Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was Rajesh Khanna's debut film. He was offered "Raaz" (1967) earlier but it was released only the next year. Khanna landed the lead role in this Chetan Anand film by winning a talent contest conducted by Filmfare and a consortium of film producers who had come together to form a banner called United Producers. As a winner of this contest, Rajesh Khanna got the opportunity to feature in films by each of these producers. Other than Anand, this group of producers included G.P. Sippy, B.R. Chopra, Shakti Samanta, Nasir Husain, and Bimal Roy.[1]
  • This was the debut Hindi film of Naqi Jahan, the daughter of model and actress Esther Victoria Abraham, known by her stage name Pramila. Pramila and Naqi were the first mother-daughter pair to be crowned Miss India. While Pramila was the winner of the first Miss India pageant in 1947, Naqi Jahan won the crown in 1967.
  • The film was remade in Tamil as "Poonthalir" (1979) and in Telugu as "Chinnari Chitti Babu" (1981).
  • Jatin Khanna assumed the screen name Rajesh Khanna in this film since another Jatin Khanna had debuted the previous year in the film "Jab Jab Phool Khile" (1965) and he wanted to avoid the confusion of having two actors in the industry with the same name. While Rajesh Khanna went on to become a superstar, Jatin remained a minor actor.[2][3]
  • All the films Chetan Anand made between 1964 and 1975, except this one, had Madan Mohan as the music director. Anand was so pleased with the composer's work in "Haqeeqat" (1964) that he chose to retain him for all his films. Anand had to go with Khayyam for this film since Madan Mohan was busy at the time.[4][5]

    Song

  • Rut Jawan Jawan Raat Meharban - The song was filmed on singer Bhupinder himself. This prominent accordion in this song was played by Kersi Lord.[6]
  • Rut Jawan Jawan Raat Meharban - The trumpet in this song was played by Chic Chocolate (born Antonio Xavier Vaz), a jazz musician and trumpet player who assisted music director Khayyam in the film. In fact, Chic Chocolate himself appeared on the screen as the trumpet player in the song. The veteran Hindi film music arranger and sessions musician died about a year after the film's release. Sometime after his death, the Gramophone Company of India (GCI) released a commemorative record titled "Chic Chocolate - A Remembrance" (1968). The record featured four theme music tracks from the background score of this film - "Tickle Me Not", "Contessa", "Excitement", and "Feel Chic". According to the tribute on the record sleeve, these were "his last compositions".[7]
