Cinematographer R D Mathur had to experiment with lighting to shoot the famous Sheesh Mahal setting of Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya. He tried painting the mirrors with wax to check the glare, which worked but also made the visuals dull. He then tried placing strips of cloth strategically to create bounced lighting.
There is a short distance between the oppression and justice of kings.
Bahar: You should be delighted that the king is honouring you with prizes and gifts.
Sangtaraash: Delighted? Only weak people show happiness. I was making a joke.

2004: The End Credits play the song 'Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya' and its 1960 end credits are adjacent to the 2004 (Technicians) credits.
The original version is in B/W and only one song 'Pyar kiya to darna kya...' was shot in color as most of the film (by the time color technology was available) was complete. This was at the end of almost 10 years that the film was being completed. However, the year 2004 re-release is re-mastered from the original B/W version to Color with Dolby Digital sound and some visual enhancements.
