Anurag Kashyap announces title of film featuring Taapsee Pannu, Bhumi Pednekar
According to reports, the upcoming film was originally titled ‘Womaniya’ and now has been renamed as ‘Saand Ki Aankh’. This comes after a titles right dispute.
Anurag took to his Twitter handle to share the news, announcing the name of the film. He wrote, “So we have decided to not pay the extortion sum of 1 crore to @PritishNandy. He can sit on the title and warm it and hope for it to hatch into something worthwhile for his company for once.”
“while we go ahead with what @taapsee @bhumipednekar @tushar1307 @nidhiparmar @RelianceEnt @prakashjha27 @ItsVineetSingh @realshooterdadi @shooterdadi want the film to be ..”SAAND KI AANKH”. I am sorry that i had faith in Mr. Nandy,” he wrote in another tweet.
According to various media reports, Nandy's company already owned the title, which was brought to the makers notice after they announced the movie and went for the name registration.
Bhumi and Taapsee too took to their Twitter handles and shared the title of the film.
According to Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film will mark writer Tushar Hiranandani's debut as director. It will be jointly-produced by Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar. The filming is supposed to commence next year.
Other details about the film are kept under wraps. The film is based on Chandro and Prakashi, who are from Uttar Pradesh's Johri village and reportedly took up sharpshooting in their 50s.
Chandro is fondly called as shooter 'dadi' and is among the world's oldest female sharpshooters.
