About halfway through the film one character says a dialogue, while launching his cigars in India, which goes like "'Beedi Jalaai le' ke is 'vishal' desh mein, cigar 'gulzar'" (In this 'Vishal' (huge) country of 'Beedi jalaai le' (smoking), cigar is 'Gulzar' (flourishing or pleasant)). This dialogue is a cleverly put tribute to the following: Vishal Bhardwaj
- the music director and producer of this film (and a good friend of Anurag Kashyap
), the lyrics writer of the film Gulzar
(a close friend of both Vishal Bharadwaj and Anurag Kashyap) and the song 'Beedi Jalaai Le' from Vishal's then recently released movie Omkara See more
