There's an inside story, an incident which happened between the Director, Tigmanshu Dhulia and the lead, Irrfan Khan. Both of them were classmates in National School of Drama, and there Tigmanshu had promised Irrfan that one day, he will try and get Irrfan one national award for acting. In the following phase of life, Irrfan got bored of mediocre television roles which he was getting to play, and expressed his desire to quit acting to Tigmanshu, on which the latter said, "Don't you remember? I'm gonna get you a national award, come let's make a film together." That's when Haasil (2003) happened, in which Irrfan's acting was praised critically and then, Irrfan won the National award for acting for Paan Singh Tomar, both the films were directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia.
