It was Shakti Kapoor's first film.

Shabana Azmi was a relative newcomer at the time and was not cast opposite Dharmendra. Her then boy friend Uday Chandra (Dhruv) played the romantic lead opposite her. Hema malini made a guest appearance as Dharmendra's love interest. Shabana has played Dharmendra's love interest only once, in the 1987 film Mardonwaali Baat.
