The movies stars such young stars as Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Minissha Lamba, and also an experienced and sexy star such as Bipasha Basu. The movie, produced by Aditya Chopra, was directed by Siddharth Anand, an experienced director (who had some successes such as Salaam Namaste (2005) and also a failure in the form of Ta Ra Rum Pum (released in 2007)). The selection of the leading ladies for the film took a fair amount of time, with some of the actresses being considered including Preity Zinta, Katrina Kaif, Amrita Rao. However, even though the story included 3 actresses, the story weaved in and out, and there were almost no scenes where the actresses were in the same scenes, keeping the spotlight firmly on Ranbeer Kapoor, since he was there in all the scenes.
