Good morning @chintskap, hope you are well. Was reading the interesting story of aa ab laut chalen from Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai. Would you know how many takes they actually needed before they got it right. Asking since it was single track recording with so many musicians— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 13, 2020
The song was sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh based on the country's Independence Day celebrations, composed by Shankar Jaikishan, written by Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri and was picturised on film stalwarts Raj Kapoor and Padmini. Harsha Bhogle seems to have raised an interesting question for vintage cricket and Hindi film fans as he awaits Rishi Kapoor's response on the same.
The song is a masterpiece with piercing love, tormenting emotion, unparalleled tune, jingling music and beautiful scenery. One of the unknown facts about this song is that this song was recorded after the practice and several rehearsals of more than 36 hours non-stop.
