Trivia:
Dev Anand thought up the story for the film when he saw hippies and their fallen values in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Dev Anand tried convincing his children Suneil and Devina to play the younger roles of Prashant and Janice, but they were too shy and didn't want to.

The song "Dum Maaro Dum" was sampled in several songs and was also covered by many artists.

Mumtaz was offered the role of Dev Anand's sister but she insisted she play the role opposite Dev Anand. Everyone kept telling her that the film was about a brother and sister. Zeenat ended up with the better role, which made Mumtaz bitter.
