There are strangers in the house.
This movie is a remake of the popular horror movie The Others (2001), starring Nicole Kidman.

Amitabh Bachchan dubbed his own lines for the Bengali version "Ora Kara", even though he has very little understanding of the language.

The romantic poetry dream sequence between Amitabh Bachchan and Dimple Kapadia is copied from Amitabh Bachchan's classic _Kabhi Kabhie (1976)_.

For the Nannies role, the makers had several actresses in mind, after signing on Moushumi Chatterjee, the director said "she was the perfect nanny, with the charm in her face".

Dimple Kapadia's dialogs were dubbed by Rupa Ganguly for the Bengali version Ora Kara.

The makers paid homage to Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra's most successful pairing, from the film Sholay (1975) by reprising a similar scene, Amitabh who plays the role of Frank and Dharmendra who plays the role of Virendra, Frank says "Nahi, Viru" and Viru responds "Magar Frank." In Sholay Amitabh's character is called Jai, so the dialogue is "Magar Jai". Amitabh Bachchan screen name was different whilst Dharmendra had the same screen name as he had in Sholay.
