Love is life
This movie was Yash Chopra's second directorial venture in collaboration with Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor in the lead roles after Deewar (1975).

This movie was particularly noted for its magnificently melodious soundtrack; compositions by Khayyam won him the Filmfare Award for Best Music, while film lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi won the Best Lyricist Award for "Kabhi Kabhie Mere Dil Mein," the song which also got singer Mukesh, the Best Male Playback Singer award.

Yash Chopra shot this movie in Kashmir. All the cast stayed together as a family and contributed to every aspect of the film, and they even brought their families with them to Kashmir (they were used as extras in the wedding scenes). It was one of Chopra's happiest experiences and he described the production as a honeymoon.

Parveen Babi was Yash Chopra's first choice for the role opposite Rishi Kapoor.

Canadian/US singer Paul Anka sang his own version of the title song "Kabhie Kabhie"

Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh fell in love while shooting this film.

At the launch of the movie, the three lead men Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor all wore the same costume, Kurta-pajamas.

The film's producer, Gulshan Rai, was convinced it would never run. It went on to break all box-office records.
