The making of the film "Zanjeer" was beset with problems. Pran who played the Pathan was reluctant to sing or dance . On the very first day he threatened to walk out of the floor. Mehhra had to rush to pran's house to plead with him, saying without him the film would not work as Amitabh as a hero was not a bankable box office proposition. Finally song was shot and Pran gave one one of the best performances of his career. "Yari Hai Iman Mera Yaar meri Zindagi" lipped by Pran made a history. See more
