Dimple Kapadia was the original choice for the role played by Sharmila Tagore.

A funny incident occurred while shooting a jail scene with Shashi Kapoor. A hangman had to hang Shashi in the scene. The director ordered Shashi to make a painful face as though he was being choked. The first shot was not okay-ed. They had to do it again. This is when they realized 3 year old Saif Ali Khan was hitting the actor who was playing the hangman executioner. He wanted to know why he was hurting his uncle Shashi!
