Bollywood songs are not loved by anyone. There are some songs which are beyond time. Whenever you listen to them, they take you to a different world. A world that is everyone’s own. In which there is a lot of love, romanticism and intimacy. One such song is of Amitabh Bachchan and Rakhi, which whenever it plays, takes you to a world of fantasy. This song is from the film ‘Kabhi Kabhi’ released in 1976. The film was directed by Yash Chopra. Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Rakhi, Waheeda Rehman, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh were seen in lead roles in ‘Kabhi Kabhi’. The music of the film was given by Khyam and lyrics were by Sahir Ludhianvi. The film was released on February 27, 1976.
As it often happens, the songs of Yash Chopra’s films remain huge hits. Same was the case with this film also. Its songs were liked a lot. The magic of these songs colored in the colors of love has not diminished even today. A song from the film ‘Kabhi Kabhi’ became very popular. This song has been filmed on Rakhi and Amitabh Bachchan in the film. This song is considered to be the unique creation of famous lyricist and poet Sahir Ludhianvi. This song is taken from his poetry book Talkhiyan. There were a lot of Urdu words in it, but it was simplified for singing and this song was sometimes heard. Sahir Ludhianvi died in 1976 at the age of 59.
Sometimes an interesting incident is told about the song. It is said that Khyam had decided to include this song in a film in 1962. He wanted to include this song in Chetan Anand’s film Kaafir and had also recorded it in the voices of Geeta Dutt and Sudha Malhotra. But this film could not be released. When the film was not made, the song was also shelved. But when Kabhi Kabhi was made, Khyam gave this song to Yash Chopra. This song was sung in the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh. After this, this song got registered in the pages of history.
