Goofs:
Factual Mistake
Kareena's shadow is seen in the mirror, which is a goof considering the finale twist.

Factual Mistake
The ring on Kareena's finger doesn't look muddy after being dug out from the mud.

Factual Mistake
In the end when Aamir Khan's car is drowning, he is unable to open the door of his car. However Mythbusters (TV Show) has shown that when a car is completely drowned and inside of the car is fully filled with water, car doors open easily as usual, the doors would be difficult to open only if inside of the car is not completely filled with water.
Trivia:
The film's concept came from an unexplained event witnessed by co-writer Zoya Akhtar and a group of her friends as they were driving down a deserted road one night.

It took Aamir Khan four months to learn how to swim in preparation for his role in the film.

Aamir Khan grew a moustache for his policeman role in the film. He grew it so long that it exceeded police regulations, and had to trim it.
