In 1978, Feroz Khan approached Amitabh Bachchan for the role of Amar in Qurbani. Amitabh agreed but asked Feroz Khan to wait for 6 months. Only then could he adjust his dates. Feroz said he would'nt be able to wait and signed Vinod Khanna.
In 1976, Feroz had signed a film with Dharmendra and Shashi Kapoor titled " Zindaan". This would've marked the first time Feroz would work with any member from the Kapoor Family. The film was shelved after its mahurat.
Before Qurbani, Feroz had started directing a film titled " Kasak". He shot the song Laila O Laila with Zeenat Aman and Amjad Khan. After realizing something was missing in the film he decided to shelve the film. When he started Qurbani, he retained the already picturized song of Laila O Laila. After Qurbani he once again he attempted to start a film titled " Kasak". He recorded a song titled " E Mere Watan" sung by Nitin Mukesh. Once again something went wrong with the film and he decided not to do the film. When he started Yalgaar he used the recorded song from Kasak.
Two of his films remain completed and unreleased due to financial problems. Shikar Shikaari Ka starring Himself, Reena Roy, Amjad Khan and Prem Nath. Music by RD Burman. The second one is titled Gul E Bakawali starring Himself, Reena Roy, Sulakshna Pandit, Bindu, Amjad Khan, Jeevan. Music by Rajesh Roshan.
