Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was adapted from the British thriller "A Kiss Before Dying" (1991).
  • This was actress Shilpa Shetty's debut film.
  • This film came Shah Rukh Khan's way only after Salman Khan had rejected it because the character was a negative one. Despite the negative overtones of his character in the film, this became a breakthrough film for Shah Rukh and established him as a solo lead actor.[1]
  • This film was remade in Telugu as "Vetagaadu" (1995), in Tamil as "Samrat" (1997) and in Kannada as "Nagarahavu" (2002).
  • The makers of this film had considered casting Sridevi in a double-role to play the role of the two sisters in this film. They later felt that she was too big for this film and that casting two new actresses instead - Kajol and Shilpa Shetty - would be better.[2]
  • Nadeem - Shravan were the initial choice to compose music for this film. After a misunderstanding with actress Tanuja, Nadeem demanded that her daughter Kajol be removed from the film. When the film's producers refused to do so, Nadeem - Shravan walked out of the film and Anu Malik was brought in.[3]
  • Actress Rakhee and some of the distributors of this film were not happy with the film's original climax in which Shah Rukh's character died. They believed that the audience would prefer a happier ending and suggested a climax in which his character survived. Abbas - Mustan shot both versions of the climax but finally used the original one.[4]

    Song

  • Baazigar O Baazigar - Inspired by the dramatic beginning of the song "Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai" ("Guide", 1965), Anu Malik started this song with the second line of the mukhda.[5]
  • Ae Mere Humsafar Ae Meri Jaanejaan - It appears that Anu Malik adapted Laxmikant - Pyarelal's "Khoobsurat Haseena" ("Mr. X In Bombay", 1964) for this song.[6]
  • Ae Mere Humsafar Ae Meri Jaanejaan - Anu Malik developed the opening tune of this song to compose "Ishq Hua Kaise Hua" ("Ishq", 1997).[7]
  • Samajh Kar Chand Jis Ko - This was lyricist Zameer Kazmi's first Hindi film song.
  • Kitaben Bahut Si Padhi Hogi Tumne - The synth interlude in this song is similar to the tune of Gershon Kingsley's "Popcorn". Another Hindi film song, "Abhi Abhi Thi Dushmani" ("Zakhmee", 1975), used a very similar interlude. It is not known if Anu Malik based his interlude on the original "Popcorn" or the inspired song from "Zakhmee". Anu Malik also used this tune for the mukhda of the song "LML Baba LML" ("Haathkadi", 1995).[8][9][10]
  • Kitaben Bahut Si Padhi Hogi Tumne - The tune of the saxophone solo in the interlude of this song was used in three other Anu Malik songs - in the second interlude of "Aa Zara Mere Hamnasheen" ("Poonam", 1983), in the chorus in the prelude of "Aap Ka Chehra Aap Ka Jalwa" ("Tahalka", 1992) and for the mukhda of "Tu Fiza Hai" ("Fiza", 2000).[11][12][13]
  • Chhupana Bhi Nahin Aata - II - Singer Vinod Rathod and music director Anu Malik made a cameo appearance onscreen for this song.
  • Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen - The opening of this Anu Malik song was copied from The Cover Girls' hit "Because Of You" (1987). The tune of the song itself was an adaptation of Dean Martin's "The Man Who Plays The Mandolino" (1947). The Dean Martin song was also the basis of Snehal Bhatkar's "Lehron Pe Lehar Ulfat Hai Jawan" ("Chhabili", 1960).[14][15][16]
