This song was not included in the film. The director, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, used a song from another film, "Aa Je Re Pardesi" ("Madhumati", 1958) instead of this bhajan. Some consider the inclusion of this Lata Mangeshkar song in the movie as the director's effort to reconcile with Lata after having recorded three songs by Vani Jayaram and none by Lata.
The flute in this song, composed by Vasant Desai and sung by Vani Jayaram, was played by Manohari Singh.[MR10]
