  • 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).[1][2]
  • Music director Pritam combined an original composition with the tunes of this song as well as the song "Duniya Mein Logon Ko Dhokha Kabhi Ho Jata Hai" ("Apna Desh", 1972) for the Hindi film song "Parda" ("Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai", 2010).[3][4]
