Shankar and Jaikishan worked separately
With increasing work pressure, Shankar and Jaikishan started giving music independently. Lyricist Shailendra (for the next few years until his untimely death) mostly worked with Shankar and lyricist Hasrat Jaipuri with Jaikishan.
Jaikishan was then a married man and started composing music from his home whereas Shankar was working from their music studio. However, there was give-and-take in a great way, and collaboration continued.
