Personal Quote:

About Sarkar (2005): "The film is not based on Bal Thackeray, but the similarities are there - Thackeray wields enormous power, has personal charisma and is trusted by lakhs of people. And it's no longer _The Godfather (1972)_, not really... The entire script has been changed. And apart from the two Bachchans, Amitabh and Abhishek, I've decided to cast new non-star faces from theater." See more »

Trivia:

Frequently casts Urmila Matondkar in his films - His first venture with Urmila was Drohi and since then he has directed 9 Hindi films out of which he has cast her in 7 of them (excluding the special appearence in 'Company') See more »
