"G.One" is always shown with blue eyes. But just before the song "Chamakh Challo" he has brown eyes that change back into blue ones as he starts singing.

Errors in Geography
During the train sequence, the train is first shown crossing Bandra station. Then it is mentioned that the train crosses Vile Parle (Parla) station. Finally it crashes into the CST Station, which is actually in the opposite direction to the direction of travel shown earlier.

Factual Mistake
In the movie, Karva Chauth is shown before Dussera, but in actuality, Dussera is celebrated 10 days prior to Karva Chauth.

Factual Mistake
In the train sequence, the train travels from Bandra to CST. This is the harbor line route of the Mumbai locals. None of these harbor line trains have 12 coaches, while the train in the movie had 12 coaches.

According to the plot, "Ra.one" cannot kill G.one and vice-verse until both have their H.A.R.T plugged into their system.The only way to kill either of them is with the Anti-H.A.R.T gun (with only one bullet) which appears at level 3. Nowhere in the film is it mentioned what would happen if both "Ra.one" and "G.one" misfire the bullets.
This movie released with approximately 4,500 prints including 1,000 for the international markets, the maximum for any film.

In July 2007, Shah Rukh Khan was signed on to play the male lead of "Robot" as well as be the producer for the project. In October, the same year, the deal was called off.

Rajinikanth is not the only one playing a cameo in "Ra.One". Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra have also made guest appearances in the film.

The idea of making "Ra.One" originated while he was watching a commercial on TV six years ago. Sinha said, "The commercial dealt with two kids controlling a human with a remote. It was fascinating, and the visual stayed with me for some time". Sinha wrote a three-page short story based on the commercial, which he felt was good enough to be made into a film.

Child actor Armaan Verma was required to go through several stages in the audition process until he was finally selected to play the role of Prateek.

Jackie Chan was approached for a role in the film which was finally played by Tom Wu.

Amitabh Bachchan did the voice-over for the game intro in the film.

Verma, who plays Khan's son in the film, had to learn the Brazilian martial arts dance, Capoeira, in preparation for his role.

While shooting for the film in Mumbai, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev visited Yash Raj Studios, to watch Khan at work.

R&B singer Akon recorded two songs for the film.

Days before its release, script-writer Yash Patnaik claimed that the film resembled a concept that he had developed several years back.

This futuristic thriller features as many as 3,500 special effects shots.
