    Majrooh Sultanpuri was supposed to write most of the songs of the film. In between, he got invitation for a Mushaira and he wanted to attend it. Director Kamal Amrohi didn't want him to go before completing the song he was working on then. But Majrooh told him clearly that poetry and participation in Mushaira were his first preference and he left. Furious Amrohi roped in Kaifi Azmi to complete the song.

    The cult film that ensured the lasting reputation of Kamal Amrohi was the 1971 bix-office success, Pakeezah. The film had been launched in 1958, when Meena Kumari was still married to Amrohi. The production was interrupted on account of their divorce. Meena Kumari accepted, in 1971, just before her death, to return to the project. The great love story is, first and foremost, a homage to the poetic tradition of Indo-Muslim India, as expressed in music and dance, amongst the princely classes.

    PAKEEZAH took 17 long years to complete and since Meena Kumari could not match her steps to one of the dance numbers because of age, Director Kamal Amrohi had to bring in Padma Khanna, and made her to dance to the number with her face covered with Ghunghat

    Meena Kumari passed away just after a month of her super hit movie "Pakeezah".

    Meena Kumari died two months after the film released. Until then, it had had a lukewarm response at the box-office, but afterwards it became a hit and acquired cult status. It also unfortunately acquired the unfortunate distinction of being considered as Kumari's last film.
