After working with Kumar in ‘Jaanwar’ (1999), Darshan had pitted Kumar for the first time against the veteran superstar Big B. Besides the two, the film also stars actresses Karisma Kapoor, Juhi Chawla and Rakhee in pivotal roles. The soundtrack of the movie, which was composed by Nadeem-Shravan, had become a chartbuster at that time.

At that time, the film enjoyed a 100-day theatrical run in Mumbai and several other cities in India, and also met with great success in the international territories. It was a big thing in that era which was beyond the box-office collections and the 100-200 crore clubs. The movie still gets a great viewership on television.
