Factual Mistake
Towards the beginning of the film the narrator mentions that the 'The Great Wall of China" is the only man made object visible from Space. However, it has been scientifically proven that for a human being to be able to see "The Great Wall of China" from Space a resolution of 7.7 times better than normal vision would be required, making that statement an impossibility

Factual Mistake
On numerous occasions the name of the "legendary warrior" was shown as Liu Sheng. But in the center of the village, there is a statue of him, and his name is inscribed to be Liu Qing. Close pronunciation, but very, very different when written down.

Factual Mistake
Below the Great Wall of China there is a monument, which upon Sidhul's arrival was introduced by village leaders to be something like "the tombstone of Liu Sheng the great warrior". But actually what inscribed on the monuments actually means "The Greatwall: Keystone Historical Site of Hebei Province".
This is the first Indian film to be shot in China.

This is the first film where the Chinese government allowed for a fight scene to be shot on top of the Great Wall.

The Great Wall fight scene was shot in seven days. It was originally planed to be shot in 20 days but the Chinese government would only allow for seven days on account of tourism.

Akshay Kumar is a big fan of co-star Chia-Hui Liu, and has watched Liu's The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978) about 100 times.
