"Receiving a cinema ticket of Metro theatre for my film, Taal (1999), with the director's name printed on it, recognising the creative team of a motion picture, was a great surprise for me. I am confident that a time will come when movie directors will be recognised for their contributions to cinematic magic again."

- Subhash Ghai

Taal was the first Hindi film to be shown on a massive imax screen in a Cincinnati, Ohio imax theatre. The theatre was filled, and the audience was utterly enthralled.
