Two film writers Agha Imtiaz Ali Khan and Quresh M.A. were asked jointly to write film script of Khoon Da Badla Khoon by Latif Butt the producer of film 1970 which was directed by M.J. Rana. When film was released on August 14, 1970 its film script was very well received by the film gores in general and film makers in particular. So both of them were offered two more films named Seyyan (story writer) and Chan Puttar (dialogues) in same year.
