A stranger comes to town.
This movie is the uncredited remake of Tony Scott's Man on Fire (2004). The original Man on Fire (1987), directed by Élie Chouraqui, was also based on the eponymous novel by A. J. Quinnell.

The movie's working title was "Ajnabi - A Man Apart".

The filmmakers chose Bangkok as their primary location principally because Bangkok hadn't been captured so extensively on celluloid in the past.

The entire unit traveled in one bus. The bus would leave for the locations, as scheduled and would not wait for anyone. Those who were late missed the bus. The unfortunate ones included producer, Bunty Walia, director Apoorva Lakhia as well as actress Perizaad Zorabian.

The makers auditioned approximately 70 kids for the role of Anamika before finally zeroing in on Baby Rucha Vaidya. One of the prerequisites for the character was that the child had to know how to swim. However, even though Rucha didn't know how to swim, director Apoorva Lakhia was so impressed that he was adamant on casting her. And so she was given three months before the shooting of the film, during which she actually learned how to swim.

The cast and crew used to keep having Tuk Tuk races, throughout the streets of Bangkok, during their schedule. Tuk Tuks are the local auto rickshaws.

Pooja Bedi shot a cameo role as a News Reporter, but her scenes were removed in the final print as the makers felt there wasn't any need for her role.

The snaps of "Amitabh Bachhan" seen when Kelly Dorjee browses police records are actually from the film "Lakshya" which also had Amitabh playing an army officer (Colonel Damle).

This is the first time Arjun Rampal will be seen in an item number track.

Producers Bunty Walia and Jaspreet Singh Walia requested good friends Vishal and Shekhar to compose the two item numbers pictured on Sanjay Dutt and Arjun Rampal.

In the scene when Ravi (Vikram Chatwal) and Nikasha (Perizaad Zorabian) leave for London, Suryaveer Singh (Amitabh Bachchan) is wearing a cap which has director Apoorva Lakhia's directorial debut's name Mumbai Se Aaya Mera Dost.

Arjun Rampal's first negative role.
