Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was actor Anil Dhawan's debut Hindi film. The film was originally supposed to feature Shatrughan Sinha in the lead role. However, Sinha felt that the role needed an innocence he did not possess and recommended Dhawan, who had recently graduated from the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII). Sinha ended up playing a cameo role in the film.[1]
  • This was actress Rehana Sultan's first film with filmmaker B.R. Ishara. They went on to do a few more films together and got married in 1984.
  • The film, which told the story of a call girl, generated controversy for its bold theme. There was a lot of outrage over its poster, which displayed Rehana Sultana's bare legs in the foreground with Anil Dhawan visible in the background, between her thighs. Ignoring the protests of some prominent filmmakers, the CBFC order a few minor cuts in the film and gave it an 'A' rating. Despite some theatres choosing not to show it because of its controversial content, the film was a big hit. Such was the film's success that rival producers of bigger films reportedly attempted to sabotage it by hiring people to sit in the audience and heckle Anil Dhawan during the sequence of a hit Mukesh song. According to Rehana Sultan, the film ended up typecasting her. She said in an interview, "The image damaged my career. Filmmakers wanted some sex in any movie I featured. I said: No, thank you!".[2][3][4]
  • Editor I.M. Kunnu decided to bail out director B.R. Ishara and produce the film after two other producers refused to come on board. Ishara shot the film in one go in less than a month in accordance with Kunnu's wishes. It was one of the cheapest films of its time and was completed on a budget of less than one lakh rupees. Kunnu went on to produce a few more of Ishara's films after this.[5]
