To Each His Own is a 1946 American drama film directed by Mitchell Leisen, which tells the story of Jody Norris (Olivia de Havilland), who falls in love with a pilot (John Lund). He goes off to fight in World War I, leaving Jody to give birth to their son. In her attempt to keep his birth a secret, she loses him to another family and spends her life loving him from afar.
The film was later remade in India, the Hindi hit film Aradhana (1969) that made Rajesh Khanna a major star. The film won Filmfare Best Movie Award and Sharmila Tagore won the Filmfare Best Actress Award. Aradhana's success spawned two more remakes in India: the Telugu language film Kannavari Kalalu (1974), and the Tamil language film Sivakamiyin Selvan (1974).
