Irani recognized the importance that sound would have on the cinema, and raced to complete Alam Ara before several other contemporary sound films. Alam Ara debuted at the Majestic Cinema in Mumbai (then Bombay) on March 14, 1931.[3] The first Indian talkie was so popular that "police aid had to be summoned to control the crowds."
