Dharmendra – Mohammed Rafi

I don’t have the data, but I believe Rafi has sung the more number of songs for Dharmendra than any other actor. It started right from 1961 until 1982. Dharmendra being such a prolific actor acted in nearly 200 movies during this period. He insisted Rafi should sing at least one of the songs for his movies during this time. Secondly, Laxmikant-Pyarelal scored music for many Dharmendra movies in this time and they preferred Rafi over Kishore Kumar.
