S-J were the house composers for RK Films and were on their payroll till the end. Shankar Jaikishan had composed more than 350 songs for Mohammad Rafi and around 300 songs for Lata Mangeshkar. But with Mukesh also they had a great partnership. One of the primary reasons of Shankar Jaikishan association with Mukesh was because both were part of the same team of Raj Kapoor. Raj Kapoor's films were musical in nature and wherever the 3 met, Raj Kapoor, Mukesh and Shankar Jaikishan they created magic.
While Mukesh enchanted the audience in Raj Kapoor's films, in other films also Shankar Jaikishan composed beautiful tunes. In Dilip Kumar's film Yaahudi the song yeh mera deewanapan hai touched the souls of viewers. In Manoj Kumar's film Hariyali Aur Raasta, Mukesh's song ifteda-e-ishq me hum really mesmerized the audience. The list can go on. Mukesh had sung around 200 songs under the composition Shankar Jaikishan and the majority of them became immortal.
