Kareena Kapoor joked that she deserves some of the credit for making Indian Railways financially viable. In her appearance on the comedy court Case Toh Banta Hai, the actress claimed that Indian Railways’ income increased after the release of her film Jab We Met (2007).

She said that the song also boosted sales of harem pants, which she wore during her scenes in trains and railway stations. Kareena said that after she played Geet, the sale of harem pants and revenues of Indian Railways both have increased by the way.
Kareena also used a line from the film when Varun Sharma, who played her lawyer, asked her to be more serious about her court appointment. She asked will she teach me. She also said that she is a Sikh woman from Bathinda, she knows everything from catching a train to winning a case.
Case To Banta Hai starred Riteish Deshmukh as a public advocate, Kusha Kapila as a judge and Varun Sharma as a defense lawyer. It featured comedians Gopal Datt, Paritosh Tripathi, Monica Murthy, Sanket Bhosle, Sugandha Mishra and Siddharth Sagar as witnesses.
