1. The scene where Shah Rukh Khan walks into a lounge (as himself in the film) and meets Farhan Akhtar for the first time, he is shown to be accompanied by a man of his age. This guy is none other than Mushtaq Sheikh who is Shahrukh Khan's age-old friend in real life and has written quite a few books on him apart from penning Om Shanti Om (2007) and also acting in it. In a way, he is related to the plot. When Shah Rukh Khan tells Farhan Akhtar that he should not be forgetting his friends from the old times, a message is being conveyed because the superstar himself is shown to be in the company of those (read Mushtaq) who have been with him through his good and bad times.
2. In the movie after the character of Farhan Akhtar becomes successful, and a party is thrown to welcome the new star in the industry, Karan Johar delivers a very succinct dialogue that's symptomatic of the state of affairs of the industry. He points out to Hrithik Roshan, by giving the examples of living legendary actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, that it is in the situations, where the established stars refuse to work outside their images, that an opportunity is created for a new face to be launched in the industry. These moments of disruption, in reality too, have created new stars in the industry that have launched themselves into the dizzying heights of new success.
3. In his cameo, the actor Aamir Khan makes a spoof about himself. In one of the first scenes of the film, he is shown to be giving this 'perfect shot' for a Rajkumar Hirani film. All so intense and into the character, he returns to the monitor, only to sound a little unhappy over the way he gave his shot. He and Raju acknowledge though that the subtle touch that he gave to the scene while adjusting his hat was quite thoughtful! All this was meant to be an exaggerated take on things.
4. The writer/director Anurag Kashyap is playing a frustrated writer, in Luck By Chance. Someone who is ridiculed as an 'Institute' when he tries to write something that defies the Bollywood clichés. The producer also mocks him by saying that he doesn't want to make the movie for a film festival, which is a dig at Mr. Anurag Kashyap whose movies, which mostly get banned in India or struggle to get a good producer, work quite well at various prestigious film festivals (e.g. Black Friday (2004), Paanch (2003)). Anurag is shown as a writer who is forced to do DVD rip-offs and not complain when changes are asked to be made, something that cleverly reflects on his career as a writer so far.
5. In one of the first scenes of the film, Aamir Khan is shown to be giving a shot for an imaginary Rajkumar Hirani film. This is a nod to the fact that the next venture of both Aamir and Rajkumar Hirani after Luck by Chance is together for the movie 3 Idiots (2009)
6. Abhishek Bachchan is someone who avoids controversies, more so if he has to accept a movie that has been rejected by someone else. This is what he does to the character of Rommy Rolly (Rishi Kapoor) in his cameo in the film and politely refuses to be a part of his film. And when he says 'Daddy says Hi!' it brings the real life touch to the proceedings because this means 'End of conversation'
7..Ranbir Kapoor in his cameo as himself is a rising star whose stocks are on a high, he is shown to be this sweet-talking youngster who is embarrassed enough to be saying no to an old-time director and even hails him as his father figure. However, in the moment of reckoning when he has to take a call on signing a film, he comes up with an age-old excuse - 'No Dates'. He doesn't say no, he just says - "Let's start working on the film in 2015"
8. John Abraham in his cameo says quite ironically when he mouths the dialogue 'Ab main Kuch Hatke Karna Chahta hoon (I want to do something different) while refusing Rommy Rolly. He had recently done a strange role in the kafkaesque movie No Smoking (2007) and it is known that he chooses the films that he truly believes, he can do justice to. Thus portraying his real self on screen.
9. In a casual conversation, a struggling newcomer actor asks an Assistant Director if he can get a chance to act in a Bhatt film because "Bhatts are always giving chance to newcomers like himself", which points to the fact that Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt are reputed of starring newcomers in every film they produce. Also, the actor Emraan Hashmi's name is mentioned when the AD invites Farhan (the newcomer) on the sets saying Emraan is doing a smooch scene yet again pointing at the "serial kisser" reputation that Emraan has created of himself lately.
10. Saif Ali Khan was signed for Farhan's role but opted out.
11. In a scene where Sona (Konkona Sen Sharma), while looking at Vikram's photographs, asks Vikram (Farhan Akhtar) who is the photographer and he casually replies "Hai koi Abheet karke" (There's a guy called Abheet). This is a reference to Abheet Gidwani who is the still photographer of the film. He made the publicity stills of the film.
12. This film has a unique distinction of bringing together the actors Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan in the same film, although their roles were very small cameos and they don't even share any scene on screen but this has never happened before this movie and is very unlikely to happen too, given the busy schedules and the huge stardom of both the actors.
