Salim Javed had seen a play of Raj Babbar and were very impressed with Raj Babbar's performance. They put in a good word to Ramesh Sippy and producer's Mushir Riaz, about Raj Babbar's talent. This made the producer's of Shakti to sign Raj Babbar as Dilip Kumar's son in Shakti. The distributors were not very happy with this decision. The distributors told the producers of the film that if Amitabh Bachchan was to play Dilip Kumar's son , the film would be sold for a lot more money. Mushir Riaz decided to drop Raj Babbar from the film and sign Amitabh. This would be the second time Rah Babbar was replaced in a Amitabh Bachchan film ( The first being Namak Halaal, Shashi Kapoor's role) See more »

Dilip kumar is an honest cop who declines to pay the ransom to free his child who gets away free any way. The child grows up to be Amithabh Bachchan who has this love-hate relationship with his father. Actually advertised as an action movie at the time of release, this is a very intense and well executed emotional drama. One of the finest performance by the bollywood superstar of all time, Amitabh where he is able to display all colors of emotion, yet appears to be very restrained. Dilip Kumar gives a matching performance too. A visual delight! Simply one of the best bollywood movie of all time.
