Trivia:
This was R. D. Burman's last film as music director.

Madhuri Dixit was the first choice for the lead role. Javed Akhtar even wrote the song "Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To" keeping Madhuri in mind. However, she dropped out due to date issues and was replaced by Manisha Koirala.

Manisha Koirala failed her first audition, but was chosen with her second one.

Jackie Shroff had wanted Shah Rukh Khan to play the role of Munna.
