Raj Kapoor was the first Hindi film actor to slap an actress (Nargis) on screen in this film.
After the superhit "Barsaat", Raj Kapoor took Shailendra to writer Khwaja Ahmed Abbas for a story narration session of his new film "Awaara". After the session when asked about the story, Shailendra said "Awaara Hai, Lekin Gardish Mein Aasman Ka Taara Hai". This became the all time classic title song of the film later.
