Riding over huge success in their first movie, Shankar Jaikishan needed more assignments to prove that they were not just one-time phenomenon. They started taking assignments apart from those. Their albums of Awara, Nagina and Poonam among others established them as the leading composers-duo.
Later, music scores of Awara and Shree 420 among others became very popular abroad. Shankar Jaikishan magic spread across globe.
