On the way there, he meets with another slacker by the name of Prem, who is the son of a tailor named Bankeylal Bhopali. Prem is also on his way to meet Raveena and attempt to convince her to marry him. When both find out that they are after the same woman, they decide to outdo each other to win over Raveena's affections. Unsure of whom she is going to marry and wishing to find true love without the temptation of her wealth, Raveena asks her secretary, Karisma, to pose has herself, while she assumes her name.

During the scene where Salman and Aamir meet in the lodge, after Aamir gets released from jail, Aamir asks Salman how he is. Salman replies "Tip Top" but the visual looks like he doesn't say anything at all.

In the climax when Aamir tells Crime master Gogo more about his childhood expression, Gogo in a long shot holding a gun on his right hand happily shouts to everyone about what others were thinking about him. A close-up is followed afterwards and it is visibly clear that Gogo is holding the same gun on his left hand without revealing why and how.

Salman Khan's hairstyle keeps changing throughout the film as it was in making for 3 years, In many scenes he has long hair of Saajan Days while in some scenes he has the short hair he had during HAHK days

In the scene where Anand Akela shows Prem his token for the interview, Prem places it on the table. All three characters are shown to move away at the end of the scene, but Anand doesn't pick his token back. He reveals much later that he has given up hope of marriage to Raveena, but its only after their attempt to foil the plans of other hopefuls.
Aamir Khan said in an interview that he was very unhappy with Salman Khan during the making of the film because he kept arriving late to the set. Aamir decided to never work with Salman again. Ironically, the two ended up becoming best friends.
