In the 1960s, actor Rajender Kumar had a dream run. From 1963 to 1966, all his films became silver jubilee hits, meaning they ran in the theatres for more than 25 weeks. The films were the following, Dil Ek Mandir, Mere Mehboob, Ayi Milan Ki Bela, Sangam, Aarzoo, Zindagi, Suraj. Very interestingly among the heroines, Sadhna was the best opposite Rajender Kumar. In the films Mere Mehboob and Aarzoo, which were romantic in nature, the soft, romantic acting of Sadhna opposite Rajender Kumar swayed the cine-lovers in India. Both the films had fantastic music of Naushad Ali and Shankar Jaikishan. Rafisahab's brilliant songs like "mere mehboob tujhe meri muhobbat ki kasam", "chalke teri ankhon se", "tumse izhaar e haal kar baithe" stormed bollywood. Although Rajender Kumar films could not overshadow the dominance of Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar, as Raj gave Sangam, Dilip Kumar gave Leader, Ram Aur Shyam, but Rajender Kumar or Jubilee Kumar became a phenomenon in the 1960s.
