Trivia


 

    Album

  • Director Muzaffar Ali had initially engaged Jaidev to compose music for this film. In fact, Jaidev had already composed a few songs for the film, when differences, ostensibly money-related, developed between the two. It was then that Muzaffar Ali brought Khayyam on board. If this change had not happened, it would have been Lata Mangeshkar singing for Rekha in this film, not Asha Bhosle.[MR4]
  • This film helped singer Asha Bhosle resurrect her career in a big way. A lot of credit for this goes to music director Khayyam who asked Asha Bhosle to sing the songs at a scale lower than what she was used to. Asha Bhosle was sceptical to start with but was very impressed when she heard the end result and ended up winning the National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer for her singing in this film.[1]
  • This 1981 film was based on the novel "Umrao Jaan Ada" by Mirza Mohammad Hadi Ruswa.

    Song

  • Jab Bhi Milti Hai - This song has the same tune as another song in the film "Justju Jiski Thi".
  • Jhoola Kinne Daala - The film had another version of this song sung by Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan. However, it was not included in the audio release.[2]
