The launch of this movie was different in the sense that there was no coconut-breaking ritual or sounding-the-clapperboard ceremony. Instead the lead men Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Akshaye Khanna unveiled their giant-sized pictures and clicked the remote for the screening of the one-minute promo.

A portion of the film was shot in the fort (near Varanasi) which is suppose to be located in Karachi, this location was suggested by Amitabh Bachchan.

A complaint was lodged against producer Gaurang Doshi, by Ravi Bohra with the Film Writers' Association, alleging that the story of the movie resembled his script about POWs in Pakistan. The Association ruled that the movie's story and the one registered by Bohra were similar; Doshi had had to pay 150,000 Rupees to Bohra.
