Trivia:
Anil Kapoor auditioned for the small role of Sanjay Dutt's friend in the latter's debut film Rocky, in struggling days. He was rejected. Gulshan Grover bagged the role afterwards.

Nargis (Acclaimed actress, Actor Sanjay Dutt's Mother and Director Sunil Dutt's wife) underwent treatment for the cancer of the pancreas at Solane Kettering Hospital in New York (USA). When her condition deteriorated upon her return to India, she was admitted to Breach Candy Hospital in Bombay. She sank into a coma on May 2, 1981 and breathed her last on Sunday, May 3, 1981. Her absence at the premiere of this film on May 7, 1981, where one seat was kept vacant for her, was an unforgettable event. Strangely, her presence was felt even more in her absence.

The music in the song "Aa Dekhen Zara, Kis Mein Kitna Hain Dum" is a reworking of Jeff Wayne's "World of the Worlds".

Sanjay Dutt played his first lead role in this movie which was directed by his father.
