Goofs:
Factual Mistake
Hrithik Roshan has naturally been gifted with eleven fingers. However, the child artist who plays him in childhood, is shown with normal ten fingers.

Factual Mistake
When Anjali's son performs the Indian National Anthemn, impromptu at an English school function, the crowd automatically stands to attention as a sign of respect. However, English people are largely unfamiliar with the Indian National Anthemn, so would not have understood it's significance.

Errors in Geography
In the storyline, the Raichand offices and main home are supposedly located in India, but the offices shown are clearly located at Canary Wharf in London and the main home shown is actually Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire. The helicopters used to transport people supposedly in India, clearly have British registrations shown.

Continuity
Before the song "You Are My Soniya", when Poo is hitting on Rohan, she is wearing two different shoes. Then, in the song, she is wearing two of the same shoes.

Character Error
The trend-setting Pooja's nickname at her English school is "Poo", a name that would've brought her much ridicule rather than idolization, as the word "Poo" is everyday English slang for excrement.

Character Error
Years later, when Rohan meets Pooja again, after he recites the tongue twister "Chandu ka Chacha," he says he finally got it. But he forgets to say the line "chandni raat mein," so he doesn't get it right.
Trivia:
The film was the highest-grossing Indian film ever outside India, until its record was broken by director Karan Johar's next directorial, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006).

The film was the most expensive Indian movie at the time of its release.

After watching Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan play the reconciliation scene, Hrithik Roshan was so impressed and intimidated by the acting that he was unable to complete his own shot. He had to do it the next day after Amitabh had calmed him down and reassured him that everything would be fine.

Abhishek Bachchan had shot a cameo role for the film, but later asked for his scene to be removed.

The song "It's Raining Men" was used in the film without permission from the right holders. Director Karan Johar was sued in a UK court and had to pay for infringement.
