R.D. Burman developed the tune of this song from a cue in the background score of the film "Jewel Thief" (1967). The cue was used in the scene in which Dev Anand's character visits Helen's apartment after the song "Baithe Hain Kya Uske Paas". R.D. Burman had assisted his father S.D. Burman in scoring the music of "Jewel Thief" (1967). He used this cue again for the mukhda of the song "Tum Jaison Ko To Paayal Mein Baandh Loon" ("Garam Masala", 1972).
