Lyrics in Hindi

आप जैसा कोई मेरी ज़िंदगी में आये
तो बात बन जाये, हाँ हाँ बात बन जाये …

मैं इनसान हूँ फ़रिश्ता नहीं
डर है बहक न जाऊं कहीं
तन्हा दिल न सम्भलेगा, प्यार बिना ये तड़पेगा
आप सा कहाँ है दिल आप को ही पाये
तो बात बन जाये …

Song Trivia

Many s (including the film’s original s Kalyanji Anandji) opposed Feroz Khan hiring Biddu to score a solo song in the film. Many tried to stop this because they viewed Biddu as a outsider. After several discussions, Feroz Khan stuck to his choice.

Feroz Khan met Biddu and Nazia Hassan at a party hosted by a close friend in England in 1980 Nazias parents insisted Feroz listen to Nazia sing. Feroz did and was highly impressed. But Feroz had his eye on International star BIDDU to score a song for QURBANI. Biddu was reluctant to score music for a Indian film. It was with sincere persistance and Feroz telling Biddu to do it for his mom who lived in India.

The first initial song Biddu recorded for Qurbani was a Hindi version of a Boney M song. When Nazia Hassan and Zoheb Hassan heard it, they refused saying they didn’t want to sing a copy.They insisted they wanted a original song. A reluctant Biddu asked them what they had in mind. Thats when “Aap Jaisa Koi ” was born.

Feroz Khan’s wife Sundari appears in the song Aap Jaisa Koi. She is playing a guitar on stage.
