He was so impressed by her screen presence that he invited her over to Mumbai and immediately cast her in CID, directed by his chief assistant Raj Khosla, and co-starring his friend Dev Anand. During the six years of her association with Guru Dutt, Waheeda made only five films for his production company .By Dipen Guha

When she looked at the camera she could stun viewers with an indescribable photogenic magic and yrt appear to be nothing other than her natural self. This was a quality she shared with Nutan--with one difference. Waheeda Rehman's natural look was intensely sensuous. She combined this with a grace and dignity whether in CID or Pyaasa .By Dipen Guha
