Caption – Producer cum Music Director Rashid Attre with Noor Jehan, Ejaz Durrani, Santosh Kumar, Sabiha Khanum, Bahaar and others at the opening ceremony of Pak film Mausiqaar, released in 1962.
Even though Noor Jehan lent her voice to few Urdu and Punjabi films before 1962 including Salma (1960), Mangol (1961) and Manzil (1960) on the requests of musical giants like Feroze Nizami and Rashid Attre when she was still a singing-star, it was Mausiqaar that established herself as one of the best playback singers. The film was produced by music director Rashid Attre and of course the subject matter also revolved around music. Besides Noor Jehan, Rashid Attre used the voices of many talented singers including Naseem Begum, Mala, Munir Hussain, Salim Raza, Nazakat Ali and Salamat Ali.
