Shanker Jaikishen were the Real Kings of Music. Raju Bharatan, wrote once "Always in their own style" and they befitted the qualification. They created Music rather than Composing it. `Jaan Pehchan ho' sung by Mohammed Rafi from their 1965 movie `Gumnam, was included recently in 2005 (after 40 years of its composition) in the opening scenes of the Holy-wood movie `Ghost World . Hollywood movie The Guru starring Utpal Dutta too included a Shanker Jaikishen's song from "Sasural". The english version of "Baharon Phool Barsaao" sung by Rafi only was also very popular and used in Hollywood album.

One of India most famous and first international producer - Director Ismail merchant was close To Shankar Jaikishan. and was good frd of Jaikishan. When it came to taking up a mainstream composer for his film he choosed SJ for his movie Bombay talkie(1970). Shankar jaikishan show helped him in arranging money for his further studies in America. and they also helped him in introducing to Film artists particulary the big singers like Rafi, lata, manna etc.
Note : two songs of Bombay talkie again featured in hollywood movie - "The darjeeling limted" including the brilliant Title music !
