Quiz Question: Classical bandish

Here's a quiz q. I have this classical bandish in Raga Bilaskhaani Todi sung by Smt. Malini Rajurkar (Alurkar Music House, Pune. 1994). The lyricist/composer is (Pt) Dr. S. N. Ratanjankar. This bandish has inspired a famous Hindi Film song. Identify the Hindi Film song, the film, the MD and the lyricist. It is quite simple really. [Hint: 1990s film. Singer: Asha Bhonsle]

Btw, Bilaskhaani = after its creator Vilas Khan, son of Tansen.

Here are the lyrics of the bandish in ITRANS and Nagari. You ought to have a UTF-8 compatible browser to view the Nagari font.

sthaayii

vahii jaao jaao jaao balam
jin juvatiisan kiinhii r.ngaraliyaa.N

a.ntaraa
dekhii dekhii torii nehaa kii riit
bhalii jo akelii biirahaa kii maarii
ab naa banaao banaao na batiiyaa.N

Nagari
स्थायी


वही जाओ जाओ जाओ बलम
जिन जुवतीसन कीन्ही रंगरलियाँ

अंतरा
देखी देखी तोरी नेहा की रीत

भली जो अकेली बीरहा की मारी
अब ना बनाओ बनाओ न बतीयाँ

I love the Bilaskhani Todi bandish composed by (Pt) Dr. S. N. Ratanjankar - Vohii jao jao. I am looking for the original notation of this bandish from Pandit ji. Where can I find it?
