Q. Why in 40s, 50s and early 60s Bollywood movies has lot depicting about Muslim society, culture and art?

Because a lot of Muslims got fed up of their social restrictions in family against music and art. They joined bollywood. Lot of lyrics writers, music directors, actors, actresses were Muslims. So obviously, that got depicted in films as well. But also note that lot of Muslims contributed to Hindu culture in bollywood as well. They would prefer Hindu names. And make career singing and composing Bhajans or acting in such scenes. Like Naushad and Rafi and Dilip Kumar.
