Trivia

Shakti Samantha wanted to shoot the film on a limited budget. He took just 10 people from the unit to Paris. The hairdresser also appeared in some shots. Everywhere they shot people would stop and stare at Shammi Kapoor. They would ask and inquire who he was. Everyone had predicted the film to be a massive hit. They were wrong . The film was a disappointment for Shakti Samantha . He would blame Shammi Kapoor's increasing weight gain for this. He was slowly losing his charm of a leading man. See more »
