In 1971, a dispute occurred at one cinema in Dadar, when a Marathi movie was replaced with Tere Mere Sapne.[4]

Unlike Anand's previous "Golden" hits, Tere Mere Sapne did not do as well at the box office.[5] However, it included one of Mamatz's best performances[6] and has been included in Anand's top 10 films.[7]
