Trivia

According to the making-of documentary "Mahabharat ki Mahabharat," Mukesh Khanna was initially selected for the role of Drona, but was later re-cast as Bheeshma after producer B.R. Chopra saw him in full costume and make-up for the role of Drona and uttered, in Hindi, "This is our Bheeshma." See more »

Quotes

Karna: Do you know that I have two sweethearts?
Duryodhana: Really? Who are they? If necessary, I will kidnap them to get them for you!
Karna: They are not girls, my friend - besides, I can only get one of them and not the other!
Duryodhana: What do you mean?
Karna: It is simple - one is the death of Arjuna, the other is my own death.
