Mohd Rafi delivered a series of hit songs for Shankar Jaikishan. He used to devote so much time to them that it started hurting other composers. On one such instance, due to an SJ song recording, he reached late for a O P Nayyar song. The short tempered O P Nayyar was so furious that he debarred Rafi from his films and replaced him by Mahendra Kapoor, which went on for years.
