Hrithik Roshan was not able to reduce his weight enough for the role of a young adult with the mind of an 11-year-old because he was shooting other films at the same time. The problem was solved with baggy clothes that hid his real proportions and a special hairstyle that made his face look thinner.

The makers of the movie had shot two different endings. In the alternate ending, the alien takes away all the powers with him. Rohit looks up to the sky and says thank you. But the director felt that the audiences would respond better to a happy ending. So the ending with Rohit getting back the powers was shot.
