Later filming the bits, Rajesh Khanna is seen speaking to a journalist about his experience of shooting the song. “I liked this. It was better than running around trees. It’s running around rocks,” Khanna, hailed as one of the biggest romantic heroes ever in Hindi cinema, had a tongue-in-cheek reply. When asked if he had problems with multiple takes before getting the right shot, the actor said, “Not at all. I liked this part. I liked doing it again and again.”
