  • "Mala" was the first Cinema scope film, which was produced by Dosani and Mustafiz in Dhaka in the "East" Pakistan.

    Raqs zanjeer pehan kar bhi kiya jata hay...
    Neelo tried to commit suicide on February 11 after she allegedly was "kidnapped" and was forced to dance in a party honoured for Royal Guest King of Iran, Mohammad Raza Shah Pehlvi. She refused and was assaulted by the officials. Famous poet Habib Jalib payed tribute to Neelo on this bravery against a military dictator's order and wrote his famous poem "Raqs zanjeer pehan kar bhi kiya jata hai..." which latter was filmed by Neelo's husband Riaz Shahid in his super hit film Zarqa. Riaz Shahid married her after this incident.

    Film songs:
    It's very interesting fact that this classic duet song "Door veeraney mein ik Shama hay roshan kab se..." was written by Hamayet Ali Shair but its sad version was written by Qateel Shafai. He re-used "mukhra or asthai" (stanza) from duet and wrote "antra" (rest of the lyrics) by him self. (thanks to researcher and journalist Mr. Aqeel Abbas Jafri, Karachi, Pakistan).
