Producer Sajid Nadiadwala officially announced that his epic love story, Satyanarayan Ki Katha, will be renamed after receiving outrage from certain sectors of the society for offending religious sensitivities with the title. Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani star in the love story, which is directed by Sameer Vidwans, a National Award winner.
The title has nothing to do with religious emotions, a source connected to the production house told Bollywood Hungama. It’s actually a word play suggesting a love story between two lead characters. The source told the portal, “Initially, director Sameer Vidwan had named the two lead actors of his films – Satyanarayan and Katha. The title suggested how Satyanarayan wins over Katha with love and hence the title Satyanarayan Ki Katha.”
Following the criticism, the team decided to change the title because the film is about love and they didn’t want to offend anyone while crafting a beautiful musical love story. They’re debating numerous titles right now, and the character names have been changed as well. Satya is the name of Kartik’s character now, while Katha is the name of Kiara’s character. In the following 20 days, a title should be decided.
Before calling it a wrap, the team hopes to have the film on the floor in December with a flat 40 to 45 day timetable.
