Trivia

To give Amitabh Bachchan the gangster look, his mouth was stuffed with cotton wool underneath both cheeks, as was Marlon Brando's in The Godfather (1972)
There was a bedroom scene in the original script after Amitabh has an argument with his mother he goes to Madhavi for comfort. Amitabh Bachchan didn't feel comfortable about it and when he asked the director to alter the scene it was removed.
Amitabh received tremendous flak initially for his voice but the role remains one of his most memorable characters, till today Amitabh is mostly imitated by his act in this film.
Danny Denzongpa suggested the antagonist screen name 'Kaancha Cheena' to director Mukul Anand.
The song Jhumma Chumma De De was actually planned for this film but the director felt it would not go with Amitabh's role and hence the song was replaced by Ali Baba and Jhumma Chumma was used in HUM.
Tinnu Anand had to shave his head bald to make the age difference between him and Amitabh Bachchan, as he played the role of his uncle.
