At a private residential school in India, Gurukul the generally accepted cultural norm that disapproves of public shows of affection is strictly upheld. Within school premises the strict disciplinarian and headmaster, Narayan ensures that open romance is forbidden, as is showing affection in public. With their hormones raging, a few of Narayan's students find themselves madly in love: Sameer is in love with Sanjana (Kim Sharma), his childhood friend. Vicky falls for Ishika (Shamita Shetty), a student at the all-girls university next door to Gurukul. Karan becomes smitten with Kiran (Preeti Jhangiani), a girl he sees one night at a train station. All three know that if they're caught they'd be expelled, so they at first do not pursue their love interests. Then the college recruits a music teacher named Raj, who eventually starts fanning the flames of love among the students, much to Narayan's chagrin, anger, and displeasure. Things get worse when Narayan finds out that Raj was the very man who fell in love with his daughter who eventually committed suicide when he didn't grant them permission to get married. Will the six young people also find their hearts broken by the Narayan's heartlessness and rigidity? If so, who will be the first take an indiscriminate step like suicide in the school, and reignite a fire that is sure to reopen many scars of the past, both for Narayan and Raj?

Revealing Mistakes
When Kiran has finished her classical dance on the roof in the rain, she stands there with her arms extended. Megha then appears with a white sari, and as she circles Kiran, she accidentally hits Kiran's right arm.
Amitabh Bachchan was out of work and with no makers approaching him, he himself approached Yash Chopra for some work, and was offered a role in this movie.

The school campus "Gurukul" set was erected in London, England.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's face playing Megha was not revealed in the trailer prior to the movie release. As she was less popular back then, a majority of the audience guessed the role of Megha to be played by Kajol or Madhuri Dixit, actresses who had previously worked with Shah Rukh Khan under the Yash Raj Banner.

Shah Rukh Khan's name in the movie is Raj Aryan. Aryan is the name of Shahrukh Khan's son.

"Sridevi" was supposed to be in this film as Amitabh Bachchan's love interest, but she turned down the role.

Karisma Kapoor and Kajol offered the roles of Ishika and Sanjana, but both of them rejected the offer.

Shah Rukh Khan agreed to do this film without looking at the script first.

Originally, before the release of this film, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's performance was meant to be a guest appearance. However, after the film released, her character was so popular and seemed so integral to the story that it was credited as a regular appearance.

Half-way into completing the song "Aankhein Khuli", Jugal Hansraj fractured his ankle. This occurred when he had to leap over the dancers and carry Kim Sharma away from the bench. They filmed some of the close-ups and medium shots with him wearing a cast.

Yash Chopra's favorite scene was where Shah Rukh is looking at the sky crying blaming himself of 3 boys who are thrown out of Gurukul.

Director Karan Johar designed the costumes for Amitabh Bachchan in this movie.

All 6 newcomers started rehearsing for the film 6 months prior to shooting.
