The release of this film was delayed by several months when its producer Nazim Rizvi was arrested on charges of financing films with gangster Chhota Shakeel's money.
The premise of this film - a childless couple employing a prostitute as a surrogate mother - may have been borrowed from the film "Doosri Dulhan" (1983). "Doosri Dulhan" itself may have been inspired by the Tamil film "Avan Aval Adhu" (1980). There were also elements in the film that were inspired by the Hollywood film "Pretty Woman" (1990).
The threesome of Salman Khan, Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta had appeared together earlier in the film "Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega" (2000). However, according to Nazim Rizvi, the producer of this film, they had signed his film first.
