Pyar Ki Kahani (English: The Story of Love) is a 1971 Bollywood romantic drama film directed by Ravikant Nagaich. It is a remake of the popular Tamil film Kai Koduttha Dheivam starring Sivaji Ganesan and Savitri. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan and Tanuja. According to an interview given by Amitabh bachchan at Koffee with Karan, the lead role was initially given to Jeetendra, but because of the film industry's imposed limit of maximum of 6 films to be done as a leading role by an actor, Jeetendra had to give up this film as he was shooting for 6 films that year. This film was a disaster in Hindi.
