With the stardom achieved from the success of “Do Bhai”, Geetaji became extremely busy.
Almost as if by magic, an obscure singer not known to many people across the country, became a celebrity and a household word
overnight. As her record sales soared people swarmed restaurants and other meeting places to hear her singing as the radios
played these songs.
Aware of what she was able to achieve in a relatively short period of time, producers and music directors started offering her plum assignments that took advantage of her singing talents. This overwhelming demand had Geetaji work in at least 12 movies in 1948. There were some familiar music directors who worked with her earlier and a few others who were working with her for the very first time.
In “Chunariya”, music director Hansraj Behl had Geetaji sing six songs. Four of these were solos and one was a duet. The sixth one had four singers including Geetaji. For “Heer Ranjha” music director Khayyam had her sing five solos. Burmanda had Geetaji sing two songs in his “Shabnam”. Both of these were duets. The other movies she sang for in 1948 include music director D.C. Dutt’s “Anjana” (a solo), maestro Prem Nath’s “Chand Sitare” (three solos), Gyan Dutt’s “Chand Ki Chandni” (two solos), a solo in the movie “Harischandra”, two solos in “Hua Savera”, two songs in Ghulam Haider’s “Majboor” (a solo and a duet), Chitragupt’s “Mala The Mighty” (a solo), and K. Dutta’s “Meri Kahani” (three solos and a duet).
For Nashad (Shaukat Ali Dehalvi) Geetaji sang in two movies. These were “jeene Do” (six solos) and “Toote Taare” ( two solos and two duets).
