    The film originally featured a song, 'What the F**k', but the Censor Board of India wouldn't allow the film to be given an U-certificate (equivalent to 'PG'), but an A-certificate (equivalent to 'R'). Therefore wherever the song had the F-word, it was over-toned by a 'scratching of discs' sound, and the film finally got a U/A-certificate.

    Saif Ali Khan was initially offered the role played by John in this movie and Aishwarya was supposed to play the leading lady. But Saif refused the offer because he did not liked to work with Abhishek and Aishwarya in lead roles.

    Karan Johar's close friend Farah Khan, who, till now had choreographed all the songs of his films, could not be a part of the Miami shoot, because of her babies. However Karan and Tarun Mansukhani kept the song "Desi Girl"to be shot in Mumbai and choreographed by Farah.

    The team also shot an additional song ("Maa Da Ladla"- remix) for the promotion and end credits in Mumbai and was choreographed by Feroz (one of Farah ex-assistant)

    Dostana was the first film produced by Karan's father, Yash Johar (and directed by Raj Khosla) nearly 30 years ago!

    On her way to the shoot, Shilpa Shetty's entire wardrobe was misplaced in London, and as a result she had to buy her dresses and cosmetics once again. After the shoot, they found all the seven suitcases, which probably will be used in another movie soon!
