Trivia:
The story for 'Hare Rama Hare Krishna' actually came to Dev Anand's mind when he saw hippies and their fallen values in Kathmandu, Nepal where he was on a visit after protests against his previous film 'Prem Pujari' in Calcutta.

The movie dealt with the decadence of the Hippie culture. It aimed to have an anti-drug message and also depicts some problems associated with Westernization such as divorce. its loosely based on the 1968 movie 'Psych-Out'.

This movie is recognised as the spark that catapulted Zeenat Aman's career into stardom, causing her to be looked upon as a sex symbol, and won her several awards and accolades.

One of several scenes shot in Nepal takes place in a rug factory, with many locals used as extras. The footage can be viewed as a sort of ethnic documentary on Nepalese culture and industry.

Rappers Method Man and Red Man sampled the song Dum Maaro Dum for their song "Whats happenin".
