Trivia:
This film marked the Bollywood debut of Telugu director E. V. V. Satyanarayana and remained his first and only directorial in Hindi.

Rekha did the voice-overs for both Soundarya and Jayasudha.

Pooja Batra was offered the role opposite Amitabh Bachchan, but she declined as she felt there wasn't much scope in the role and she had done a similar role in Virasat.

The makers were toying with the idea of casting real life father and son Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan in principal roles.

This movie is the Hindi remake of the blockbuster Tamil film Suryavamsam (1997), starring Sarath Kumar and Devayani.
