Trivia:
This is the first Bollywood film to be produced and released by a Hollywood production company Columbia TriStar Pictures.

A scene in the film shows Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor posing in a waltz-like manner, with the letters RK from a lighted sign in the background. This scene captures the logo of the R.K. Films Company, founded by Ranbir Kapoor's grandfather, Raj Kapoor.

To give a dream-like atmosphere the film was shot in tones of green, blue and black.

The song "Thode Badmash" is composed by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

According to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film is a tribute to his grandmother, who spent her whole life waiting for her son Navin Bhansali to return home.

Cinematographer 'Ravi K Chandran' used as a reference the works of art by the famous artists Frederick Arthur Bridgman, Fred R Wagner and William Louis Sontag to make the shots resemble paintings and thus look more poetic.

Space lights were used extensively to establish the painted look of the film.

For the daytime scenes, space lights were used ordinarily; for the night-time scenes, the space lights were applied with ¼ CT Blue gel to achieve a cool nightly mood.

Music director Monty Sharma and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali spent two and a half years working on the film's soundtrack.

Throughout the "Masha Allah" song, Sakina carries a black/white/red shawl. This shawl was an original antique piece. It took costume designer Anuradha Vakeal four months to locate a similar garment to keep as a substitute for emergencies.

The character Ranbir Kapoor plays in the movie is named 'Ranbir Raj' is the real name of Ranbir Kapoor's grand-father and legendary film-maker Raj Kapoor.
