Aaiye Meharbaan (Hindi: आइये मेहरबाँ, Urdu: آیئے مہربان) "Come, Dear One!", is a song played in the 1958 Bollywood film "Howrah Bridge".

The song is played while Prem (Ashok Kumar), the male protagonist, is entertained by Edna (Madhubala), the female protagonist, who tries to protect him from some criminals.

While she performs, both she and Prem are looked by her uncle Joe (the comedic actor Dhumal), and by Pyarelal (K.N.Singh), one of the film's villains.

The playback singer was Asha Bhosle, and this song is widely regarded as one of the best collaborations between her and Madhubala.

The song's music was composed by O.P. Nayyar and the lyrics were written by Qamar Jalalabadi.
