Main shaayar to nahin

Posted on: March 10, 2009


After the box office failure of “Mera naam Joker”, Raj Kapoor decided to make a clean break from the past. When he decided to make a teenage love story, he signed up an entirely new team.

Laxmikant Pyarelal were signed up as music director ( whereas it used to be Shankar Jaikishan till then) . Laxmikant Pyarelal were very excited about this opportunity and they decided to give their best in this movie and made their plans accordingly.

In the meanwhile, Raj Kapoor was looking for a fresh voice to give playback for Rishi Kapoor. V P Sathe, scriptwriter of Raj Kapoor informed this to his friend Jogendra Singh (who used to be Chief Assistant Director of V. Shantaram). Jogendra Singh sent his son Shailendra Singh, then a Pune film institute student, to V P Sathe. Raj Kapoor, after listening to the voice of the young man, pattem him on the back and assured Shailendra Singh that he would give playback for Rishi Kapoor.

Laxmikant Pyarelal, who were hoping to create memorable music in this movie using Rafi as the male voice, were not amused. But then Raj kapoor put his foot down, saying that his son was playing a 16 yera old boy, and so the fresh voice of Shailendra Singh alone will do. And obvously Laxmikant Pyarelal had to bow before the wishes of Raj Kapoor.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

The first song that Shailendra Singh sang in this movie was a solo song “main shaayar to nahin” and it took the audience by storm. The voice really suited Riishi Kapoor who looked so young and baby faced in this movie.

Here is this memorable debut song of Shailendra Singh as well as Rishi Kapoor.

Song-Main shaayar to nahin (Bobby) (1973) Singer-Shailendra Singh, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Main shaayar to nahin
Main shaayar to nahin
magar ai haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko shaayari aa gayi
Main shaayar to nahin
magar ai haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko shaayari aa gayi
main aashiq to nahin
magar ai haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko aashiqui aa gayi
main shaayar to nahin

pyaar ka naam maine suna tha magar
pyaar kya hai ye mujhko nahin thi khabar
pyaar ka naam maine suna tha magar
pyaar kya hai ye mujhko nahin thi khabar
main to uljha raha uljhano ki tarah
doston me raha dushmano ki tarah
main dushman to nahin
main dushman to nahin
magar ai haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko dosti aa gayi
main shaayar to nahin

Sochta hoon agar main duaa maangta
haath apne uthaakar main kyaa maangta
Sochta hoon agar main duaa maangta
haath apne uthaakar main kyaa maangta
Jab se tujhse muhabbat main karne laga
tabse jaise ibaadat main karne laga
main kaafir to nahin
main kaafir to nahin
magar ai haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko bandagi aa gayi
main shayar to nahin
magar ai haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko shaayari aa gayi
main shaayar to nahin

Lyrics of unrecorded version:

main shaayar to nahin…..
main shaayar to nahin
magar aye haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko shaayari aa gayee

main shayar to nahin
magar aye haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko shaayari aa gayee

main aashiq to nahin
magar aye haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko aashiqui aa gayee

pyaasi pyaasi nigaahon se jeete hue
maine logon ko dekha hai peete hue
pyaasi pyaasi nigaahon se jeete hue
maine logon ko dekha hai peete hue
jab bhi saawan main baadal barasne laga
aur bhi kuchh mera dil tarasne laga

main maykash to nahin
main maykash to nahin
magar aye haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko maykashi aa gayee
main shayar to nahin

kya hua uth ke mehfil se jaane lagi
hoke magroor aankhe churaane lagi
kya hua uth ke mehfil se jaane lagi
hoke magroor aankhe churaane lagi
tere dil se zara dillagi main karoon
thodi si apni tareef bhi main karoon
tu dilbar to nahin
tu dilbar to nahin
magar aye haseen
jabse dekha toone mujhko
tujhko dilbari aa gayee

main shayar to nahin
magar aye haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko shaayari aa gayee

main shayar to nahin……
