Wafaa was promoted as a comeback film for Rajesh Khanna in lead role. The movie was not directed well, nor the story well portrayed on screen which made it a box office failure and received mostly negative reviews for the performance of the heroine and supporting casts.

Sahib Chopra, who played the role of Raj in Wafaa, was a newcomer who did not have any prior acting experience. He was chosen by the director Rakesh Sawant after he saw his photographs in a magazine. He did not have any scenes with Rajesh Khanna in the film and only interacted with him during the dubbing. He said that he was nervous to work with such a legendary actor and learned a lot from him. He also praised Laila Khan for being a friendly and supportive co-star. ec8f644aee
