Bhiku Mhatre (Manoj Bajpai) decides to kill Gurunarayan (Raju Mavani) upon the advice of Satya. Bhiku's mentor Bhau loses his cool when he comes to know of it and pounces on Bhiku saying he should have asked him first
"poochhne kaa naa mere ko" he says in a condescending manner.
Bhiku is at a loss to respond. Satya comes to his aid with
"poochhne ke liye zindaa rehnaa zaroorii hotaa hai"
"पूछने के लिये ज़िन्दा रहना ज़रूरी होता है"
So if your boss questions any decision of yours which has been taken in a crisis and says you should have checked with him/her first, you can use this line.
