The makers of the film ‘Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali’ are discussing to change the title of the film. The film stars Salman Khan in lead role.
After seven years, Salman and Sajid Nadiadwala are coming together for the film. They have done the film ‘Kick’ together.
The film also stars Pooja Hegde as the female lead with Aayush Sharma and Zaheer Iqbal in key roles.
A source said, “They want to change the title from Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and rename it. They are contemplating on several titles and a new one will be locked very soon”.
He further added, “The real reason to change the title is to avoid any sort of controversy around the film’s release. Both Salman and Sajid respect all religions, however, didn’t want anyone to misconstrue their title Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali as something that makes fun of two festivals. Hence, the hunt is now on for a fresh title.”
The movie is a story about a family that believes that all God are same.
“His father is Muslim. His mother is Hindu. Helen Aunty is a Catholic. Salman’s family is a living example of communal amity. The film’s plot will be similar. It will portray the ups and downs in a family which celebrates both Eid and Diwali with equal fervour. It will be Salman’s homage to the enduring spirit of oneness and brotherhood, a counterpoint to the currently vitiated atmosphere in the country. Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will take the cinematic experience back to the days of films like Yash Chopra’s Dharmputra and Dhool Ka Phool. It addresses the issue of Hindu-Muslim amity” says the source.
The film is set to release this year in September.
Salman is recently shooting for the film, ‘Tiger 3’ by Yash Raj Film productions, with Maneesh Sharma as the director. His film ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ is set to release on Eid. He also has the film ‘Antim: The Final Truth’ by Mahesh Manjrekar.
