When Man ji came to narrate the idea to me .. and told me the Title .. I thought he had lost it…at a time in the 70’s when film titles revolved around Behen Bhabhi and Beti , this one was so out of place…BUT…It is reported that it did a business of 7.25 cr at that time .. inflation adjusted it crosses collections of Bahubali 2…say the sayers who do calculations But fact is it did massive business…did 25 weeks in 25 theatres in Mumbai alone…or so they say…Doesn’t happen now… gone are those days !!
