Saawan Songs: Saawan Ke Din Aaye Re

"Sikandar" (1941) was an ambitious project. It is a historical epic set in 326 BC. It starred Prithviraj Kapoor in the role of Alexander the Great. Sohrab Modi played the Indian king Puru, also known as Porus in Greece. The female lead Sheela is credited as the singer of this song. There are other voices too, but they are not credited. The expressions on the actors' faces and their body language is interesting, reflecting the style of those days.

Singer: Sheela
Lyrics: Pandit Sudarshan
Music: Mir Sahib, Rafiq Ghaznavi
