Come fishing!
Filming Locations:
Gender equality ruled on the sets of the film. It was unplanned, but 30 of the crew were women, which is extremely rare in the world of Hindi cinema. There were women in every department, including direction, sound, lighting, camera, costume and photography.

The majority of the background music of the film and some dialogues were taken straight from films of Sippy Productions.

The storyline resembles the Argentinian film "Nine Queens". It has also been noted that the movie has borrowed most of its story from an American film 'Criminal' (2004).

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was in the lead role but was replaced with Priyanka Chopra with no given reason.

When Roy and Dittu are attempting to con Chandru in the cinema hall, the movie playing is director Rohan Sippy's father, director Ramesh Sippy's hit film 'Shaan'.

Originally, Sanjay Dutt was to play Roy, Abhishek Bachchan was to play Dittu and Aishwarya Rai was to play Simmi. However, due to time constraints Abhishek got the role of Roy, and Priyanka Chopra and Ritesh Deshmukh was brought in to play Simmi and Dittu.

When Dittu (Reitesh Deshmukh) flees away with Roy's (Abhishek Bacchan) car, in pursuit of Dittu, Roy gets in a cab having license plate "MH 01 C 9211". The same cab can be seen in the movie Taxi No. 9 2 11: Nau Do Gyarah which was released after "Bluffmaster!".

Abhishek landed his vocals for the first time for the song "Right Here Right Now."
