Khaike Paan Banaraswala was originally designed and composed for Dev Anand Rakhee starrer Banarasi Babu. Somehow things didn’t work out, and the song was incorporated in the movie Don. In the original situation too, the main lead was supposed to be wearing dhoti, which director vetoed. Even while the shoot of Amitabh Bachchan’s song, the idea was suggested but discarded by the writers Salim-Javed. The song required the male lead to chew paan, so Amitabh Bachchan chewed over 25 paans, leaving his tongue burnt. The singer Kishore Kumar too chewed paan while recording it, to give it an original flavour, Paan intended.
Shankar Mahadevan album "Breathless" reportedly, topped music charts for nearly ten weeks and went on to sell over 3,00,000 copies.
