This movie won many awards and accolades including the National Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment and Filmfare Award for Best Film.

This movie is regarded as the debut of both Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla, as it was their first adult lead role in a major commercial movie. Their performances in this movie skyrocketed them into superstars overnight.

This movie was a true family affair, as it was written by Nasir Hussain and directed by his son Mansoor Khan, and his nephew, Aamir Khan playing the lead male role.

This movie was the first major hit for the music-director duo of Anand-Milind and singer Udit Narayan. It was also singer Alka Yagnik's first complete album .

Its long unwieldy title led to the movie being popularly referred to by the acronym "QSQT". This sparked off a fad of Hindi movies with long titles promoted by acronym substitutes: Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as "DDLJ" and Hum Aapke Hain Koun...! as "HAHK".

When the movie proved a hit, the Mumbai distributors decided to boost its prospects further by introducing a new strategy: buy eight or more tickets of the film and get a poster of Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla absolutely free. The strategy worked and the collections of the film showed a big jump.

One of the most innovative ad campaigns in Indian Film history, one of the hoardings of the film had no photographs, just this line: 'Who is Aamir Khan? ...Ask the girl next door.'

Towards the end of the superhit song "Papa Kehte Hain", Raj approaches a girl and sings "aankhon mein jaadu, hothon mein pyaar". That girl is none other than Reena Dutta, who was then Aamir Khan's wife. They were newly married and she had casually come to the sets to meet Aamir.

Two endings were filmed for the movie: one happy, one sad. The elder audience wanted a happy ending, while the younger audiences wanted a sad ending. The director stuck with the sad ending.
