Male-Male Duet Songs
While remaining an essential variant of the duets, male-male duets has neither been a popular format nor been an easy one to compose. We have only two male-male duets for the year, essentially with chorus support.
Mohammad Rafi, Khan Mastana, Chorus – Watan Ki Raah Mein Watan Ke Naujawan Shaheed Ho – Shaheed – Ghulam Haider – Raja Mahendi Ali Khan
Mukesh, Shailesh, Chorus – Rab Mere Araj Sun Meri, Sharan Ab Teri – Aag – Ram Ganguli – Saraswatikumar ‘Dipak’
1948 has quite a fairly large selection of triads or triad+ songs. All of the songs that could be listed form HFGK do not have digital link on the most of the otherwise rich reference platforms.

Having read and heard songs in this post, I wonder why one of popular song was not added to that era of film Jungnu (1947) ‘Woh Apni Yaad Dilaane Ko’ sung by Mohd.Rafi and Chorus.
Presently, we are discussing the songs for only one year – 1948.
Having started this forum from year 1953 and going backwards every year, it is expected that Songs of Yore would next take up year 1947.
