- This is the first time Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai will work together, after many unsuccessful attempts. Aishwarya Rai was supposed to act in Krrish opposite Roshan but couldn't commit due to date problems. They were also supposed to be in a movie directed by Tanuja Chandra but that did not work out either. Both of them are playing villains in this movie.
- There had been much speculation in the media that both the lead actresses, Aishwarya Rai and Bipasha Basu, have been convinced to wear bikinis in the movie. director Sanjay Gadhvi had categorically stated that Aishwarya Rai is not sporting any bikini in the movie and its only Bipasha Basu.
- Shooting was disrupted when the studio the Yash Raj staff erected was destroyed in the floods that hit Mumbai on July 26, 2005. Subsequently, shooting took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

- A theatrical trailer of the film was released with Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna which released worldwide on August 11, 2006.
- In a recent interview with Sanjay Gadhvi, he has confirmed that there will not be a single frame of John Abraham in the film. There is a retarded rumor going around, that he might be wearing a Hrithik mask ala Mission Impossible.
