Destiny plays a cruel game with him when Rocky is appointed as an anchor for the channel. Arun starts believing that Rocky will win over Alia. Circumstances get further out of hand for Arun when he gets thrown out of the channel. He has nobody to blame but God Himself. And very soon he has an encounter with the Almighty.

This movie marks the directorial debut of Rumi Jaffery, a well-known writer and the Hindi film industry.

Rumi Jaffery only stepped into direction due to encouragement from Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan who proved that were not just encouraging with words, but also signed on to play key roles.

The film took over 3 years to release due to various reasons/rumors from Salman Khan being arrested, Khan and Priyanka Chopra not getting along with each other and Amitabh Bachchan falling ill, amongst other unconfirmed reasons.

Originally the movie was titled "God is Great" but Salman Khan suggested it needed a Indian touch and suggested "God Tussi Great Ho".

Authorities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ordered a ban on the movie as many Muslim viewers felt that the movie violated Islamic teachings of a man blaming god for all the things which aren't going right for him and also that a man (Amitabh Bachchan) enacted the role of God. The main reason why the viewers were unhappy was due to the fact that the creator of the film himself is Muslim.

Yash Tonk was signed for the second lead role, but he did the shooting for 4 days and decided to drop out of the project as he got busy with TV work. Sohail Khan was roped in on the last minute.

Salman Khan was apparently unimpressed with the initial promo snippets and got the marketing team to create new promos.

According to director Rumi Jaffrey, the film is inspired from a village folk tale about a Brahmin, though most reviewers noted that the film's story-line has similarities with the 2003 Hollywood comedy Bruce Almighty, starring Jim Carrey and Jennifer Aniston.
