  • The interludes in this Shankar - Jaikishan song are a straight lift from the Arabic song "Ala Baladi El Mahboub" sung by the famous Egyptian singer, Umm Kulthum.[MR4]
  • The elaborate set built for this song was the first ever set built in RK Studios and took more than three months to complete. The song is also one of the earliest "dream sequence" songs in Hindi films. Another first, according to Shankar - Jaikishan, was the use of a 100 piece orchestra.[MR10]
