In real life too, Sanjay had won the award for Munna Bhai MBBS in 2004 and Tabu had presented the trophy to him back then. The same scene has been recreated for the film. the actress is said to have already shot the scene and apparently, Tabu even wore the replica of the peach-coloured salwar kameez and red dupatta that she had worn back in 2004 when she went up on stage to present the award to Dutt.
