Hrithik Roshan turned down the role of Karan.
Continuity: In the scene where Sue says 'Undher say awaaz aye gee' and the Sukhi burps, Karan throws his cigarette on the floor and steps on it (you hear him do it). Then in the very next shot he does it all over again and the 'under say awaaz' scene is still going on.
I'm proud of my country.
Really, exactly what are you proud of? The Poverty?
No, he's proud of the Unemployment
Or are you proud of the Corruption?
No country is perfect, Kran we have to work to make it perfect.
Tell you what Ajay, you go on trying to make this country perfect, once I get into a college, i'm pushing of to America, nothing's ever going to get better in this garbage dump.

More Than A Wake-up Call, A Thought Provoking Movie For Our Times, 31 January 2006
skfazli from United States
If I wait any more to say all the things I want to say about this great
soul-stirring movie I will never be able to say it.It is the best use
of the film medium that I have seen in a long long time.Here in the
west we have virtually abandoned good cinema.Where are our Capras,our
Wilders, our Hitchcocks, our David Leans? We make trivia now that
neither entertain nor enlighten.To put it very bluntly, we make utter
trash.Good work in the world is being done elsewhere, especially in
India where a Bhansali stretches the limits of cinematic expression,
where a new Wilder emerges in the shape of Anees Bazmee, where Shaad
Ali springs a surprise with a Bunty Aur Bubbly,where out of nowhere
comes a Guru Dutt in the garb of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and takes us
to a new level of awareness and self-discovery through cinema in a
stunning masterpiece called Rang De Basanti.
I challenge anyone to name a film made anywhere in the last fifteen
years or so to hold a candle to this one.It is simply awesome.As an
entertainer it is superb, as purposeful film it goes even further.As a
fearless, bold crusader for just causes it is beyond compare.The whole
team deserves to be congratulated.
Apart from the tremendous contribution made by the writers and the
director of the movie, the people who need to be singled out and
applauded for the high quality of their work are Aamir Khan(his best
role yet),Soha Ali Khan(who finally claims our attention with this role
and is destined to be as distinguished as her mother Sharmila Tagore).
Waheeda Rehman makes you feel that Guru Dutt is back directing her from
heaven.Kirron Kher who is improving with every picture.And all the boys
from Kunal Kapoor to Atul Kulkarni.All have turned in amazing
performances.After Devdas and Munna Bhai MBBS, Binod Pradhan has once
again shown that as an ace cameraman he is second to none.And what can
you say about A.R. Rahman?This time he even sings like a pro.He is
paired here for the first time with Prasoon Joshi who makes you think
of Majrooh Sultanpuri.But before I forget, I must mention Alice Patten.
She is a joy to behold.And she makes a great pair with Aamir.
The film does not have a single dull moment in it.It can be repeated
again and again with increasing returns to the viewer.It is a crossover
film and needs to be seen by every one in the world.Its publicity and
promotion should be geared to that.It should be sent to every
international film festival in the world and should be India's entry to
the Oscars this year.
