    During the shooting of 'Bobby', Pran almost got drowned in a river. Fortunately, he managed to hold a rock and save himself. For this movie, Pran was given a signing amount of Re. 1, as Raj Kapoor couldn't afford the actor's fee.

    The Goan tune for "Na Maangoon Sona Chandi" was first heard in background music of RK films' "Awaara." It was played just before the song "Dum Bhar Jo Udhar Munh Phere".

    Actress Sadhana was approached by Raj Kapoor to play Rishi Kapoor's mother. But though she was at the end of her lead actress career, she declined this (and all subsequent similar) role as she wanted to move away from her audience with the same screen goddess image with which she ruled the industry. The role eventually went to Sonia Sahni.

    The most unusual aspect of Bobby is its device of centerstaging India's underrepresented minority Christian community. Jack Briganza's endearing personality combines a robust working-class sensibility along with his identity as a Goan Christian. However, cultural differences are flattened and diminish in importance as the central conflict condenses along class lines. Differences between the Christian community and Raja's Hindu background remain buried.Romantic love transgresses class.

    Bobby is curiously ambivalent .Nath's authority and state laws are brought to bear on Raja for daring to marry Bobby when they are still minors. Yet Nath goes on to arrange the marriage between Raja and Alka, a business colleague's daughter who is a minor like Raja, and mentally a child. It is through Alka's childlike prattle that Raja discovers he is a pawn in a business deal. The prohibition of the marriage of minors is used only to consolidate parental authority against the minors' will.

    In the library Bobby approaches Dimple saying that his book is exchanged with her and he would like to have it back. Dimple returns the book and asks for hers to be given back too. the goof here is: Rishi however is seen to return the same book that Dimple gives to her, which means eventually he gives back his own book only.
