Deepika Padukone was given the first choice of playing Meera or Veronica. She chose the latter because Meera's character was similar to her earlier character Meera in Love Aaj Kal. Later Diana Penty got Meera's role. Interestingly, earlier in their modeling career, Diana had replaced Deepika as Maybelline's brand ambassador. See more »
In a scene, Gautam is shown dialing a phone number from his iPhone. But when he takes the phone to his ears, the screen doesn't get switched off as it would happen in any iPhone on dialing and bringing it close to ears. See more »
The only good movie in the Indian cinema this year! Either Indian don't know what a good movie is or they just want the Body Guard or Rowdy Rathor crap (which I haven't even see, but my intellect tell they were crap). That being said, the major major epic element in this movie was Strong Story Line!! There are many movie released with shitty story line & for a movie to transcend a Strong Stoy Line is a must. Cocktail's script even made the new comer, Diana Penty, look like a great diva (she was the bomb in the movie). I have stopped watching a lot of Indian movies, because I know it's going to be crap & I was intrigued for writing this review because of the rating/reviews others had posted, which was is a total unjust towards a great piece piece of art. That being said I would say watch the movie, albeit it's not in the theaters anymore. I watched it twice in theaters & for me two watch a movie second time is pretty rare, unless I know I'll be getting my bucks worth.
