Where did you watch this movie?

This light-hearted comedy follows the fluctuating fortunes of Abbas Ali (Abhishek Bachchan), who lives in Karol Bagh, New Delhi with his sister Sania (Asin Thottumkal). They are legally fighting for an ancestral property – a property dispute case which they end up losing. Their well wisher, Shastri Chacha, advises and convinces them to migrate to his village Ranakpur, where he assures Abbas that he will get him a job at his owner's place. The owner being none other than the powerful Prithviraj Raghuvanshi (Ajay Devgn). Abbas enters Ranakpur village and while saving a child trapped inside a temple, he breaks open the lock of an ancestral temple but fate plays an important twist in Abbas' life as the whole village including Prithviraj's step-brother Vikrant opposes Abbas' actions but Prithviraj arrives and handles the situation. On being asked his name, Abbas's friend comes out with a fake name, as it would create a rage if villagers came to know that the lock of a temple had been broken by a Muslim. From here starts a series of cover-ups, goof-ups and comic situations where to cover one lie, Abbas starts padding up with a bigger lie telling people that he also has a twin brother with no moustache. From here on starts the topsy-turvy journey of a single person acting as two different entities

Don't talk just watch.
Abbas is supposed to be poor and drives a taxi but he also wears an Omega watch and Nike shoes. In fact, everyone in Ranakpur wears Converse and Nike.

It was revealed in the 300th episode special of Comedy Circus, where Rohit Shetty was a guest judge, that one of the show's popular performers Paresh Ganatra was among the cast of this movie. He played a cameo as a Builder.

Veteran actress and co-host of the reality television show 'Jubilee Comedy Circus', Archana Puran Singh made a cameo appearance in this movie.

In the reality television show 'Jubilee Comedy Circus', Krushna Abhishek did a performance of Rohit Shetty never giving him a film role to do but having promised him in earlier seasons of the show, Rohit was so impressed by the performance, he decided to give Krushna a role in this movie.

This movie was shot at several offbeat locations including Panchgani and Chomu Palace.

Originally, actress Genelia D'Souza was signed to play the second female lead, but due to her differences with the makers, she opted out of the project and hence the role was offered to Prachi Desai.

The lead female role was first offered to Bipasha Basu, but when she rejected it, the opportunity was bagged by Asin.

Abhishek's father, Amitabh Bachchan played a cameo as himself in this movie, during the title song.

This movie was remade in Telugu under the title 'Masala', with Venkatesh and Ram Pothineni enacting the roles of Ajay Devgan and Abhishek Bachchan respectively.

Abhishek Bachchan was injured during a fight scene in Jodhpur.
