Although he never got any recognition in his native country - India, where he composed music for 26 Hindi/Urdu movies from 1946 till 1961, but his fortune changed dramatically when he migrate to Pakistan in 1962, which was then "A Land of Hopes and Opportunities" for hundreds of thousands of Indian, Bengali and Afghan immigrants.

Bazmi sahib's first assignment was director Fazli's Aisa Bhi Hota Hay (1965). The song:

  • Ho Tamanna Aur Kya, Jan-e-Tamanna Aap Hayn.. (Noorjahan)
