Trivia

In the 1970s, producers Tony-Tito gave director Desh Mukherjee a car as a signing amount when his much-hyped multi-starrer Immaan Dharam was in the making. After the film sank at the box-office, the duo had second thoughts. One day, they waylaid Mukherjee who was driving past, and while Tony made conversation with him, Tito drove the car away - leaving the red-faced director stranded in the middle of the road with no car and no future.
