In Nitin Bose's Waris (1954), Suraiya costarred with singing star Talat
Mehmood (incidentally, she played heroine opposite another singer who tried to
be an actor, Mukesh, in 1953's Mashuqa, too). With the sonorous melody, Rahi
matwale, Anil Biswas and Suraiya proved their continuing relevance in a new age.
