When lead actor Hrithik Roshan arrived on location to start shooting, his first film had not yet released, so no one recognized his face. Arriving for the first day's shoot dressed as a Kashmiri militant, which he portrays in the film, security thought Hrithik really WAS Kashmiri - because of his fair skin and light colouring - and refused to allow him on set!
Rakesh Roshan openly stated that he did not like the film because of a major hole in the script.
Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan were offered the main roles of Altaf and Inayat, but couldn't accept due to their commitment to Mohabbatein (2000).
Sonali Kulkarni, who is the same age as Hrithik Roshan, plays his stepmother in the film.
