My film is certainly not called ‘Jehad’: Rensil d’SilvaJanuary 11th, 2009 - 10:50 am ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Jan 11 (IANS) Saif Ali Khan’s films have a tendency to go nameless until the last minute.The latest is a Rensil d’Silva-directed terrorist thriller, which is produced by Karan Johar and has Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Viveik Oberoi and Om Puri in leading roles.
Nearing completion, the film has no title yet.
This week sections of the media were abuzz with reports that Rensil’s film has finally found a title “Jehad”.
Rensil is appalled by these reports. “Am I mad to call my anti-terrorism drama ‘Jehad’? What signal will it send out to the audience? Please don’t believe such rumours. ‘Jehad’ was a name suggested by Kareena and Saif. I am certainly not going by that title. Suddenly everyone thinks it’s called ‘Jehad’. Considering the current climate, that’s a really inappropriate title.”
So what is Rensil going to call his film?
“I’ve no clue. And I can’t put it to public vote because that would give away the title. But it’s certainly not ‘Jehad’.”
