Not many will know this but the director of Abhishek-Rani's 40 crore earner BUNTY AUR BABLI, Shaad Ali is the son of former Kanpur MP Subhashini Ali. Shaad calls the owner (Prakash Pandey) of the famous shop 'Thaggu Ke Laddoo', 'mama' (maternal uncle). One of the important sequences of BUNTY AUR BABLI was shot at the famous sweetmeet shop of Kanpur and even Abhishek addressed Pandey as 'mama' and is believed to have told him that he will order his delicacy for his marriage.

The owner on hearing about the wedding of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, reached Bombay with 51 kilograms of his famous delicacy 'Thaggu Ke Laddoo' and was given extensive media coverage. Unfortunately the security staff of the two Bachchan residences did not allow Pandey inside. A disappointed Pandey fed the sweets to the media people and security staff outside the two Bachchan residences, 'Prateeksha' and 'Jalsa' and left for home.
