Trivia Of The Day
This classic Salil Chowdhury song almost did not happen. Another song in the film was accidentally given to both Yogesh and Gulzar. Eventually Yogesh's lyrics - "Naa ro ankhiyaaan" - remained unused since Hrishikesh Mukherjee had already planned to shoot the song with Gulzar's lyrics. To compensate Yogesh, the film makers decided to come up with a situation for a new song. It is in these circumstances that Yogesh wrote the lyrics to the film's most memorable song.
