Watch: Remembering Dev Anand through his songs

     Next
Dev Anand passed away into the ages on Sunday, December 4.

We remember the legend through his fabulous songs.

Abhi Na Jao Chhodkar, Hum Dono (1965)

One of Dev Anand's most romantic songs, Abhi Na Jao Chodkar was sung by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle. 

Please listen to Dev Anand's songs here

Dev Anand looked dashing, as he serenaded his lady, Sadhana. The song has many layers in it. As the film unfolds, Sadhana has no choice but to leave and then come back for a happy ending.
Dev Anand acted and produced Hum Dono. It was written by his brother Vijay Anand and directed by Amarjeet, who worked in Dev Anand's production house Navketan studios.
