Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, whose upcoming production venture is Akshay Kumar starrer Gabbar, has confirmed to a leading daily that the title of the film has been changed and it will now be called as Main Gabbar.
The film stars Shruti Haasan, Sonu Sood, Prakash Raj and has Kareena Kapoor in a special appearance.
Bhansali, who is known for giving hits like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas, Black to name a few, wanted to explore a new genre. But since action entertainers are clearly not his forte, Sanjay Leela Bhansali decided to produce Main Gabbar.
Gabbar is slated to release on 3rd April 2015, which is the same day when YRF’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshy starring Sushant Singh Rajput will hit theatres.
