Trivia for Jab Jab Phool Khile:-
Brij Katyal's script was turned down by three top producers, including Sholay (1975) creator N.N. Sippy. However, director Suraj Prakash felt it was a beautiful story and accepted it. It went on to become his greatest hit film.This was Suraj Prakash's first colour film. As research for his role as Raja, Shashi Kapoor would spend days with the boatmen in Kashmir to study their lifestyle. Sometimes, he would even eat food with them.
The sequence of Raja pulling his beloved into the train was shot in Bombay Central Train Station. Director Suraj Prakash gave explicit instructions on how and when to pull Nanda into the train. But when the time came, Kapoor followed those directions so well that there were only a few feet left for the platform to end when he pulled her in! Prakash claims the incident was so hair-raising that he'd shut his eyes, convinced that Nanda's end had come.While on location in Srinagar, a Lieutenant Colonel from Maharashtra became smitten with Nanda and asked Suraj Prakash to forward a marriage proposal to her mother. Nothing came of it, however.
Director Suraj Prakash and actor Shashi Kapoor made a bet: Prakash said the film would run for 25 weeks and Kapoor, eight weeks. Whoever proved to be right would present the other a suit stitched at Burlington's. Prakash won the bet and presented the suit to Kapoor; however, each proved to be wrong, as the film ran for 50 weeks and celebrated its golden jubilee.
