NAYI KAHAANI (1943) was produced under the banner of Prabhat Film Company and directed by D D Kashyap. The star cast included Jairaj, Miss Ross, B Nadrekar, Shalini, Paresh Banerjee, Master Balakram etc. I had not heard of Miss Rose as an actress. A search on the website did not reveal much information about her except some basic information here. She was born as Rose Masbiah in Calcutta (Kolkatta) in a Jewish family. Her filmography indicates that she started working for Madan Theatres in Calcutta starting with the film ‘Hindustan’ (1932). Sometime around 1938, she shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) and joined Sagar Movietone. After the closure of Sagar Movietone, she seems to have become a freelance actor doing roles in films produced under the banners of Ranjit Movietone, National Studios and other film production banners in Bombay/Poona. During her career, she acted in 24 films. ‘Daasi Yaa Maan’ (1946) was her last film. She was a good singer and in a few films, she sang her own songs.

When I was growing up in 1970s then I had propounded a theory about the actors and movie makers of Hindi movies. My thoery was that the movie makers needed to take the movie going janta for a ride by serving them fare that they liked. In cruder terms, movie going public had to be fooled into partonising their movies. And the movie makers needed to be on their toes because it was obviously not possible to keep serving them the same fare.

We are so used to Mukesh being the voice of Raj Kapoor that we do not pause to think how it would be if Raj Kapoor sang for himself.

Like what was the case with other songs of “Main Sundar hoon”, I had listened to this song and liked it during 1971, but I was not aware that this song was from “Main Sundar Hoon”.
