When you watch the film, it's not hard to imagine the amount of time and effort Imtiaz must've taken to develop such a brilliant script. With so much detailing to the minute characters, Jab We Met became an instant hit among the masses.

#1. Despite all the critical success he had with films like 'Rockstar',' Cocktail', 'Love Aaj Kal' and 'Tamasha', the only movie Imtiaz Ali won a Filmfare Award was for 'Jab We Met', and that too not for direction of the film but for the dialogues he penned dow
#2. Kareena Kapoor Khan as the female lead ,Geet, stole the show and became one of the most sought after female actresses in the industry. She gained a huge fan following for the portrayal of the feisty and lively Geet. Her dialogue 'Main Apni Favourite Hoon' (I'm my own Favourite) became a trend among the youth especially girls
#3. Though Shahid and Kareena’s relationship went through the bender during the course of the shoot, they had to keep their personal issues aside so as to keep their onscreen chemistry going and made their breakup official only once the movie was in theatres.
#4. The film won numerous awards and honours, and is hailed as one of the best romantic films of Bollywood ever. Jab We Met also pushed the lead (Kareena and Shahid) pair's career forward as many media outlets ranked the pair the best romantic onscreen couple
#5. The makers were originally torn for choice between ‘Punjab Mail’ and ‘Ishq via Bathinda’ for the movie’s title, but ultimately settled on Jab We Met. The option Jab We Met was suggested by Shahid’s father, Pankaj Kapur.
#6. After the mammoth success of the film, many filmmakers decided to remake the film in their regional language, but the film was only made in Tamil as 'Kanden Kadhalai'
