The buzz in Kollywood is that Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s AL Murgadoss directed Thuppakki will have a title change. A bitter battle has been going on between Thuppakki producers and Kalla Thuppakki producers over title issue.
The matter is now in a court and is coming up for hearing on October 3. There have been many postponements. Every time the issue came up the producers of Thuppakki were confident it would be sorted out.
However the latest we hear is that the producers of Thuppakki and its director AR Murgadoss are considering a change in the film’s title. It seems two new titles are under consideration- Saravedi and Mumbai Tamizhan.
Murgadoss himself had vaguely hinted in Twitter some time back that “this Diwali there would be a Saravedi action entertainer.” Vijay fans say that it is a clear indication that Saravedi may be one of the titles. The other rumour is that the producers are thinking of the title Mumbai Tamizhan as the entire story takes place in Mumbai.
But sources close to the producers say that they will take the final call only after the next court hearing scheduled on October 3.
