A tune which travelled from Gujarati to Telugu

From a post in 'Songs of Yore' this 1949-1950 Ajit Merchant tune from a Gujarati film Divadandi seems to have traveled from Gujarati to Telugu via Hindi
Hindi version by the same MD from 1959
There was also a duet by Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur same year with the same MD
Finally, a Telugu version from 1961 version from the film 'velugu needalu'
( Most of the information is from Shri Arunkumar Deshmukh and the last one from Shri J.K. Mohana Rao)
One which was adapted more than once in several languages seems to be a Carmen Miranda song, probably first by Rajeswararao in a 1941 Tamil film
_links to more adaptions of the song in
