The film released on Chaitra Navratri, Devi song rocked, Jitendra-Reena Roy’s luck shone

Mumbai: Navratri seems dull without the bhajan ‘Tune Mujhe Bhalaya Sherawaliye’ from the 80’s blockbuster film ‘Aasha’. Released on March 21, 1980, on the occasion of Chaitra Navratri, the film had a pair of Jeetendra-Reena Roy but this hymn was shot on Jitendra and T Rameshwari. In this film, Rameshwari played the role of Jitendra’s onscreen wife but the pairing of Jitendra and Reena Roy became a hit. Let us tell the story of the film ‘Asha’ on the auspicious occasion of Navratri.

The 1980 film ‘Asha’, directed by J Om Prakash, was decorated with music by the Laxmikant-Pyarelal duo. Although there are 6 songs in this film, but two songs are so powerful that even today music lovers get excited after listening to them. One is ‘You have called me Sherawaliye’, the other is ‘Be it glass or heart, it breaks after all’. This song was sung by Lata Mangeshkar, while the famous bhajan was once sung by Mohammed Rafi and once by Narendra Chanchal. The appeal of this bhajan made on Mata Rani is still working for 43 years. The songs of this film were written by Anand Bakshi.
