Bitter hatred had always existed between two Rajput families, namely those of Bharat Singh and Prithviraj Singh, resulting in the death of Bharat's nephew. Years later, Prithviraj's son Dharamraj gets married to Sunaina, who gives birth to a baby boy named Deshraj. On Deshraj's 10th birthday, Prithviraj goes to make peace with Bharat and invites him for a birthday party, which Bharat attends, but there is no end to the animosity - which results in the death of Prithviraj, when his chauffeur, Chandu, is bribed and manipulated by Bharat and his men. Dharamraj is beside himself with anger, he poisons Chandu, and sends Deshraj to the U.S. to continue his studies and live in a safer atmosphere. Years later, Deshraj returns home, meets and falls in love with a young woman named Leela, who is none other than Chandu's daughter. Fearing for his son's life, Dharamraj proposes peace with Bharat and would like his son to marry Bharat's daughter, Padmini. When Deshraj refuses to marry Padmini, Dharamraj is beside himself with anger, he has Leela abducted and imprisoned. Deshraj must now make a choice - he can marry Padmini and ensure there is peace between the two families or alternatively he can elope with Leela and live a life full of fear and uncertainty, not knowing when they will be killed, and whether it will at the hands of Bharat or at the hands of Dharamraj himself.

Poonam Dhillon found Anil Kapoor very loud, obnoxious and full of himself. Anil in turn felt Poonam was extremely reserved and made the sets very intense.

The Boney M song "Daddy Cool" was sampled in "Doston Ki Haqeeqat"

The film was to be Anil Kapoor's official launch in a lead role. Thats why the opening title's read "Introducing Anil Kapoor". But Anil Kapoor went and signed Woh 7 Din on the side and quickly completed the film. He failed to report this to Sawaan Kumar Tak making him very angry when he discovered what happened.
