During the party scene in Raj's house, the song that is being played is Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, but then neither the song nor the film had released when this story was supposedly taking place.

In the scene where Mahi misses the train, she is shown reading Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince. Even the first book in the Potter series wasn't released in 1996.

When Gayatri rejects Raj's wedding proposal, he goes through a flashback of how he had betrayed Mahi and Radhika before. In the flashback, he sees Radhika crying at the place where they were supposed to meet for their wedding. He was already on a flight to Sydney when that happened.

Factual Mistake
Raj works at Microsoft in Sydney as a game developer who made Halo 3. But Microsoft was just the publisher of Halo 3. Halo 3 was developed by Bungie Studios.

While playing in Swiss Alps, Ranbir and his friends are heard singing "Dhoom Machale". The story in this movie revolves around 1996 and Dhoom wasn't released until 2004. However, background music is rarely dictated by which time period the film is in.
Preity Zinta was in talks for playing a role in the film.

Katrina Kaif was removed from the project as the film was becoming too lengthy.

Amrita Rao was offered a role, but she refused the offer.

The title track song 'Bachna Ae Haseeno', was sung originally by Kishore Kumar in the film 'Hum Kisise Kum Naheen', and was filmed on actor Rishi Kapoor. When the idea about using the song 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' from the old movie came, the music duo Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani were excited but they decided not to do a remix version of it. The track was completely re-worked by retaining some of the original vocals of Kishore Kumar on the beginning of the song. And then they got Kishore Kumar's son Sumeet Kumar to sing the rest of the song as a new composition with Vishal Dadlani's rap lyrics. The final product turned out to be unique mix with the legendary singer Kishore Kumar and his son heard in one single track in which the recording is separated by decades and that same song filmed on actor Rishi Kapoor's son Ranbir Kapoor.

The film's first trailer was attached to Tashan and the second one to Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic.

Since two of the film's characters work for Microsoft Game Studios, plenty of video games that have been released by the studio are referenced. In addition, nearly all of the movies referenced are previous releases from Yash Raj Films, with the notable exception of Hum Kisise Kum Naheen.
