Trivia

While filming in some of the more rural villages in India, with Ben Kingsley in full make-up as Gandhi, some of the older members of the communities were confused as they thought they were seeing the real man again.


Quotes

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


Goofs

Whilst it is true that electricity was unavailable to most Indian villages during Mohandas K. Gandhi's lifetime, it can be expected that poles supporting, what seem to be power lines along the railroad right-of-way during Gandhi's tour of India, are instead supporting telegraph lines, some of which were in place as early as the 1850s.


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.
