After a short while the duo are apprehended by Police Inspector Narsimha, questioned, and after they agree to cooperate to bring down Shambhu, are let go. The two succeed in assisting the police arrest Shambhu, but they themselves are arrested, tried in Court, and sentenced to a year in jail.

Trivia:
Although Ram Gopal Varma faced heavy criticism and resistance from many of the cast and crew of the original Sholay (1975) (Ramesh Sippy, Jaya Bhaduri, Dharmendra and Hema Malini), Amitabh Bachchan wholeheartedly supported the project and also fulfilled his long-held dream of playing Gabbar Singh.

Priyanka Kothari, like her character Ghungroo, is a fan of Rajnikanth.

When the movie was announced several actors showed interest in playing Thakur. Dharmendra, Anupam Kher were some of them but it was Ram Gopal Varma's decision to cast Mohanlal as the new Thakur "Narishma".

During the song "Mehbooba Mehbooba," Babban (Amitabh Bachchan) is heard reciting verse from the romance Kabhie Kabhie (1976), which Bachchan starred in.

This movie's working title was "Ram Gopal Varma Ke Sholay".

Katrina Kaif was signed first for the role of Radha. However, upon writing the script, Ram Gopal Varma rewrote the role of Radha into a deviation named Devi. Katrina felt she was unable to act the role, and Ram Gopal Varma felt that Sushmita Sen fit the role better.

Abhishek Bachchan was attached to play the role of "Veeru", but dropped out and the role went to Ajay Devgn. Abhishek is now playing the Gypsy Singer during the Mehbooba song.

It took 50 trials before Amitabh Bachchan decided upon a light brown colored soft contact lens for the left eye and blue for the right (applied each morning by his family's eye surgeon, Dr Himanshu Mehta).

Although Ram Gopal Varma faced criticism from many of the cast and crew of the original Sholay (Ramesh Sippy, Jaya Bhaduri, Dharmendra and Hema Malini), he had the support of Amitabh Bachchan, who was fulfilling a long-held dream to play Gabbar Singh.

Priyanka Kothari, like her character Ghungroo, is a fan of Rajnikanth.

When the movie was announced several actors showed interest in playing Thakur. Dharmendra, Anupam Kher were some of them but it was Ram Gopal Varma's decision to cast Mohanlal as the new Thakur "Narishma".

The first Indian movie to make it to the IMDb bottom 100 list.
