Speaking about his journey so far, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said, “It has been an incredible 25 years indeed! Of all the films I’ve made so far, every moment has been touching – the colors you see on the wall, the songs, the backgrounds, every thread on every outfit, every dialogue, lighting, every carving and so much in the architecture. Something has been thought. That’s why I like to call them ‘handmade films’. These handmade movies would not have been possible without the effort of every person behind the film who has put in their hard work. I have enjoyed every minute of making films in these 25 years… and there is still a long way to go.”

The film was also nominated for the British Academy of Film and Television Awards for Best Film Not in the English Language. His Big B and Rani Mukerji-starrer ‘Black’, inspired by the life of Helen Keller, was ranked fifth in the Times’ “10 Best Films of the Year 2005” (Europe) worldwide.
