Khayyam has always preferred to work with the poets having strong background of poetry sidelining the regular film lyricists. That is the reason one finds poetry playing an equal role in Khayyam’s compositions as the music or the singer. Khayyam prefers to give full freedom to the poets to express their views thereby making the expression of the songs more poetic and more meaningful.
