Imtiaz Ali in no hurry to title his Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma-starrer film
The shoot of Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming romance-drama featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Shrama is about to culminate, but the filmmaker is yet to zero in on a title.
Recently, Ali rubbished reports that his film, earlier rumoured to be called The Ring, was set to be called Rehnuma. Even as the film nears its August release, Ali is far from worried. “We don’t have a title because it’s not important. We will need one when we start pitching it. We are extremely eager and more curious than anybody else to know what the title of our film will be,” he says, assuring fans that the team will arrive at a decision soon.
Salman Khan, who unveiled the film’s poster a few months ago, had said in jest: “@iamsrk ki film aa rahi hai. Date maine decide kar di hai. Title tum log decide kardo. Best of luck (sic).” The music rights of the film, which sees SRK in the role of a tour guide, was recently sold for Rs 15 crore.
That the film will lock horns with Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha at the box-office doesn’t bother Ali. “I don’t look at it as a clash. As a filmmaker, my job is to make a good film and that’s where it all ends,” he says.
