This was to be Anil Kapoor's official launch as leading man in Bollywood. That's why the opening titles read "Introducing Anil Kapoor". But Anil Kapoor went and signed Woh 7 Din on the side and quickly completed the film. He failed to report this to Sawaan Kumar Tak, making him very angry when he discovered what happened. Anil also did not tell Saawan Kumar Tak that he had done a film titled Kahan Kahan Se Guzar Gaya, 2 years prior. Since that film was completed and stuck not being released, Anil signed another film titled Rachna. Again, Anil refused to tell Sawaan Kumar Tak about this. Sawaan was made to believe Anil Kapoor would only be doing his film.[1]



All the songs[2] were composed by Usha Khanna and lyrics were penned by Saawan Kumar.

The songs "Saath Jiyenge Saath Marenge" and "Ho Gaye Deewane Tumko Dekhkar" were very popular songs during those days.
