Laxmikant had asked R.D. Burman to sing this song but ended up singing it himself when Burman refused.
Amitabh Bachchan had a visible white bandage on his head when this song was scheduled to be shot. The bandage was to patch up an injury Amitabh had suffered while shooting the song "Mach Gaya Shor Saari Nagri Re" ("Khud-Daar", 1982) earlier that day. The actor had hidden the bandage by having the makeup artists paint it black and by pulling down the wig he was wearing in this song lower than normal.
