“The film was originally supposed to star famous Bollywood actors Kishore Kumar and Mehmood in the lead roles.3 One of the producers of the film, N.C. Sippy, had earlier served as Mehmood’s production manager. The character Babu Moshai was to be played by Mehmood. Hrishikesh was asked to meet Kishore Kumar to discuss the project. However, when Hrishikesh Mukherjee went to Kishore Kumar’s house, he was driven away by the gatekeeper due to a misunderstanding. Kishore Kumar (himself a Bengali) had done a stage show organized by another Bengali man, and he was involved in a fight with this man over money matters. He had instructed his gatekeeper to drive away this “Bengali”, if he ever visited the house. When Hrishikesh Mukherjee (another Bengali) went to Kishore Kumar’s house, the gatekeeper drove him away, mistaking him for the “Bengali” that Kishore Kumar had asked him to drive away. The incident hurt Hrishikesh Mukherjee so much, that he decided not to work with Kishore Kumar.3 Consequently, Mehmood had to leave the film as well, and new actors (Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan) were signed up for the film."
Maine tere liye hi saat rang ke sapne chune,
Sapne, surile sapne,
Kuch hansee ke, kuch gum ke,
Teri ankhon ke saye churaye rasili yaadon ne,
Maine tere liye hi saat rang ke….
Choti choti baaton ki hai yaadein badhi,
Bhoole nahin bithi hui ek choti ghadi,
Janam janam se, aankhen bichaaye, tere liye in rahon
Maine tere liye ….
Bhole bhale dil ko behlate rahe,
Tanhai mein tere khayalon ko sajate rahe,
Kabhi kabhi tho, aavaaz dekar, mujhko jagaya khwabon
Maine tere liye ….
