'Madam' Noor Jehan was perhaps one of the earliest stars of Hindi cinema. She later migrated to Pakistan. The cleft-chinned darling of the newly formed Pakistan, Noor Jehan was not only a singer and an actor admired by her audience, but also respected by even the great poets and artistes of both the countries.
On her 93th death anniversary on 23 December 2019, find out why Urdu poet Faiz Ahmad Faiz gifted Noor Jehan one of his nazms, why Dilip Kumar had a reverential respect for his Jugnu co-star, and why there was a deep sense of affection and respect between the two Queens of Melody – Lata Mangeshkar and Noor Jehan.
Catch all this and more in this special Urdunama podcast on Noor Jehan.
