The younger generation may know Suraiya with connections to her love affair with evergreen actor Dev Anand. Besides her love affair she was the most saleable actress and commanded remuneration twice her contemporary actresses like Kamini Kaushal and Noorjahan.

It's reported, that her popularity reached to such a zenith that during the premier of the movie BADI BEHEN her fans went berserk creating turmoil resulting in police resorting to lathi charge, a rare incident witnessed ever in the history of Hindi cinema!

After this incident Suraiya never attended any of her premieres fearing her fanatic fans. It may be hard to believe but it's true that outside her house, Krishna Mahal at Marine drive in Mumbai, from dawn to dusk her crazy fans used to hang around to have just a dekho of their beloved star. In fact, moving around for Suraiya had become so problematic that Suraiya had to take police protection round the clock both at her residence as well as while leaving out-of-doors!

Further, lore has it that actor Dharmendra in his juvenile days was so passionate about Suraiya that he saw her film DILLAGI forty times, each time walking on foot, miles to reach the cinema hall!
