Goofs:
Factual Mistake
According to the Indian Army rules, soldiers can not grow a beard, but Samar Anand is shown with a full beard.

Factual Mistake
Samar gets into the Indian army after the age of 25. The Indian army does not hire after the age of 25.

Factual Mistake
When Samar and Meera are waiting for a train in Charing Cross station, the announcement mentions that the train is going to Stanmore. The only London Underground train that goes to Stanmore is the Jubilee line, and this does not pass through the Charing Cross station.

Continuity
In a flashback scene, Meera is shown as a British child praying in the church. It might have been deliberate to show that as Katrina is from a British descent; however unless she was adopted in the movie, it doesn't add up to how her parents are Indians.

Factual Mistake
During the song "Challa", we see the lead actor dancing around a place which has the 5 rings of the Olympic Games. This scene is supposed to have happened in 2002, which wouldn't explain the presence of the emblem.

Miscellaneous
Meera's family owns a Rolls Royce Phantom and Buggati Veyron in 2002. However, the Phantom was launched in 2003 and Veyron in 2005.

Miscellaneous
In a scene taking place during Samar and Meera's romance in 2002, a Mercedes Benz S-Class is parked outside Meera's house. However, that S-Class model was not available until 2007.
Trivia:
The romantic scenes of the movie were directed by Yash Chopra's son, Aditya Chopra, to give the romance a more contemporary feel.

This movie marks the return of Yash Chopra as a director after a gap of 8 years, his last movie being Veer-Zaara.

The movie's release coincided with the 50th anniversary of Yash Chopra's career in Bollywood.
