    Production

    Prakash Jha was trying to raise funds for Damul (which he made next year) but failed to find financier's because of its bold subject matter. He then narrated the outline of Hip Hip Hurray to producer Manmohan Shetty. Shetty liked the idea of a sports films and with a proposed cast that included Anil Kapoor and Shabana Azmi, Jha was ready to make it. But after 25 days before the principle photography was to commence, Anil Kapoor backed out and Azmi followed suit. Jha then came up with a different cast of Raj Kiran, Deepti Naval and Nikhil Bhagat. Gulzar has written the screenplay, dialogues as well as lyrics of the film.

    Due to the small budget, the entire climax was shot with a single camera and this led to every single shot being filmed three or four times to give the feel of multiple angles.
