I may have joined around 150 + Sahir songs in collaborations or performed solos or created collabs joined by others..
I may have joined aound 300 different people while collaborating for Sahir Centenary in somewhere around 150 distinct songs for close to 75 films..
1965 film Waqt directed by Yash Chopra and music by Ravi.. the record is 8 out of 8 songs .
The songs from 1976 film Kabhi Kabhie again directed by Yash Chopra and music composed by Khayyam enjoys the most number of recordings for any film ..
