Trivia

Ben Kingsley learned to spin cloth in the same way that Gandhi did. He didn't find this to be particularly challenging. Instead, the real problem he encountered was to spin and talk at the same time which he had major difficulties trying to master.


Quotes

Hindu: He will be saying prayers in the garden. Just follow the others.


Goofs

In the movie, The South African police were shown both arresting and beating Gandhi for burning passes during his protest of the Pass Law. Although Mohandas K. Gandhi and his fellow protesters were arrested for burning the passes, in reality neither Gandhi or any of the protesters were ever beaten by the police during the protest.


Crazy Credits

The producers express their thanks in the closing credits to The National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of India for the use of its grounds and exteriors for filming locations.
