An eight-year-old boy is thought to be a lazy trouble-maker, until the new art teacher has the patience and compassion to discover the real problem behind his struggles in school.
A song accompanying the scene in which Ishaan's mother is watching home videos of her son was also cut, and replaced with background music after test audiences expressed their opposition to yet another song.
Ram Shankar Nikumbh:
lf you fancy racing, breed racehorses, dammit, not children.
When Ram Shankar( Aamir Khan) ask Ishaan's father Mr Awasthi to read the name of the video game, he responds that he can not read because it is in Chinese. In reality it is in Japanese (Chinese does not have Furigana and Katakana). But it maybe possible that Mr Awasthi couldn't distinguish between Chinese and Japanese.
The opening credits rolls after few minutes of the film and consists of animated sequences (in order to portray the main character's imaginary world).
