The singers are the same actors in the song- Devika Rani and Ashok Kumar -
both singing with their own voices

Go bongs... I don't mean to be regionalistic here. It's just that very
few people know or even want to acknowledge the early contributions of the
Bengalis to the Indian & Hindi film industry. All we hear about is Shri
Dadasaheb Phalke and the likes. The other reason being that I am related to
"Devika Rani". I hope my comments are not interpreted as divisive. I am a
proud bengali, but I am also a proud Indian first. Jai hind.

Devika Rani 's Place of Birth was WALTAIR ,Now included in Visakhapatnam (A.P.) -30th March-1908 : and Expired at Banglore on 8 March 1994 - Arani-Apparao- Waltair R.S.

flon5flon, it's probably because of the time period, the 1930s, which is
one of the keywords here.

Goodness!! A YOUNG Asok Kumar! He was a great actor but certainly not the
"romantic hero" type. He seems to be more shy than the heroine here!

Do you have any more of Devika Rani? I long for her songs. There is a song
of her, Udi Hava Me Jaati Hey..

Saraswati Devi - aka Khurshid Homji. The first female music director in
Hindi films.

In 1936, Devika Rani eloped with her lover actor Najam-ul-Hussain. Himanshu
Rai somehow managed to bring her back but her paramour did not .The studio
head Himanshu Rai called upon his laboratory assistant Ashok Kumar as Hero
and thus began a six-decade-long acting career for that action.Devika Rani
is also accredited for having acted in the longest kissing scene in the
movie world with her husband Himanshu Rai in Karma (1933). It was 4 minutes
long and very controversial.

Ashok Kumar was hired by Bombay Talkies for Rs. 75 p.m. Gradually it was raised to Rs. 150 and then to Rs. 250 p.m. When he received Rs. 250 for the first time, he was so excited he could not sleep at night for fear that someone might rob him. He hid the money under his bedding and next morning deposited it in a post office. The same Ashok Kumar was getting Rs. 100, 000 for a single movie by mid-1940's (excerpts from an article in Ganje Farishte (Bald Angels) by Saadat Hassan Manto.)

@Musique4ever Where can I find this movie?I even wish to watch
Jhoola(1941).But unfortunately now-a-days these movies are one of the
toughest jobs

1936!! wow... !!
Dilip Gupte on May 07, 2012
The first love song of Hindi film music. It remained popular for about 40
years. Both Ashok Kumar and Devika Rani were bad singer still music
director Saraswati Devi composed the tune keeping in mind their range. The
song has only one stanza still mzing.
