I have selected the topic Asha Bhonsle sings for O P Nayyar for today’s second post. Singer Asha Bhonsle and Composer O P Nayyar made a great team from the beginning of their collaboration for the movie Mangu (1954). CID (1956) came as a big break for her from O P Nayyar. But then, their hard work fructified in the form of the success of Naya Daur (1957). With Pran Jaye Par Vachan Na Jaye (1974) they ended their collaboration due to some reason that is unclear. Fans of both the stalwarts lost some very good compositions that would have come from the baton of O P Nayyar and sung by Ashaji.

I just love the following songs by the 2 stalwarts. Believe me, these are not all.
Ude jab jab zulfen teri… Naya Daur (1957)
Aayiye meherbaan… Howrah Bridge (1958)
Main pyar ka rahi hoon… Ek Musafir Ek Haseena (1962)
Deewana hua badal… Kashmir Ki Kali (1964)
Isharon isharon mein dil lenewale… Kashmir Ki Kali (1964)
Jayiye aap kahan jayenge… Mere Sanam (1965)
Yeh hai reshmi zulfonka andhera… Mere Sanam (1965)
Aao huzoor tumko… Kismat (1968)
Chainse humko kabhi… Pran Jaye Par Vachan Na Jaye (1974)
