Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was the debut film of Sanjay Dutt, the son of actors Sunil and Nargis Dutt. Nargis had died just five days before the release of the film and in the film's premiere show, Sunil and Sanjay Dutt had kept an empty seat between them as a mark of respect towards her.[MR27]
  • This was the only film in which Sunil Dutt directed his son Sanjay Dutt. He also appeared in an uncredited cameo in the film and played the role of Sanjay Dutt's father. Sunil Dutt worked with Sanjay Dutt in two other films and played his father in both - "Kshatriya" (1993) and "Munna Bhai M.B.B.S." (2003).[1][2]
  • Shammi Kapoor appeared in an uncredited cameo playing himself in this film.
  • This was actor Gulshan Grover's breakthrough film. Sanjay Dutt, who had studied with him at the Roshan Taneja School of Acting, helped him get a role in this film. Grover had debuted earlier in the film "Madhu Malti" (1978).[3][4]
  • Sunil Dutt's wife Nargis had been diagnosed with cancer during the making of this film and Dutt had had to travel to the US to get her treated. Director Raj Khosla had stepped in and shot the film during Sunil Dutt's absence.[5]
  • Sanjay Dutt was battling with his substance abuse problem when this film was being made. He had hid heroin in his shoes while travelling to Kashmir for the shooting of this film. In another incident, high on LSD, he had behaved strangely with Sunil Dutt, who had still not been able to figure out that his son was a drug addict. Sanjay Dutt finally approached his father for help when he had woken two days after he had been knocked out by a combination of cocaine and alcohol. Sunil Dutt got Sanjay admitted into the Breach Candy hospital for three weeks and later into a drug rehabilitation centre in the US, where he spent the next two years. As a result of his prolonged absence from Bombay, Sanjay Dutt lost several films during this period. Sunil Dutt shelved the film "Jab Pyar Hua" he had launched on Sanjay's birthday, July 29, 1981, as a gift to him. Gulshan Rai replaced him with Anil Kapoor in "Yudh" (1985). Producer Tito and director Tony shelved their film "Anthony" which they had launched with Sanjay Dutt.[6][7][8]
  • Sanjay Dutt and Tina Munim had started dating during the making of this film. They had even made plans of getting married despite Nargis' misgivings about it. Dutt was very protective about her and physically assaulted a man who had made an obscene remark about Tina during the shooting of this film. However, they broke up after three years because of the toll Dutt's drug abuse took on their relationship and because of his insecurity due to the rumours of Tina's affair with Rajesh Khanna.

    Song

  • Aa Dekhen Zara Kis Mein Kitna Hai Dum - The tune of the strings and horn section in this song was taken from Jeff Wayne's instrumental track "The Eve Of The War". The track was part of his debut album "Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds" (1978), which was a musical interpretation of H.G. Wells' science fiction novel "The War of the Worlds" (1898).[9]
  • Aa Dekhen Zara Kis Mein Kitna Hai Dum - The title of the film "Aa Dekhen Zara" (2009) was based on this song. The film also had two cover versions of this song.[10]
  • Kya Yahi Pyar Hai - R.D. Burman had used the this composition earlier for a non-film song "Jeyo Na Jeyo Na". Interestingly, while this song was sung by Kishore Kumar, "Jeyo Na Jeyo Na" was sung by his son Amit Kumar. R.D. Burman reused this tune again in 1990 for a Pujo album song "Eki Bhalobasa" sung by Asha Bhosle.[11][12]
