The shooting for the movie was being conducted at comedian-actor Mehmood' farmhouse. One day Mehmood's son greeted the actor with a 'hello' and went his way. Khanna reportedly did not like this incident as he thought he was insulted. Hence, being upset by it, he started showing late on the sets and made all the stars wait, including Mehmood, who was also the director of the project.
This made Mehmood so angry at Khanna that he lost his calm and slapped the actor and asked him to complete the shoot as he had already paid him for the movie. Shooting went well, and Janta Hawaldar emerged to be a massive hit after releasing in theatres. Many superstars were reported to throw tantrums on sets that would upset the producers and filmmakers in old age.
The shootings would get delayed because of the 'starry' attitude, but in Khanna's career, this attitude made him pay a high cost as it affected his career terribly.
