Rajesh Khanna said in an interview,"Though "Aakhri Khat" is my first film, I received my first break as a leading actor in Ravindra Dave's, "Raaz" in 1967. My heroine was Babita, already a popular actress then. Though I had lots of confidence, I was shy in facing the camera initially. In my first three shots, I had to perform with stress on my body language and dialogue delivery. Though I was right with my dialogues, my movements were not up to the mark. Ravindra Dave explained me my scenes and movements very clearly correcting my way of walking.Also it was based on double role and was a film much ahead of its time. There are two Rajesh Khanna. "
Despite, this being Rajesh Khanna's second movie, it is actually the one he and Babita make their debut in. (It was released after Akhri Khat). Even though it flopped at boxoffice during its release this film is regarded as a classic movie of Rajesh Khanna........
