His most famous compositions are for Geeta Dutt, such as Aaj ki Kaalighata and Uski Kahani (1966), Lyrics: Kaifi Azmi, and the songs of Geeta Dutt's last film as a singer, Anubhav (1971) – "Koi Chupke Se Aake", "Mera Dil Jo Mera Hota" and "Meri Jaan Mujhe Jaan Na Kaho".[1] He also gave two hits to Manna Dey in Anubhav – "Phir Koi Phool Khila" and in Avishkaar – "Hansne Ki Chaah Ne Kitna Mujhe Rulaya Hai". The Jagjit and Chitra Singh rendition of "Babul Mora Naihar Chhooto Jaye" in Avishkaar (1973) is also fairly well known. His other films were not so successful, however.
