    This movie was made in two versions - an English version in collaboration with Pearl S. Buck and directed by Ted Danielewski to introduce Dev Anand to western audiences and of course the Hindi version directed by Dev Anand's younger brother Vijay Anand.

    Vijay Anand was horrified when he read the script and thought it would ruin the image of the country abroad. He refused twice to direct the film. It was only on the third attempt by Dev Anand that he agreed.

    "Piya Tose Naina Laage Re" was a long and tough song to compose and arrange. Vijay Anand suggested Sachin Dev Burman to compose each stanza of it as a separate song, as that was the way he intended to picturise the song in the film.

    Composer Sachin Dev Burman fell seriously ill during this film and even requested Dev Anand to engage some other composer for the film. But Dev Anand stood firm to his side and said that he would wait till Dada Burman is fit again. Once cured, the masterpiece compositions started to flow; the first song recorded was the evergreen "Gaata Rahe Mera Dil".

    Almost entire film industry attended the primere.Everybody was so shocked by the unconventional theme, that no person went to director Vijay Anand to congratulate for his work, leaving him heartbroken. The film opened to full houses, but barring a few circuits,the collections dipped substantially because audience couldn't understand the ending. It picked up again slowly once they understood it. It went on to become official entry for the oscars and also won 7 filmfare awards.

    Initially, Vyjantimala was Vijay Anand's choice for the role of Rosie. But she was replaced by Waheeda Rahman because of the single reason that the former would look rather chubby as the counter-part slim Dev Anand. Waheeda enacted the role of Rosie with impeccable justice. Besides, her dancing calibre (Vyjantimala too is a skilled dancer) added to her brilliant performances. Her emotions as a helpless wife, stage-performer, as a lover and finally feeling of pity have been wonderfully portrayed
