Great trivia seems to abound around here... glad to be a part. I have a question:
A friend of mine (may not remain so for long
) opines as follows about गाता रहे मेरा दिल:
The song was composed by Jaidev not SDB. Jaidev was given Guide after huge success of Humdono. He had recorded 2 songs already when Dev Ananad gave the movie to SD Burman and asked Jaidev to be his assistant. I guess its Ok to reassign movie to a different composer but to steal his work and not give him credit shoud have been below the calliber of Dev Anand and SDB. But thats how I guess it goes सोमेतिमे
How do I get rid of this notion in this person's mind? Or is there a kernel of truth here, apart from the fact that Jaidev was the Assistant, probably.
Thanks for your help in 'keeping them honest'!
