When Shakti Samanta narrated the story line of "Anuraag" to his wife Nilima and son Ashim, they straightaway rejected for it not catering to mass appeal. He kept quiet and went on to make the film. When they saw the rushes, they were overwhelmed to see how the film has turned out. Shakti Samanta went on to win filmfare best film award for "Anuraag".
