"The record of the song was originally released with the name of the narrative character, Kamini, credited as the singer, but it became so popular that "thousands of requests for the song used to pour in at the radio station along with a request to mention the name of the singer while playing the record. The officials approached HMV to find out who the singer of this runaway hit was. As a result of this, Lata's name began to be announced over the radio. It was only with the film Barsaat that names of the playback artistes began appearing on the records and on screen"

A rare version of song Aayega Aanewala, composed by music director Khemchand Prakash, for Kamal Amrohi’s strange thriller film "Mahal" (1949).
You might notice the music on this particular version of the popular song sounds more clear, you can hear lot more of the instruments, and the real genius of Khemchand Prakash shrines through in all its glory. The version of the song "Aayega Aanewala" used in this video is from the LP When Melody Was Queen (Regal Records, 1969 ). A great collection of 12 classic tracks from the 1950's and the 60's.
Found the album here at Eastern Eye blog.
