You have an absolutely incorrect translation for the name of the movie.  Arshin Mal Alan means Fabric Peddler.  Arshin is an old length and distance measurement unit not someone’s name.

I assume you are talking about the US Alternative Title  Arshin Takes a Wife for Arshin mal-alan (1945).

This is not a translation of the title; it is a title that was used in the United States when the film was shown there in 1950.  Retitling was often rather slapdash, and even today it is often more for marketing than to match the original idea, so it is quite possible that a title has no actual relation to the original title (or even to the film).
