Aas Paas is a 1981 Bollywood romantic film directed by J. Om Prakash and starring Dharmendra, Hema Malini and Prem Chopra. The music was by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. The film begins with a dedication to the late singer Mohammed Rafi, announcing that his last recorded song was for this film.[1]

Director-producer J. Om Prakash included in Aas Paas (1981) another brief "Lucky Mascot"[2] screen appearance of his grandson — future Hindi film superstar actor Hrithik Roshan, then age 7 — as the (credited) boy dancing in the song "Shehar Main Charcha Hai" who winks at Hema Malini and passes her a love note from Dharmendra.


Arun meets Seema by accident and they are attracted to each other. But Seema has a questionable background, which creates doubts in the minds of Arun and his mother.

Arun is involved in an accident, and everyone believes that he is dead. Seema is devastated and takes to alcohol, singing and dancing in a bar, and is raped. Arun returns. Seema is overjoyed to see him but hesitant to tell him about what had occurred.

Arun takes Seema to his home and introduces her to his family, namely his mom, his sister, Priti, and his brother-in-law, Prem. Seema is stunned and shocked when she sees Prem — she recognizes him as the man who raped her. Seema must decide to keep this terrible secret to herself and get married to Arun or simply disappear from his life altogether
