The film has been rated PG-13 in the USA by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) for suggestive references.
Barbie's costumes are designed by Oscar-winner Jacqueline Durran, who also designed the costumes for Little Women (2019).
The font used in the film was used for all Barbie dolls and related merchandise from 1975 to 1991.
Ryan Gosling accepted the role of Ken after seeing his daughter’s Ken doll lying face down in the mud, next to a squashed lemon. He then took an image of the doll, sent it to Gerwig and said, "I shall be your Ken, his story must be told."
Margot Robbie allegedly requested Gerwig to let her have a slide in Barbie's house that would go from the bedroom to the swimming pool.
The movie was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and starred two legendary actors, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan, in lead roles.
