after giving hits like Ankush 1986 and Prathughaat 1987 N Chandra had a script ready but wasn't finding a hero that's when Boney Kapoor asked him to cast Anil Kapoor,but N Chandra wasn't keen to cast him as Anil Kapoor was very busy those days,Boney Kapoor asked N Chandra to just narrate the script to Anil Kapoor ,Anil Kapoor liked role of Munna but he said he cant give him dates for at least two years and N Chandra wasn't ready for it ,Boney Kapoor then stepped in and said to N Chandra you can keep your crew ready which ever shoot of Anil Kapoor gets canceled the date will be yours so whenever Anil Kapoor's shoot would get canceled N Chandra would rush to the sets and start shooting for Tezaab and Anil Kapoor completed the film much before films he started before Tezaab.
The composer duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal wanted to use the Marathi song "Jawa Navin Popat Ha" in Tezaab, but they soon found out that it had already been used in one of Chunky's films, Paap Ki Duniya (1988) titled "Main Tera Tota Tu Meri Maina".

Mandakini claimed that N Chandra offered her the film but she declined. She stated there were too many actors in the film so she knew it would be a small role.
