In the film's trailer, you can see actors Riteish Deshmukh and Karan Johar in a conversation where Riteish calls him Karan, but Johar responds by saying that he is Arjun. To this, Riteish breaks out laughing, and calling himself Rakhee (the actor played who the role of Karan-Arjun's mother) begins to sing one of the 1995 film's iconic songs, 'Yeh bandhan to pyar ka bandhan hai'.
