B R Chopra's unforgettable movies


B R Chopra got Pakistani actress Salma Agha to play the title role.

The role was initially meant to go to Zeenat Aman, who had earlier acted in another path-breaking Chopra film, Insaaf Ka Tarazu. Later, however, Chopra felt Zeenat's Western looks and image would not work for a Muslim social drama.

Salma Agha, whom he had met in London through Raj Kapoor, entered the picture. Cast opposite her were Deepak Parishar and Raj Babbar.

Nikaah's unforgettable music, composed by Ravi and Ghulam Ali, took the film to a different level altogether. The song Dil ke arman aansoon mein beh gaye and Chupke chupke raat din continue to be immensely popular even today.

The film, which dealt with the subject of marriage and divorce, made Salma Agha an overnight star.
