Trivia:
Lyricist Prasoon Joshi rewrote the song 'Sarfaroshi ki Tammna' by just using one line.

The song 'Lukka Chuppi' was Prasoon Joshi's second song with Lata Mangeshkar.

The song 'Khoon Chala' was used to play at the candle march and also after the Jessica Lal case, the news channels also started playing it.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee loved the lyrics of the the movie Rang De Basanti.

There was an English version planned and titled as 'Paint It Yellow" but was dropped subsequently.

In India, the color saffron represents sacrifice, and when someone says, "Main rang de basanti" (paint me saffron), it means the person is ready to be sacrificed for a great cause hence saffron being a predominant color in the movie.

Flight Lieutenant Ajay Rathod's character was initially to be played by Shah Rukh Khan, but he couldn't due to his busy schedule and this cameo by Madhavan turned out to be the best bet in his career in Bollywood.

The title is inspired from a patriotic poem written by Dushyant Kumar.

A.R. Rahman worked on the music score for three years.

This was India's official entry to the Oscars for the Best Foreign Language Film category in 2007.
