The seven-minute song "Do me a favor - let's play Holi" took seven days to film. This was due to a series of factors - the time it took to set up the sets and equipment; the time it took to film the scenes; the time it took to clean up the sets; and one unexpected setback - Priyanka Chopra got electrocuted when she stepped on a loose wire. Fortunately she spent only one night in the hospital.

Akshay Kumar was so touched by the film's father-son subject that he acquired the Mumbai distribution rights of the film. He also insisted that the film be dedicated to his late father Hari Om Bhatia and that each DVD of the film display a letter he had written to his father. Apparently, he got into a clash with the director Vipul Shah over his set conditions, but eventually Shah agreed on all of them.

In order to create awareness about preserving water, he went on to shoot a dry Holi song in one of his later films, Action Replayy. The song was called "Chann ke Mohalla".
