The hook lyrics of this song were dummy lyrics used by Laxmikant - Pyarelal to compose the Koli-folk-inspired tune. Director N. Chandra liked it so much that he insisted that the dummy lyrics be included in the song. In fact, it was Chandra's idea to use this Koli tune.
Several elements in this song sequence were inspired by the opening song of the film "Streets of Fire" (1984) - "Nowhere Fast".
This song was recreated by music director Sandeep Shirodkar for the film "Baaghi 2" (2018). The recreated version was sung by Palak Muchhal.
Choreographer Saroj Khan came up with the steps of Madhuri Dixit's breakthrough dance performance in this song in just 20 minutes. The last ever Hindi film song she choreographed for was also performed by Madhuri - "Tabaah Ho Gaye" ("Kalank", 2019). Saroj Khan died of a cardiac arrest in July 2020.
