Magic in Tunes: 02/06/2015 – Jis Raat Ke Khwaab Aaye

While browsing for a song I came across this video where Naushad (legendery Hindi Film Music Director) speaks about the last song sung by Mohd. Rafi for his music. What a deep impact Naushad must have made for Mohd. Rafi to shed tears of happiness on given the chance to sing such a beautiful song.

This song is supposed to be sung for the 1980 Hindi movie Habba Khatoon. Lyrics to this song were penned by Ali Sardar Jaffrey. The movie was based on the famous Kashmiri poetess Habba Khatoon AKA Zooni and her beau Yusuf Shah Chak, the last independent ruler of Kashmir. However, after a while this movie was shelved, for reasons unknown.
