  • Lata Mangeshkar won the first Filmfare Award for Best Playback Singer for this song. This was the first year of this award category. In fact, this award category was instituted when Lata boycotted the previous year's Filmfare Awards function and demanded for a separate award for singers. Till this song, Filmfare only awarded music directors in the music category.[MR3]
  • Salil Chowdhury used his background score for "Jagte Raho" (1956) in the opening bars of this song.[MR7]
  • The flutes in this Salil Chowdhury song were played by Sumant Raj and Tribhuvan.[MR10]
