RD Burman was inspired by Pink Floyd's song "Shine Your Diamond". He took the opening music of the song and composed the Bengali song "TUMI KOTO JE DURE KOTHA JE HARIE GELE". He later used the tune of that Bengali song and composed the background music of Dimple Kapadia swimming in Saagar. Aaja Mere Jaan was not a movie planned for RD Burman. It was Anuradha Paudwal which had given him the offer to compose an album for her featuring 8 duets .There were 4 singers selected to accompany her.There were SP Balasubramaniam , Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh and Danny Denzongpa. However, then the company sat on those songs and they were not released. One of the songs composed was "AAJA MERI JAAN" which was used as the title song for the movie. 20 years later, Bhushan Kumar got DJ Phukan to compose a new version of the song with singer Mauli. This song was in the movie I Love New Year.
