Razia Sultan is 1983 Hindi film, written and directed by Kamal Amrohi, and starring Hema Malini, Parveen Babi and Dharmendra in lead roles.[1]

N.B. Kulkarni won the Filmfare Award for Best Art Direction, the only win for the film. Khayyam received a Filmfare nomination for Best Music Director.[2] Lyrics were by Jan Nisar Akhtar and two songs by Nida Fazli who walked into the project when Akhtar died. Some songs were sung by Lata Mangeshkar, including "Aye Dil-e Nadaan".


The film is based on the life of Razia Sultan (1205–1240), the only female Sultan of Delhi (1236–1240) and her speculated love affair with the Abyssinian slave, Jamal-ud-Din Yakut.


It was the second time that Khayyam worked for a Kamal Amrohi movie. Earlier he had given music for Shankar Hussain, a movie produced by Amrohi. There is a story as to how Kamal got liking for Khayyam's music. Once Kamal Amrohi and his wife liked a song that they had listened on radio The song was "Parbaton Ke Pedon Par" and was sung by Mohammad Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur. Later on, they learnt that this song was composed by Khayyam for a movie called Shagoon. However, by the time Razia Sultan went on floors. Laxmikant-Pyarelal became the most sought after music director duo. So, Amrohi signed them. But, he did not like one fast paced tune composed by the duo for the film and told them to compose a new tune instead. When Kamal went to the duo's place to listen to their new tune, he was asked to wait as the music directors were in a meeting. Insulted that he was asked to wait by someone so junior to him, Kamal replaced them with Khayyam.
