Trivia


 

    Album

  • Farhan Akhtar had Akshaye Khanna in mind for the role of Akash in the film. He had approached Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan for the role of Siddharth. When they turned down the offer, he assigned Akshaye Khanna to the role of Siddharth, and offered the role of Akash to Aamir Khan.
  • Farhan Akhtar first met Preity Zinta when she was visiting Mumbai for a screen test for "Kya Kehna" (2000). He promised her that whenever he made his first movie, he would cast her in it. He fulfilled his promise in this film.[1][2]
  • The songs of this film were composed and written in just four days. Farhan Akhtar, Shankar - Ehsaan - Loy and Javed Akhtar went to Lonavala together, and when they returned to Mumbai in four days, the songs were ready for recording.[3]
  • Although this was Farhan Akhtar's first film as director, he had worked with Shankar Mahadevan earlier, when he had directed the music video for his hit, non-film song "Breathless" (1998).[4]
  • The role of the boyfriend of Preity Zinta's chracter in this film was played by Farhan Akhtar's friend Asad Dadarkar, who had influenced the role of Aamir Khan's character in the film.[5]

    Song

  • Dil Chahta Hai - Javed Akhtar faced some resistance from Farhan Akhtar for the phrase "Chamkeele Din" in this song's mukhda, since he associated the word "chamkeele" with toothpaste or detergent! Farhan eventually gave in, and the phrase made it to the song.[6]
  • Jaane Kyon Log Pyar Karte Hain - This song was one of the earliest in Bollywood to use the didgeridoo (also known as a didjeridu or didge), a wind instrument developed by indigenous Australians.
  • Koi Kahe Kehta Rahe - Preity Zinta loved this song so much that she insisted on being onscreen for it, even though her character didn't attend the college whose graduation party this song was for.[7]
