We can all agree that film-making is one hell of a task. From finding the right characters to production, a director and crew needs to take care of a lot of things, so there's a slight chance they can end up missing small small details that are later pointed out by the audience and are ready to take rounds of the Internet. Hence, all the hard work goes in the pooper right when you find out a glaring error in the plot-line of your favourite movie.
And then you CAN'T unsee it!
We've comprised you a list of Bollywood movie mistakes that'll make you question everything.
We know, you're praying, your favourite film doesn't make it to the list.
1. Anushka Sharma's intro scene in Jab Tak Hai Jaan
Anushka Sharma takes off her clothes to dive into the river. But wait... the entry scene shows her standing on a rock, in the middle of the river and she's dry. Then, how the hell did she get there without getting drenched?
Showing her damp body would have been more convincing, maybe?
2. Preity Zinta was pregnant for 2 years in Krrish.
Hrithik who played Rohit in the movie had been in Singapore for the last two years when they showed his wife, Nisha (Preity Zinta) pregnant, back in India. The audience is curious to know how the wife, who has been in India all this while got pregnant? Or wait, was she cheating on him? That's a discussion we wanna save for later. 😂
3. When Kareena Kapoor's on-screen fiancé in 3 Idiots was shown getting ready inside their wedding venue but makes a shocking entry from the front gate when she was about to run away.
Yet, he enters the wedding venue from the main entrance, in front of the guests?!
4. The cellular towers in the 90s in Haider.
The movie based on the Kashmir riots in the mid 90's. And in one of its songs, Bismil, you can see a cellular tower in the background, most of the time. Hence, the curiosity, there weren't any such towers in Kashmir, back then. You'd spot a similar mistake in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, but more on that later.
5. There were 6 balls in an over, instead of 5 in Lagaan.
Now you must be waondering how that is a mistake. Well, back in 1892, England only allowed 5 balls, per over and not 6!We know you're mind-blown, already!
6. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
Here comes the mistake we mentioned in #4. Another cellular tower in the 60s. Can this qualify for a sci-fi movie, then? NO! 😑
7. When Kangana boards the wrong train in Queen.
Rani (Kangana) is supposed to take the train from Paris (France) to Amsterdam (Netherlands) Whereas, the movie features the train is a local sprinter which operates only within Netherlands and cannot cross International borders.
8. The irrelevant headline in the newspapers featuring Ranbir on front page (but talking about Shah Rukh Khan for some reason 😂) in Rockstar.
In the beginning of the song "Sadda Haq", the newspaper clippings showing the controversies around Jordan's (Ranbir Kapoor's character's life), but if you take a closer look at it, it's actually read some news about SRK.
Turns out, they just took a newspaper and changed the headline for this scene. Now wait and see this other news clipping in the same song sequence.
The news description on the left says, "The Government has accepted the resignation of industrialist Anand Mahindra as an independent director of the Air India Board . . . "
Now the next clipping is actually a news clip about Chhavi Rajawat, the Sarpanch of an Indian village named Soda. This piece is talking about the journey she has been through and her contributions to the society. I don't need to mention again and again as you can very well see what all these other clips were actually about:
It is about a murder case while this next one is epic. It is about the India vs Pakistan World Cup semi-finals 2011 and it says, "While just about everybody may be looking for an inventive excuse to bunk work this Wednesday and watch the India vs Pakistan World cup semi-final to . . . "

9. When Shah Rukh saved the same pair of shoes for about 10 years in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.
Image 1: Where Shah Rukh jumps out of a helicopter as a bachelor in the beginning of the movie.
Image 2: 10 years later after separating from his parents, he wears the same pair of shoes while bumping into them in a mall in London. Or should we say fake London. Cos everything suddenly feels like a lie. 😢
10. When the iconic climax of this movie had a teeny tiny error.
The climax of the movie, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge takes place in a station named 'Apta'. You'd see the sign board in a few shots towards the end of the film. The problem is, that Apta is a station near Mumbai the story was about Punjab! wasn't it?
