Sirf Tum was a remake of 1996 Tamil movie 'Kadhal Kottai', and was directed by Agathian. The music of the film was composed by Nadeem-Shravan. The songs 'Pehli Pehli Baar Mohabbat Ki Hai' and 'Dilbar' became chartbusters.
The song Dilbar has remained popular over the years. It was sung by Alka Yagnik and picturised on Sushmita Sen and Sanjay Kapoor. It was remade for the film Satyamev Jayate (2018), where it was sung by Neha Kakkar and also became a chart buster like the original song. Nora Fatehi featured in the new song.
Sushmita spoke about the remake, saying that she was pleased with the new version and mentioned that she was glad Nora Fatehi didn't try to copy her. Sushmita added that she was happy the new generation was still enjoying the old song.
