The film has multiple references in Vikram Seth's 1993 novel A Suitable Boy, in which people watching it burst into tears and people who can't get tickets start a riot.
Actor Manoj Kumar asked director Raj Khosla to accompany him to a rerun of the show, many years after the film's release.
The film became a Golden era hit and further established Dilip Kumar as the "King of Tragedy".
The film was remade in Tamil as Neengadha Ninaivu (1963).
