Trivia:
This, like Naya Daur (1957), was a controversial story which had no takers, until B.R. Chopra heard the tale and converted it into a hit film.

When she heard the script, Vyjayanthimala was completely bowled over and indicated her acceptance of the role by giving B.R. Chopra a huge tray full of coins.
