This movie was remade in Tamil as Sandhippu (1983) with Sivaji Ganesan and Prabhu Ganesan, and in Telugu as Trimurtulu (1987) with Daggubati Venkatesh.

One of the songs in the film sung by Mohammed Rafi, "John Johny Janardan" has cameo appearances by many actors playing themselves. The appearances include Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Dharmendra, Rajesh Khanna, Rakesh Roshan, Vijay Arora, Waheeda Rehman, Sharmila Tagore, Mala Sinha, Bindu, Simi Garewal and Simple Kapadia. According to eminent film expert Rajesh Subramanian, the opening line was composed by Manmohan Desai himself. The tune was inspired from a catchy line from the song Aksar koi ladka from Bobby. The star studded song was shot at R K Studios and the shooting spanned for one week. Showman Raj Kapoor played an integral part in the song and during the shooting. The one week shoot was a gala event.

Manmohan Desai had originally wanted the trio of "Amar Akbar Anthony" to play the lead roles once again in this film. However, Shatrughan Sinha replaced Vinod Khanna after the latter took a break from films
