The film is based on a real event which took place in Amritsar.

The film's music was by classical musician Ali Akbar Khan. Jaidev, who was a student of Khan from Lucknow, started his career by assisting Khan in film music. He later went on to become a noted music director.

Lata Mangeshkar did not charge a fee for singing the title song "Har Kahin Pe Shaadmani", out of respect for the sarod maestro.

The background score of the film was done with the help of Hindustani classical musicians Pandit Ravi Shankar and Pannalal Ghosh.
