Veteran actor Raj Kumar played the role of a sculptor in this film while Waheeda Rehman was in a double role. Played the character of both the births. There is an anecdote related to the shooting of this film. Raj Kumar had to wear jewelery in the film. Very stubborn and known for doing films on his own terms, Raj Kumar got angry when he noticed that the jewelery he was wearing was fake. Raj Kumar told the film makers that if I wear it, otherwise I will not shoot if I don’t wear real jewellery.
The producers and directors bowed down to this insistence of Raj Kumar. The shooting of the film was stalled till the real jewelry arrived, because in those days everything was not available all the time. Well the makers ordered the original jewelery and Raj Kumar wore it with full gusto and gave a shot. In this way the shooting of the film progressed.
