For a rain scene the Mustang changes to another unidentified American car, seems to be the same car from Fifty Fifty

The green Caddy was owned by Miss Nimmi and for some reason the car ended up in Meerut with a film financier/destributor. This was in mid/late 50s. This gentleman belonged to perhaps the wealthiest family in Meerut and had many businesses in Meerut , Delhi and Bombay. This car was in Meerut and I have seen it taken care of along with many fine cars the family owned. My brother was in the Auto insurance business and showed me the papers showing ownership of the car - Miss Nawab Begum. The car is a 1947 model and may have belonged to some princely state or wealthy owner prior to ownership of Miss Nimmi . This story throws some light on the background of this magnificent car. In Meerut, next to our home was a auto workshop that took care of this family's cars. I was about 14 years old, and very interested in cars. I saw this Caddy at close quarters - it was of course LHD , .a Flathead V8 , two speed automatic, and a working AM radio.

I have made an observation - we saw a lovely metallic grey green Cadillac, Nimmi's personal car in the film Aan. It was discussed many times later too elsewhere on the forum. In the film Pehli Jhalak we see an identical car, including details like the twin shikaar lights, AA badge on the side of the grille, and marker poles on both fenders. It has to be the same car, and now we know the registration was BMZ. I'm told the car was sold to Delhi in the 70s, current fate unknown. It was also seen in Humdard
