5 INTERESTING UNKNOWN FACTS:

Vowed to remain a spinster for the rest of her life after her family opposed her marriage to Dev Anand.

After her death, Suraiya`s property at Worli and her house at Marine Drive went into a legal dispute, as she did not leave behind an explicit will.

Her reign at the top was from 1947 to 1952, during which period she acted in 38 films.

During the shooting of the film Afsar (1950), Dev Anand again formally proposed to her and gave her a diamond ring worth rupees 3000, a huge sum in those days. Suraiya was glad to be proposed to, but soon her grandmother found out about her engagement and threw her ring into the sea.

While she was singing for children`s programs for All India Radio in Bombay, as a six-year-old, Raj Kapoor and Madan Mohan were her co-artists.
