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.
The classic comedy "Andaz Apna Apna" which was a 1994 super hit is scheduled to be re-released in theaters in November 2016.

Crime Master Gogo was supposed to be played by Tinnu Anand, but eventually could not perform the role due to date clashes.

The confusion of names with reference to real names of Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor was a crackling idea that was actually the prompted by a mistake made by an assistant director

Dileep Shukla, the dialogue writer of this movie confessed that it did not have any bound script, that it was a combination of magical improvisation and brilliant spontaneity that grew out of an idea that director Rajkumar Santoshi and he had.

It's brilliant characterisation, universally identifiable dialogues, and melodious music are some of the reasons "Fukrey" director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba considers to be highlights of the movie. Professing his ardent love for this classic tale he admitted that this remains one of the few absolutely crazy film rides he has ever taken in mainstream Bollywood.

This evergreen comedy celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014 with much vigour and aplomb, clearly signifying its universal appeal and longevity amongst audiences. In addition, a tribute was made by several outstanding filmmakers of Indian cinema who were deeply influenced by this movie.

This film was in the making for 3 years.

When Salman Khan is asked whether he has seen the movie Sholay (1975), he says "Haan, dus baar (yes, ten times)", Amir Khan jokingly says "Iske baap ne likhi hai" (his father has written it). This is true. Salman Khan's father Salim Khan was one the co-writers of the 1975 block buster Sholay.

It is not the first time that actor Jagdeep has played the role of a "Bhopali". He has done it "Sholay" (1975) and in "Soorma Bhopali"

This movie performed poorly at the box office upon its release but since then has gathered a cult following.

The production of this movie was discussed in a conversation between Aamir Khan and Rishi Kapoor in the movie Damini which was released in the year 1993.

When Aamir Khan and "Salman Khan" were approached to sign the contract for the movie each of them wanted more screen time than the other, but finally settled on being onscreen for the same amout of time.

'Mehmood''s character owns a film studio called "Wah Wah Productions". This is a reference to Mehmood's earlier film _Pyaar Kiye Jaa (1966)_ where he plays a person who has his own film productions also called "Wah Wah Productions".

Actor "Shehzad" paid a unique tribute to his father Ajit, a legendary villain, by adopting his mannerisms and voice for the negative character played in this movie.

The whole part towards the end where Aamir Khan compliments Shakti Kapoor, is a reference and tribute to the film Sholay.

Shakti Kapoor's character, Crime Master Gogo, is supposedly the nephew of Mogambo, the villian immortalised by Amrish Puri in Mr. India. The movie also makes references to the famous line "Mogambo Khush Hua" (Mogambo is pleased) during the many confrontations between Bhalla and Robert and Crime Master Gogo. Crime Master Gogo continually steals something from the two hired goons, as it is "the family business". On his departure, he starts the phrase by saying "Gogo..." while Robert finishes the sentence "Khush Huagi" (Gogo... Khush Huagi = Gogo will be happy)
