Factual Mistake
Throughout the movie, everyone refers to the game Dev plays as football. But the setting is the US, and in the US the sport is called "soccer".

Factual Mistake
When Dev is leaving for Toronto from Grand Central Station in NYC, he boards a SEPTA R1 train. SEPTA's R1 only serves Philadelphia, its suburbs and airport.

Continuity
In the scene where Rishi and Rhea call their spouses about making their marriage work, they part with a kiss on the cheek. Rhea turns back to go to her office, but Rishi cannot be seen anywhere. Yet, according to the angle she turns, Rishi should have been shown walking away from her.
Trivia:
Director Karan Johar makes a cameo appearance in the film.

The role of Shah Rukh Khan's son in the film is played by a girl.

Karan Johar asked Shah Rukh Khan to direct the controversial hotel scene because he was busy elsewhere. Khan then asked Amitabh Bachchan to direct the scene because he was not comfortable doing it.

Kajol was offered the lead role in the film but turned it down due to scheduling conflicts.
