The famous funk-rock song "Ae Naujawan Hai Sab" sung by Asha Bhosle became the basis for The Black Eyed Peas' hit song "Don't Phunk with My Heart" in 2005.

Feroz Khan's baby daughter Laila appears in film, and ironically plays the role of Feroz Khan's baby son.

Feroz Khan was very grateful to Mumtaz, quoting "When I was a nobody Mumtaz even agreed to work as my heroine in my very first film as an independent producer-director in Apradh".
