Abdul Rashid Kardar in Shahjehan


1946 NR

A prominent general's daughter (Ragini) is so beautiful that men would literally kill for her, prompting a king to hold a contest for her sought-after hand: a challenge to create "heaven on earth." But while a poet (K.L. Saigal) wins the right to marry her, a Persian artist (Jairaj) has actually won her heart, a situation that can only end in tragedy. This classic Bollywood drama was Saigal's final film before his death in 1947.
