There is a reference by Vinod (Naseeruddin Shah) early in the movie, to borrowing money from Kundan Shah. Kundan Shah
is the name of the director. This is a reference to the money borrowed (or lent to them) by NFDC (National Film Development Corporation). The movie was the winning entry of a Script writing contest, organized by NFDC. It ultimately ended up costing more than the sanctioned amount of Rs.700,000. See more
