Movie Connection(s):
Remade as: Ezhuthatha Sattangal (Tamil)
The film is a remake of the Malayalam movie Aarambham (1982), which was also directed by Joshiy.

Rajesh Khanna would make Dharmendra wait endlessly on the sets. Then when Khanna would arrive he would excuse himself to meet visitors. This infuriated Dharmendra to no extent.

The film was remade in Tamil as Ezhuthatha Sattangal (1984).

Jayapradha's voice is dubbed in the film.
