RGV for sure put the bottle there for visual and sound effect of the killing.. but should've kept the bottle from the beginning.

When Sharma asks Malik what will you do now? Malik shoots him and you suddenly see a Beer Bottle behind which blasts indicating bullet passing through Sharma

After Sayeed and Anees, When Malik and Chandu goes to Sharma's place, they see Rathod (inspector who beat up Chandu) collecting cash from Sharma. Before Sharma receives call on his phone, if you notice in the back ground there is no Beer Bottle.
Malayalam film actor Mohanlal's first Hindi movie. Actor 'Vivek Oberoi''s debut movie.

Ram Gopal Varma wanted to do a film with actor Mohanlal. As a fan of Lal, when the part of police officer Srinivasan came along, Varma initially approached him to do the part.

The theme music played throughout the movie is also used in Ram Gopal's later Sarkaar and Sarkaar Raaj. All three movies are based on parallel governments running in Mumbai.

Ajay Devgan in his later Once upon a time in Mumbai, again played a character based on Dawood Ebrahim.

The scene where a Bollywood director is shown on his set is clearly a parody of Karan Johar and his film "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham..." (2001).

Story loosely based on the rift between real life dons Dawood Ibrahim and his protege Chhota Rajan. Mohanlal's character based on Real Life Police Commisioner of Bombay Dhanushkodi Sivanandan.

"Vivek Oberoi" is wearing special makeup in the film which makes his complexion several shades darker than it really is.

Ram Gopal Varma once admitted in a interview that he was inspired by the 1980 release Kalyug starring Shashi Kapoor & Rekha.

Rinke Khanna was the original choice for Saroja.

Ram Gopal Varma originally wanted to make a crime themed film with newcomers, at that time he had a meeting with actor Ajay Devgn, his strong and silent personality really moved Ram Gopal Varma, which made him to cast Ajay as an underworld don and initiated the story thread for this movie.
