Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was based on a Bengali novel of the same title by Vikramaditya.
  • Amjad Khan had initially been chosen to play the role that was played by Utpal Dutt in this film. He had even started shooting for the film. The actor met with an accident in 1976 while travelling by car to a shooting location for this film, along with his wife Shehla. The accident left Amjad Khan grievously injured with broken ribs, a ruptured lung and a fractured femur. This film was stalled and Utpal Dutt was brought on board to replace him. Khan recovered from his injuries but they took a toll on his health in the long term. The actor gained a lot of weight over the years and died of a heart attack when he was only 52 years old.[1]
  • It appears that some days after its release, this film was promoted with the Hindi title "Sabse Bada Juari". This was apparently done because the audiences were assuming, based on its English title, that it was an English language film.

    Song

  • Do Lafzon Ki Hai Dil Ki Kahani - The Italians lines in this song were sung and written by actor Sharad Kumar. Sharad Kumar had gained fame in the 1960s and 1970s performing Elvis Presley songs on stage. Originally from Calcutta, he had started his film career as an actor in the film "Paisa Ya Pyar" (1969).[2][3]
