It was here that a representative of HMV recording company heard her voice and signed her for recording a qawwali, which became a surprise hit. With the help of her sister, she also started a singing-acting career in films like “Vishnu Bhakti” (1934), “Yasmin” (1935) and “Narsi Bhagat” (1940). Her first hit song was “Ab Tere Siwa Kaun Mera” (“Kismet”, 1943), composed by Anil Biswas.
