Here’s the story behind Tum Bin’s iconic Koi Fariyaad sung by Jagjit Singh


The Ghazal King, Jagjit Singh is hugely popular and is one of the most successful ghazal singers of all time. The Padma Bhushan awardee has sung for many Bollywood films and his song, Koi Fariyaad is one of the most popular ones. In fact, Koi Fariyaad was a huge reason for the success of Tum Bin‘s OST and it wasn’t easy getting the emotion behind the song right. “Ghazal was to play a very integral part in telling the story. Faaiz Anwar was essentially a shayar and not a lyricist, but when I told him to write a ghazal for Tum Bin, the whole idea was I’d approve one sher (couplet) and then he would write the song around that. He would tell me a sher every now and then, and I kept refusing. Finally, I was at some shoot and he called me, and recited the lines “Ek lamhe mein simat aaya hai sadiyon ka safar. Zindagi tez bahut tez chali ho jaise.” I jumped at it and said this is it! He started laughing and asked me if I was aware that it was the 82nd sher, which means I had already rejected 81 shers,” director Anubhav Sinha told a leading daily.

Tum Bin marked Anubhav Sinha’s directorial debut and was also Bhushan Kumar’s first production. The popular film also launched the careers of four newbies – Priyanshu Chatterjee, Sandali Sinha, Raqesh Bapat and Himanshu Malik. According to trade reports, more than two lakh cassettes of Tum Bin‘s music were sold back then.

“This feels surreal. From taking ahead my father’s vision to today producing films and continuing the main goal of T-Series as a music label, my team and I are grateful to God for a successful 20 years. Tum Bin will always remain special to me. It not only marked my debut as a producer but it also made me believe in my dreams and encouraged me to lead the company. I trusting Anubhav’s vision and his faith in me helped us make a film and music that broke records. I am glad we are still working together and giving our audience films they will love,” says producer Bhushan Kumar about completing two decades in the Hindi film industry.


It’s also Anubhav Sinha’s 20th year as a director and this is what he had to say: “It was early 2000 at 3AM I was shooting a music video for T-Series when Bhushan called. He had just seen another video that I had delivered in the afternoon. It was the third video on the trot that he had loved. He asked me ‘Sir shall we make a film?’ Eighteen months later we released one with AKS also this was two weeks after Gadar and Lagaan. We could only muster hundred and five screens countrywide. I remember standing outside Central Plaza theater at 6 PM with our Bombay Distributor Vimal Agarwal. Looking at the crowd thronging to the box office Vimal Ji with all his experience said ‘Sir, ye to opening lag gayi apni’. That was Tum Bin. Bhushan and I didn’t even know that night that we would be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the film. Not many films live that long no matter how big a hit. Tum Bin continues to be a hit even with people who were five that year. I wonder how. That was the beginning of A relationship with Bhushan that has reached a stage where none of us can instantly answer how many films we are doing together today. We will have to pause and count. Thank you Bhushan for the break and everything thereafter.”
