Amitabh and Pran had a scene together in the police station where Amitabh had to kick a chair away from Pran, in a show of anger. Amitabh just could not demonstrate the necessary anger. He was close to Pran's song and called Pran uncle. In his biography Pran writes, "I knew what was happening inside him. So I told him "Don't think of me as your uncle. Think of me as the villain here. Forget the uncle and kick the chair" only then could he do the scene well enough. He was so respectful".

Mehhra had to rush to pran's house to plead with him, saying without him the film would not work as Amitabh as a hero was not a bankable box office proposition. Finally song was shot and Pran gave one one of the best performances of his career. "Yari Hai Iman Mera Yaar meri Zindagi" lipped by Pran made a history.
