Mungda Originally Meant for Mera Naam Joker

Very few people know that the famous song "Mungda" was actually written for Raj Kapoor's Mera Naam Joker. It was not included in the film because that would have meant the producers would have to add a 3rd intermission in the movie, on top of the 2 existing ones.

The song was actually supposed to be sung by the Russian girl from the circus to Raju.

How do I know this? Because the song's second line is "Mangta hai to aaja Russia naahi to main yeh chali"
