In 2011, in its initial scripting stage, Rajkumar Hirani named the film 'Talli' then changed it to 'Ek Tha Talli' which he actually loved it but later on came to know that 'Ek Tha Tiger' was already in production which was released in 2012. So he dropped the idea and after many titles, he came up with a unique title which only had initials, 'P.K'.

Apparently, for every take, Aamir had to eat a fresh paan to fill his mouth, also before beginning the shoot Aamir would eat at least 10-15 paans to get the right color inside his mouth and on his lips.

They shot the scene, where the Sikh man asks for money, at the same shopping complex that was the setting for the scene in 3 idiots where Rancho gives Pia a demo with the 4 lac watch.
P.K. blinks his eyes several times throughout the film.
Location: PK and Jaggu sitting in the Baoli, after Jaggu starts believing in him after the beggar incident in CP (5 Star dinner party celebrating 75 years of marriage). He says that he believed her because she pent Five thousand Rs. in the temple incident. But actually her purse only had 500 Rs which the priest forcibly put inside the charity box. Even if we add the jail cost, even then the total cost would be 1000 and not 5000.
In her entry scene, Jaggu is shown locking her bike and then she heads towards the concert. After she ruins old guy's suit, Sarfaraz is shown to immediately ride her on the same bike while she was being chased by security guards.
When Jaggu calls her father on video call to tell him about Sarfaraz, her father goes to Tapasvi Maharaj. When he is at home, there may be Wi-Fi for the internet connection. Now, how is the internet working on the laptop when he goes to Tapasvi Maharaj? There is also no dongle or data card plugged into the laptop.
Errors in geography
The TV show at the climax of the movie is scheduled to being at 6PM in New Delhi, where it's dark outside as the sun has already set. A few minutes into the show, the lead character calls the Pakistani Embassy in Belgium, who then calls the 3nd lead character in Pakistan, where we see it's day time. If it's past 6PM in New Delhi, India, it cannot be day time in Pakistan.
At the start of the film, when Jaggu is reciting her story, she mentions that Rajisthan is nearly 5000km far from Belgium; whereas, originally the distance is 6,391 km.
