According to author, musicologist and film critic Rajesh Subramanian reveals that composer Naushad was first offered the film. He refused when producer S. M. Sriramulu Naidu insisted that the songs had to be composed in a week. C Ramchandra was roped and the melodies were composed in a record time. According to a book published by Raju Bharatan, film director Naidu requested Naushad to compose 10 tunes within 30 days for which he would get his "due payment". To this the great maestro is reported to have said: "Naidusaab, yeh koi baniye ki dukaan samjha aapne? Ek gaana nahi milega aapko tees din main". (Naidusaab, do you think this is a baniya store? You will not get even one song in 30 days.) (source: rediff.com)
