What's Your Raashee? Yogesh Patel, a young man in a hurry. Yogesh must find his dream girl within 10 days to save his family from utter ruin. Finding the dream girl is tough enough. Finding her in a hurry is even tougher.
The title is a clever bilingual mix. While "Raashee" means sun sign (Aries, Sagittarius, etc.) in its Indian language, it also sounds like "rush" in English, as in "What's your rush?" - very apropo for a man dating rapidly down a line of twelve astrological signs trying to find a bride among them in ten days.
The film's story is based on the novel "Kimball Revenswood" by Gujerati author Madhu Rye.
The song "Aaja Lehraate" was shot in one take. It was a draining process for Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja, as one mistake they made would require them to shoot the song from the beginning... which happened many times. Chopra fell ill due to the stress of shooting the film, and filming had to be delayed while she took a rest.
The film's teaser poster was designed by Ashutosh Gowariker and Nabeel Abbas. According to Gowariker, the poster gave off a "paperback feel which will not reveal much about the film at the same time will have a feel of the film."
The film is loosely inspired by "Sailor Moon" (1992), which also featured a set of girls who are based on their stars.
Ashutosh Gowariker originally wanted AR Rahman to compose for the film, as he had composed for his earlier films "Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India" (2001), "Swades" (2004) and "Jodhaa Akbar"
(2008), but he couldn't do the film because he wanted to compose for Danny Boyle's "Slumdog Millionaire" (2008) instead.
The film was shot across 65 unique districts in Bombay, and some scenes were shot in Baroda. Only a few scenes were shot abroad, in Chicago.
Priyanka Chopra plays twelve roles in this film. This breaks the record set by Kamal Haasan, who acted in ten roles in "Dasavatharam" (2008).
