Sara Ali Khan along with Akshay Kumar and Dhanush is all set to create magic on-screen with the Anand L Rai directorial Atrangi Re. The trailer was released recently and the fans are in love with the unusual yet heartwarming plot. Talking about the title Atrangi Re, it is no secret that filmmakers and production houses in Bollywood register a film title if it is catchy and then form a plot around it. But Anand L Rai did not own the right to the title Atrangi Re and in fact, it was Bollywood superstar Salman Khan who had registered the title for himself.

But Salman Khan made a kind gesture for Anand L Rai and give the rights to him although he had his own quirky condition. The director told ETimes, “I moved from one of my most complicated films, ‘Atrangi Re’ to the simplest story of the bond between a brother and sister, ‘Raksha Bandhan’. But there’s an interesting story about the time when I went to the film association to get both the titles. I did not get ‘Atrangi Re’ but when I asked for the title of ‘Raksha Bandhan’, forget having attempted a story on the subject, nobody had even registered the title.”

Anand further added that Salman let him have the title only if he was to direct the movie, “Salman Bhai had the title registered to his production house but he gave it to me on one condition. He told his associates to give the title rights only if I direct the film, otherwise they wouldn’t have let it go.”
