Trivia


 

    Album

  • The music release of this film was done by A.R. Rahman's mother, Kareema Begum.
  • This was A.R. Rahman's first original score for a Hindi film. His previous scores in Hindi films were originally used in Tamil films.
  • Lyricist Mehboob wrote lyrics for an original music score for the first time for this film. He had debuted earlier with lyrics for the Hindi-dubbed songs for "Bombay" (1995).[1]
  • This film may have inspired the Hollywood romcom "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!" (2004).
  • This was the breakthrough film of fashion designer Manish Malhotra. In fact, this film is credited with transforming the approach to costume design in Hindi films. Manish Malhotra won the first ever Filmfare Award for Best Costume Design for this film. The award was apparently instituted that year with this film in mind.
  • It was speculated that Gulshan Grover's character in this film, Steven Kapoor, was based on director Shekhar Kapur. Ram Gopal Varma himself never confirmed this but said that he had heard Shekhar Kapur and Vidhu Vinod Chopra debating which one of them Steven Kapoor was based on.[2]
  • Before becoming an independent director, Madhur Bhandarkar worked as an assistant director in several films. He assisted Ram Gopal Varma in this film and even appeared in a cameo as the assistant to the director played by Gulshan Grover.
  • A misunderstanding developed between Ram Gopal Varma and Aamir Khan a few months after the film's release over an interview Varma had done with Khalid Mohamed. According to Varma, Khalid Mohamed had misquoted him as saying that the waiter in the film's famous restaurant scene had acted better than Aamir Khan. According to Varma, his take on the restaurant scene was more nuanced. His point of view was that the waiter's job in that scene was more difficult than Aamir's.[3]

    Song

  • Rangeela Re - The first song shot for this film, "Tanha Tanha", was choreographed by Saroj Khan. Ram Gopal Varma was not happy with the dance moves in the song and wanted something more modern. He, therefore, had the rest of the songs in the film choreographed by the debutant, Ahmed Khan. Ahmed Khan ended up winning the Filmfare Award for Best Choreography for this song.[4]
  • Rangeela Re - This was the debut Hindi film song of Udit Narayan's son, Aditya Narayan. He also appeared on screen in the film for his lines.
  • Tanha Tanha Yahan Pe Jeena - Asha Bhosle had declined to be considered for Filmfare Awards after winning the Best Female Playback Singer for the song "Yeh Mera Dil Yaar Ka Deewana" ("Don", 1978). However, she made an exception for this song and accepted the Filmfare Special Jury Award for it.[5]
  • Yaaron Sun Lo Zara - A.R. Rahman had used the tune of this song earlier for the Telugu film song "Babu Love Cheyyara" ("Super Police", 1994).[6]
  • Maangta Hai Kya - While A.R. Rahman had made his Hindi film debut as a singer earlier for the dubbed song "Urvashi Urvashi" ("Humse Hai Muqabla", 1995), this was his first Hindi film song for an original composition.[7]
