He said, "I remember that Mom shared an incident where a large crowd blocked Qutub Minar from all sides, and the shooting of Dil Ka Bhanwar Kare Pukar was halted midway. As Dev Anand Saab and Nutan Ji were superstars, a huge crowd had gathered to catch a glimpse. Unfortunately, only one phase of the exterior or interior location was shot but a replica of the monument was made at Mehboob Studio to finish the remaining part. That was the last song which was shot at Qutub Minar."
