Trivia:
The story between Shilpa Shetty and Shiney Ahuja is loosely inspired by the lead actors story in the 1945 Hollywood movie "Brief Encounter". Many of the scenes that take place can be compared between the two movies.

Out of 4 short stories, the story of involving Sharman Joshi, Kangana Ranaut and Kay Kay Menon is inspired by the Billy Wilder's movie "The Apartment" (1960). Kay Kay Menon plays the boss who utilizes Sharman Joshi's apartment to spend time with Kangana Ranaut. Sharman Joshi plays the same role as Jack Lemmon, while Kay Kay Menon plays a similar role as Fred MacMurray and Kangana Ranaut plays Shirley Maclaine.

Urmila Matondkar was the first choice to play Shruti Ghosh.

Composer Pritam Chakraborty can be seen in the film, playing the leader of a rock band of minstrels. Such bands are often seen playing songs in metro stations. These minstrels appear at important junctures in the film and move the story forward.
