Trivia


 

    Album

  • This is considered to be the first Hindi film to do a business of more than Rs. 100 crores worldwide. Other than India, it did very well in the Soviet Union and China.[1]
  • This film was remade in Telugu as "Disco King" (1984) and in Tamil as "Paadum Vaanampadi" (1985).
  • Two songs in this film, "I Am A Disco Dancer" and "Yaad Aa Raha Hai", were re-created for another film featuring Mithun Chakraborty, "Golmaal 3" (2010). The producer and director of this film, B. Subhash, was unhappy that these songs were used without his permission and had planned to sue the producers of "Golmaal 3" (2010).[2][3]
  • During the making of the film "Taqdeer Ka Badshah" (1982), director B. Subhash had noticed that Mithun Chakraborty was dejected because a recent release of his had failed at the box office. To cheer him up, Subhash had promised the actor that he would make a film with him that would make him a star. He fulfilled his promise when he turned producer with this film.[4][5]
  • Rajesh Khanna agreed to make a small appearance in this film without charging a fee. He did so to return a favour he owed to the film's producer, director B. Subhash. It was Subhash who had recommended Rajesh Khanna to the producers of "Thodisi Bewafaii" (1980) when they were considering Sanjeev Kumar for the film's lead role. The success of "Thodisi Bewafaii" helped stabilise Khanna's career at a time when his films were bombing one after the other.[6][7]
  • This was Karan Razdan's acting debut in Hindi films.

    Song

  • I Am A Disco Dancer - This was singer Vijay Benedict's first hit Hindi film song. He had debuted earlier with a song in the film "Des Pardes" (1978).[8]
  • I Am A Disco Dancer - When lyricist Anjaan had got stuck while writing this song, director B. Subhash had asked him to take a break. Subhash had then chanced upon a book in which Michael Jackson's mother had said that her son could dance before he could walk and sing before he could talk. Subhash told Anjaan that this was what he wanted the song to convey. It was based on this brief that Anjaan came up with the lyrics of the song's first antara.[9]
  • I Am A Disco Dancer - The prelude of this song was adapted from the song "The Love Stealers" (1982) by Saint Tropez.[10]
  • Krishna Dharti Pe Aaja Tu - This song was an adaptation of The Tielman Brothers' song "Jesus" (1979).[11]
  • Krishna Dharti Pe Aaja Tu - This was Nandu Bhende's debut Hindi film song.
  • Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Aaja Aaja Aaja - This song was an adaptation of the 1980 hit "T'es Ok" by the pop duo Ottawan. The French hit was also released in English as "You're OK".[12]
  • Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Aaja Aaja Aaja - This song was used in the Hollywood comedy "Don't Mess With The Zohan" (2008) starring Adam Sandler.[13]
  • Auva Auva Koi Yahaan Aha Naache Naache - This song was an adaptation of the 1979 hit single "Video Killed The Radio Star" by the one-hit wonder, The Buggles.[14]
  • Auva Auva Koi Yahaan Aha Naache Naache - This song earned Usha Uthup the ire of the West Bengal Left leader Jatin Chakraborty, who accused her of "apasanskriti" (bad culture or decadence). She was banned from performing in state-sponsored events and halls in the state. Usha Uthup sued the state of West Bengal for discrimination. She went on to win the case and the ban was lifted.[15]
