Trivia:
Rajesh Khanna, who played Uttam Kumar's role, had the character's name changed from Anata Babu to Anand Babu, to make it more viewer friendly.

The film is a remake of the Bengali film Nishi Padma (1970), directed by Arabinda Mukherjee, who wrote screenplay for both the films based on the Bengali short story Hinger Kochuri by Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay.

Arabinda Mukherjee didn't know Hindi so he wrote the script in English. It was later translated by writer Ramesh Pant.

Rajesh Khanna is said to have watched Nishipadma 24 times before zeroing on the role of Anand Babu.
