Trivia Producer Harish Shah thrashed Manoj Kumar in his book. The distributor pleaded with Harish to delay his film Mere Jeevan Sathi and not release it with Shor. Rajesh was a super star in those days. The distributor agreed to give Harish the Bombay theatre Apsara to release his film provided he not release the film with Shor and release it the following week. Harish finally gave in and agreed. On the weekend Mere Jeevan Saathi released ,Harish went to visit Apsara theatre and saw the entire tickets were bought and now being sold for a cheaper low rate of rupees 25 by the black ticket scalper boys. This way the collections of Mere Jeevan Saathi would be low. Harish asked them why they were doing this to sabotage his film. They told Harish they were paid to do this. Upon further asking he found out it was Manoj Kumar who was playing this game. Manoj did not want competition from a Rajesh Khanna film. Manoj had bought the tickets and now selling it at a bad rate. A few months later Manoj feeling guilty sent a offer to act in Harish Shah's future film. Harish gave him a piece of his mind and declined the offer. See more »
