    Chitrashi Rawat, who plays Komal Chautala, is from Dehradun and has played hockey as a left striker for the Uttaranchal State Team for 7 years. When CHAK DE! INDIA (’07) was released, she was studying at St. Andrew's College in Mumbai. Sagarika Ghatge, who plays Preety Sabarwal, has played hockey in her school for 4 years. While they’re fighting on screen, off-screen, on the sets, the two were best of friends and used to hang out together the entire day.

    You may have heard the chant "NASRUN MINNALLAHE WAH FATAHUN KAREEB" in Chak De! India from SRK, it did not come from Adtiya Chopra or Shimit Amin and not also from the writer Jaideep Sahni. It has been Shah Rukh Khan's pet chant all his life, and has also past on to his friends.
