Though the jhola existed far before the movie Shabnam was released, it was made popular as 'Shabnam' by it as Dilip Kumar and Actress Kamini would be seen wearing it in the movie which released in 1949. The jhola has been a companion for numerous noted journalists, activists, social workers, poets, students and a whole generation of Indians.
