The worth mentioning and Super hit films of 1952 was Dopatta which was directed by Sibtain Fazali, its filming was carried out in Shahnoor studio. The major contribution of the success of this film was its music which composed by Feroz Nizami and all songs were sung by Noor Jahan so that’s way it became the third great musical film after Jungu and Chan Way both from Noor Jehan and musician Feroz Nizami. Beside singing Noor Jahan had already debut her career as actress prior to the partition but in Pakistan she appeared in Dopatta for the first time in any Urdu film.

Fazali Sahib’s film Dopatta was the next film which was a muslim social love story, it has the same story like Chan Way, Santosh Kumar and Ajey Kumar played the role of Santosh Kumar and Jahangir Khan. Songs were written by new lyricists Musheer Kazmi and Arsh Lakhnavi and Feroz Nizami gave them such an everlasting tunes that even today the songs are as popular as it used to be at the time of release of the film.
