Awards
The film has won the following awards since its release:

2000 National Film Awards

Won – Silver Lotus Award – Best Supporting Actor – Atul Kulkarni
Won – Silver Lotus Award – Best Costume Design – Sarika

All actors including Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukherji, Saurabh Shukla and Atul Kulkarni dubbed their own voice in Tamil.
Rather than shoot one version of the film in Tamil before dubbing it for its Hindi release, director Kamal Haasan opted to film two separate versions back-to-back – once in Tamil, and again a reshoot in Hindi. Differences between the two releases are minimal, with only a few pieces of dialogue being given to different characters and with a greater amount of English dialogue in the Tamil version.
The film’s title references popular belief that Gandhi’s dying words were “Hey, Ram” (“Oh, God”), however others claim he instead died instantly. In this movie’s enactment of the assassination, the words are not spoken.
Shruti Haasan (daughter of Kamal Haasan), makes a cameo appearance as Vallabhai Patel’s daughter.
The songs in the movie were composed by Ilaiyaraaja, which were highly acclaimed and ahead of times. Songs composed by another music director were already composed and shot. Ilaiyaraaja had to compose and score for the pre-shot song scenes.
This was the first Indian movie for which the background score was done overseas (at Budapest, Hungary) and more importantly, using the prestigious Budapest Symphony Orchestra, with the budget being Rs. 40 lakhs approximately. The original score running more than hour was written by Ilaiyaraaja in 10 days.
The pistol used by Saket Ram in the movie is a Mauser C96
This film has a much talked about kiss involving Rani Mukherji and Kamal Hassan.
Gandhi’s great grandson makes a cameo appearance at the end of the film.
