Trivia


 

    Album

  • Filmmaker Sriram Raghavan paid tribute to a 1977 film starring Mahendra Sandhu by using its title for this film. Raghavan even offered Sandhu a role in this film but the actor declined it. Mahendra Sandhu had retired from films in the 1990s and transitioned to a successful career as a builder. Raghavan ended up acknowledging him in the film in its opening sequence. In this scene, Agent Vinod pretends to give up a traitor in the Taliban camp and says that his real name is Mahinder Sandhu.[1]
  • The film's lead actors Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan got married a few months after the release of this film. Their wedding in October 2012 followed a 5-year courtship period.
  • It was reported that the makers of this film had to pay a heavy price for using old film songs without permission and credits. The songs in question were the Hindi film songs "Aasman Pe Hai Khuda" ("Phir Subha Hogi", 1958) and "O Meri Jaan Maine Kaha" ("The Train", 1970) and the Tamil film song "Rakamma" ("Thalapathi", 1991).[2][3][4][5]
  • This film was banned in Pakistani because it was seen to portray the country in poor light.[6]
  • Shortly before the release of this film, Saif Ali Khan was involved in a brawl with South African businessman Iqbal Meer Sharma at The Taj Mahal Palace hotel in Mumbai. It was alleged that the brawl was a publicity stunt for the film but Saif denied it. Saif and two of his friends were chargesheeted and the court case went on for years. In 2015, Iqbal Sharma rejected an offer for an out-of-court settlement and indicated that he wanted the trial to proceed.[7][8]

    Song

  • I'll Do The Talking Tonight - This song was based on a tune taken from Boney M's "Rasputin" which the filmmakers licensed from Sony/ATV. The film also credited the Serbian folk song "Ruse Kose Curo Imas". The Turkish folk song "Uskudar (Katibim)" also had a similar tune. It is possible that "Rasputin" itself drew inspiration from one of these folk songs.[9][10]
  • Pungi - There were allegations that this song was plagiarised from the song "Soosan Khanoom" by the Iranian group Barobax. However, after going to court with charges of plagiarism against Pritam, Barobax withdrew the case and apologized to the music director. In their statement, the band said that they realized "Pritam is right and there is no copying".[11][12]
  • Raabta (Night In A Motel) - The audio records of this film incorrectly credited Hamsika Iyer as the vocalist for this track although it was sung by Aditi Singh Sharma.
  • Raabta (Night In A Motel) - While there were four versions of this song in the film album, this version was used in the film. The song sequence was shot in a single take with no cuts.[13]
  • Raabta (Night In A Motel) - A 2017 film derived its title from this song. A portion of the tune of the song and some of its lines were reused in the title track of the 2017 film.[14]
  • Govind Bolo Gopal Bolo - This song appeared in the opening credits of the film but was not included in its initial audio release. The song was added in later versions of the album.
