Not really the same song, but two fine mujras with basically the same title that came out at roughly the same time.

(Asha on Padmini, from Mera Naam Joker, 1970. Male singer is Manna Dey (on an amusingly disguised Raj Kapoor?), music directors are Shankar Jaikishan.) (BTW, I am pretty certain this song wasn’t even on my Shemaroo copy of the film. I can’t go through the whole disc beause it’s a bit trashed now, but I don’t even see it in the menus.)

(From Umrao Jaan Ada, 1972 (predating a few Indian films based on that novel…). Runa Laila on Rani, music director is Nisar Bazmi.)
