On the night of the premiere of " Mashaal" , Anil Kapoor signed 2 movies. The first one was " Janbaaz" and the second one " Meri Jung". Yash Chopra had put in a good word to Feroz Khan and Subhash Ghai about new comer Anil Kapoor.

DJ Shadow and Music producer Dan The Automator released a album titled Bombay The Hardway Vol.2 , Electric Vindaloo. This album had Janbaaz's background music from several scenes.

Feroz Khan initially wanted Sri Devi for the lead role. Sri Devi refused and Feroz Khan then developed the role of " Seema" for her.

Remake of Duel In The Sun.

Feroz Khan's voice can be heard as the Horse Racing commentator during the racing scene .

Janbaaz was a title Feroz Khan got from Salim Khan. When the Salim-Javed team broke up, it was Feroz Khan who contacted Salim, took him for a month to London and then to his farm in Bangalore. Salim wrote a script titled Janbaaz for FK which was to be made in English and Hindi. After starting it, Feroz put it on the back burner and made the Anil Kapoor-Dimple starrer Janbaaz instead. The script was different but he retained the title. Salim Khan was uncomfortable with the sexual and bold content of the original script. Both parted ways after several months.

Feroz Khan flew in several international dancers and performers for the night club sequence and for the song Pyar Do Pyar Lo.
