Quiz #13

A seemingly complicated but actually pretty simple question.

X is a multi-talented personality who was considered for a role (in all probability the lead role) in a hit movie of the late 80s. X was a part of a recent movie in which he had parodied a poem Y written during the freedom struggle and was made popular by a freedom fighter A. X had also written the lyrics for another movie by the same director whose music was composed by W. Y was also used in another movie which had used A as a character and whose music was composed by Z. Identify X,Y,Z and W. (0.25 each)


X is Piyush Mishra who was reportedly considered for Maine Pyaar Kiya. And the recent movie he was a major part of is obviously Gulaal where he sang a version of Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna (Y), made popular by Bhagat Singh (A). Another movie by Anurag Kashyap which had lyrics by Piyush Mishra was Black Friday which had music done by Indian Ocean (W). And the other movie we were referring to which used Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna was The Legend of Bhagat Singh which had music scored by A R Rahman (Z).
