Actors Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar are all set to come together for the first time for a film titled Saand Ki Aankh, a sports drama where they will be seen playing the role of world’s oldest sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomari.
Saand Ki Aankh, an Anurag Kashyap film, which was previously titled Womaniya has been making news for reasons ranging from budget issues to title rights dispute even before its conception. Filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Pritish Nandy got into a legal battle when it was brought to Kashyap’s notice, who coined the term ‘womaniya’ and holds the Intellectual Property Rights for it, that the title was registered under Pritish Nandy Communications.
Talking about the dispute, Kashyap said, “I don’t even know if it’s legal to do this. It’s like encroaching on someone’s property, then asking for an obscene amount of money to get off it. We have been politely requesting Nandy for the title for a very long time and have even consulted lawyers on the matter. We’ve been told that no one can hoard a title. But to get a censor certificate, the producers’ association has to register the title which makes the law contradictory.”
However, bringing the rumours to rest, Taapsee took on to Instagram to announce that the film has officially begun the shooting from February 9. “Kabhi humaari picture shelve karva dete hai kabhi title ki maara maari, maine socha main Khud hi picture announce kar deti hu through my PERSONAL MEDIANET ab jisko jo ukhaadna hai ukhaad lo (Sometimes they shelve our movie, then there’s the hassle over the film’s title. I’ve decided I should just announce my film through my personal medianet. They can do what they want now.)! Kickstarting the shoot of our country’s oldest and coolest shooters,” she wrote.
