Whilst shooting a scene in Rajkot, shabana Azmi asked Amitabh Bachchan if he did anything when he was a member of Parliament. "Were you a catalyst in changing anything? Did you bring in any law? "Amitabh replied, "Once I went for dinner at Rashtrapati Bhavan, I saw everyone eating on plates that had the national emblem as part of the design. I did not like it. I raised the point in Parliament that you can't demean the national emblem, it's not right.' Soon after a law was passed that there would be no national emblem on the plates. Amitabh told Shabana that this thought was inspired by his father.
