In Hoshiyar veteran actor Pran had important major role and acted very well.
After the release of Hoshiyar later an song of Jeetendra and Meenakshi was adead to the film.
Meenakshi Sheshadri replaced Sri Devi in the film.
The title music of the movie Main Tere Liye (1988) was very similar to the song Dil Sangeet Ka Deewana.
Sridevi was offered a role in this film but she rejected it because it would have required her to wear revealing outfits. The role was then given to Meenakshi Sheshadri.
Jaya Pradha was also offered the role opposite Jeetendra but she declined due to the exposure required. She opted for the other role opposite Shatrughan instead.
