Prem Jogan Ban Ke – Mughal-E-Azam(1960)

Many consider the Mughal-E-Azam soundtrack to be Naushad’s masterpiece. While there may be difference of opinion on that, it was no less a masterstroke by K.Asif and Naushad to get Bade Ghulam Ali Khan to sing in a Hindi film, which was Mughal-E-Azam. The Khan didn’t disappoint. Presented below is his classical rendition based on the raga Sohini, apparently being sung by Tansen in the background of the picturization on Anarkali (Madhubala) and Saleem (Dilip Kumar).
