Costume Drama: Kyun Uda Jaata Hai Aanchal

Sometimes you come across some hidden beauties while searching for a song. Today's solo is one such. It is from a social drama "Shriman Satyawadi" (1960) starring Raj Kapoor and Shakeela.

The music for this film is composed by Dattaram Wadkar. He was a native of Goa. He came to Mumbai as a young man looking for work and met Shankar. Shankar saw some promise in him and made him a part of the Shankar Jaikishan team as an arranger and percussionist. He composed music for some films independently and was successful too, but continued assisting Shankar Jaikishan until much later.

Singer: Suman Kalyanpur
Lyrics: Hasrat Jaipuri
Music: Dattaram Wadkar
