Trivia:
It is noteworthy that this movie was heavily referenced in Anurag Kashyap's crime film Gangs of Wasseypur (2012).

The soundtrack for this movie is credited for bringing the three legends of Indian film music K. J. Yesudas, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar together in a single song "Mohabbat Bade Kaam Ki Cheez Hai".

This movie was remade in Tamil by Rajnikanth as 'Mr. Bharath' with Satyaraj donning Sanjeev Kumar's role. It had also previously inspired the Kamal Hassan starrer, 'Kadal Meenkal' and the Malayalam movie 'Meen' starring Madhu and Jayan.

Although Sanjeev Kumar played the father, he was actually several months younger than Shashi Kapoor, who played his son.

"Dilip Kumar" was originally offered the role of R.K Gupta but turned it down.
