Talking about the song, Amitabh, who got emotional and nostalgic crooning the track, had told The Times Of India, “This is one of my all-time favourite songs. It is from one of my favourite classic movies ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’, starring Guru Dutt and Waheeda Rehman. Guru Dutt also directed the film. This wonderful movie didn’t work when it first released, but today, it is considered an iconic film. I will never forget the way the song was shot, where Guru Dutt saab is standing on stage and a stream of light is flowing in from above. There is a reference to this song in ‘102 Not Out’, so the makers were keen that I actually sing it for that particular scene.” 102 Not Out is bankrolled by SPF Films India and Treetop Entertainment and distributed by Sony Pictures.
