Quotes on the film
Rajesh Khanna disclosed in an interview,"I consider “Aakhri Khat” a memorable film of my initial days It was out and out a director's project and Chetan Anand, highly imaginative and sensitive director handled the film with expertise I still clearly remember how cinematographer Jal Mistry shot the song sequence, “Ab Na Ja” on me and Indrani Mukherjee in five to six close ups also picturising the natural panorama of the Himalayas with rare aesthetics and perfection My most challenging scene in “Aakhri Khat” was the last one where I am in a pensive mood in silence till I recognise my son, Bunty Chetan Anand used to wake me up with late night phone calls so that my face had the ideal pathos oriented look"
