The movie is supposed to take place in Pakistan. However, when George is going from airport to his village and they stop at a roadside restaurant (where Sajid sees camels), crates of cold drinks marked "Verka" can be seen piled up against the wall. "Verka" is a brand of dairy products from Punjab, India.

On first arrival in Pakistan, George and Saj step out of what appears to be an Airbus A320 series aircraft. These aircraft were first delivered to airlines in 1988, 12 years after the storyline.
