SoundtrackEdit

Anu Malik was credited as the composer, though except for one composition, every other track was sourced from Southern hits, predominantly A. R. Rahman's soundtrack for the film's original Tamil version.

The song "Jhoom Ke Dil Ne" (which is on the soundtrack but not picturised in the film) is the Hindi version of the Telugu song "Jummani Tummeda" from Mechanic Alludu, featuring music by Raj-Koti.
