Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was Vikas Bahl's directorial debut. He had previously co-directed the film "Chillar Party" (2011) with Nitesh Tiwari.[1]
  • Vikas Bahl showed the rushes of the film to Anurag Kashyap, his co-founder at Phantom Films, when they were on a recce in Sri Lanka for "Bombay Velvet" (2015). Kashyap liked the film so much that he offered to edit it. This was his first film as an editor. He was credited as Editor along with Abhijit Kokate.[2][3][4]
  • When the film was released, Vikas Bahl was quoted as saying "I wouldn't have made the film had Kangana not agreed to play Rani". It was assumed based on this that Kangana Ranaut had been the first and only choice for the film's titular role. However, while speaking at the 2019 Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, actress Kareena Kapoor said that the film had been offered to her first and that she had turned it down.[5][6]
  • Kangana Ranaut improvised a lot of her dialogues in the film. Her contributions were considered important enough to fetch her an "Additional Dialogue" credit. She also suggested two scenes that made their way into the film.[7][8]
  • Vikas Bahl was able to complete the film on a modest budget despite shooting it in more than a hundred locations in Europe. He was able to do so by compressing the shooting schedule to less than two months and by taking only 25 crew members with him. He acknowledged Kangana Ranaut's contributions in completing the filming on time. She made do without vanity vans, changing her outfits in public toilets. The film's promotion was muted but it ended up becoming one of the biggest hits of the year as a result of word-of-mouth publicity. It won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi and Kangana won the Best Actress Award.[9]
  • Cinematographer Bobby Singh died of an asthmatic attack after eating crab while the film was still in production. Siddharth Diwan was brought in to complete the rest of the film. The film opened with a tribute to Bobby consisting of a montage of video clips of him and a message - "For the love of Bobby".[10][11]
  • In 2018, a former employee of Phantom Films accused Vikas Bahl of sexually assaulting her during the promotional tour of "Bombay Velvet" (2015). Shortly after that, Kangana Ranaut came out in support of the woman and accused Bahl of behaving inappropriately with her during the making of this film.[12]
  • Charges of plagiarism were levelled against the film. Abhigyan Jha claimed that it had the same premise - a woman going on a honeymoon on her own after her fiance breaks up with her - as the unreleased film "Phir Zindagi" written by him. He claimed that Parvati Balagopalan, the director of "Phir Zindagi", had shown Bahl and his wife the film at his residence in the 2000s. Parvati was looking to get the film released and Bahl was heading the production house UTV Spot Boy at the time. According to Balagopalan, while Bahl's film had a different script, it borrowed not only the premise of "Phir Zindagi" but also some scenes from it.[13]

    Song

  • Ranjha - Amit Trivedi was wrongly credited as the music director for this song in the film's audio release. It was, in fact, composed by singer Rupesh Kumar Ram himself. He was duly credited in the film and on digital platforms.[14]
  • Hungama Ho Gaya (Remix) - This song was a remix of the Hindi film song "Hungama Ho Gaya" ("Anhonee", 1973) composed by Laxmikant - Pyarelal. The remixed version included lines from the original song sung by Asha Bhosle as well as newly recorded lines sung by Arijit Singh. The song also featured a cover version of lines from the 1965 hit "California Dreamin'" by American band The Mamas & The Papas. While the rest of the songs in the film were released by T-Series, this song was released separately as a single by Saregama.[15][16]
