JEETE HAIN SHAAN SE FIRST MOVIE OF GOVINDA SANJAY DUTT
Director David Dhawan first collaborated with Govinda for the film, Taaqatwar (1989). He went on to work with the actor in 17 movies.
When launched in 1987 producer Bobby Raaj (anita raaj's brother) personally visited Govinda to secure dates as there were many joint scenes with Sunjay Dutt. Govinda would say yes and then cancel at the last minute or show up 6 hours after the shift started. This caused a 6 month delay of the film and led to Bobby raaj openly accusing Govinda of unprofessionalism.
Fight scene between Govinda and Sanjay Dutt in graveyard was inspired from fight scene between Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna in Amar Akbar Anthony 1977.Coincidentally Sanjay Dutt's character is called Amar.
