“Pyaasa” (1957) Waheeda Rehman as Gulaab in the Aaj Sajan Mohe Ang Laaga Lo song sequence, photographed by VK Murthy, directed by Guru Dutt   -   my screenshots 2 of 2

Waheeda Rehman:

“ He then said, ‘Who do you love the most in your life?’ I said, 'My mother and father.’ 'Who do you love the very most?’ I said, 'My father, because he spoilt me the most.’ Then he said, 'He’s dead, isn’t he?’ I said, 'Yes.’ 'Imagine if your father were alive. Imagine your father is standing on the terrace. You don’t know why you’re afraid to go to him, but you are. There is a force pulling you to him. You’re dying to go up to him and hug him.’

At that point, I really started missing my father. Guru Dutt noticed that my expression had changed. He said, 'Murthy, lights on, roll the camera.’”
