Hum Apke Hain Kaun was the first film which could be seen with whole family, A Wedding Entertainer. And “Indeed my First film that seen in Theaters with Family”, Priyanka Raina adds.

Also was the first film where songs could not be skipped because songs had the continuity of story attached to it.

Also the most important was the TUFFY. “There were two Tuffies on the set, One TUFFY was lazy and use to sit so sitting shots we use to take from him. Other TUFFY only use to run, so running shots use to take from Him” Madhuri Dixit Adds

Last but Not Least , RITA of Hum Apke Hain Kaun played by Sahila Chaddha who opens the movie with the Opening Shot in Cricket Ground. Also has some important Key Factors which became a Trademark like “Girl Played Salman” , SHAKUNTALA and the Salt in HALWA .
