Director Neeraj Pandey, of “Special 26” fame, has changed the title of his upcoming production venture from “Aman Ki Asha” to “Total Siyappa.”
The makers felt the title “Aman Ki Asha” was communicating a different feel for the film, which is a romantic comedy. The movie will now be called “Total Siyappa,” which means “total chaos.”
“We had earlier called the film ‘Aman Ki Asha’ as the boy’s name is Aman and the girl’s name is Asha. But the film is more than that. So, we have now changed it to a Punjabi title, ‘Total Siyappa,’” Pandey said.
The film is set in London and is a hilarious take on how a Pakistani Punjabi boy goes to meet the girl’s Indian Punjabi family and deals with the chaos that follows.
Director E. Niwas, of “Shool” fame, will direct the film, which stars Ali Zafar and Yami Gautam. It is set to hit screens Jan. 31, 2014.
