Born as Ganga Sagar Talwar in Baffa, near Abbottabad city, now Pakistan, the writer is said to have adapted the title ''Sarhadi'' to carry with him the connection of the frontier province, after he migrated to Delhi aged 12.

Sarhadi began his career writing Urdu short stories and became an Urdu playwright. Filmmaker Yash Chopra''s 1976 "Kabhi Kabhie", starring Amitabh Bachchan and Raakhee, opened the gates for his Bollywood career.

The writer collaborated with Chopra to pen screenplay in acclaimed films like "Silsila" (1981) and Sridevi and Rishi Kapoor starrer "Chandni", for which he wrote the dialogues.

In 1982, Sarhadi turned director with "Bazaar", starring Supriya Pathak Shah, Farooq Shaikh, Smita Patil and Naseeruddin Shah.

Sarhadi is also credited with writing dialogues for superstar Shah Rukh Khan''s debut "Deewana" in 1992 and Hrithik Roshan''s debut "Kaho Na Pyaar Hai".
