Hum Tum is a fun-filled film and has several hidden references to Rishi Kapoor's yesteryear hit Bobby. Rishi plays Saif Ali Khan's father in the movie and is seen humming the song, 'Main shayar toh nahi.' Also when Rishi Kapoor meets Kirron Kher in the film, she tells him that he can call her Bobby. However the actor retorts saying that he would call her Dimple. It was Dimple Kapadia who played the title role of Bobby in the film.

Hum Tum was a hit at the box office and made Saif Ali Khan a bankable name. However, the makers had different plans for the movie. Apparently, the makers of Hum Tum had started off with a very long title, which was Na Jane Kab Pyar Ho Gaya. However, it was later changed to a short and sweet sounding Hum Tum. Also, when the film started off there was apparently a cameo offered to Lara Dutta. However, according to IMDb, the actress was busy shooting for Khakee and hence had to opt out.

Jimmy Sheirgill plays a supporting role in Hum Tum. His character in the film goes to pick up Kirron Kher and Rani Mukerji at the airport. While in the car, they listen to some music. And the song that plays is 'Andekhi anjaani si' from Mujhse Dosti Karoge! This was also Kunal Kohli's film. The director has taken an almost unnoticeable reference from his previous movie. Mujhse Dosti Karoge! also starred Rani Mukerji in the lead role.

Saif Ali Khan plays a very quirky character in the film sporting colourful clothes and funky hairdos. One of Saif's dialogues in the film was, "This is my Tom Cruise look." Apparently, there is a story behind the same. According to IMDb, one of the assistants had said that one of the looks was like that of Tom Cruise. Director Kunal Kohli heard it and decided to make it a part of the script. While Saif didn't seem to be in support of it, Kohli managed to convince him.
