New Delhi, July 19 (IANS) UTV Motion Pictures and director Kunal Deshmukh have finally zeroed in on the title "Shaatir" for their thriller, starring Emraan Hashmi as a conman.

The movie was in title trouble. When the makers checked to register "Shaatir", they realised that the title already belonged to Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd.

This was a huge cause of concern for the makers. Incidentally, when UTV officials met Rohit Shetty for a casual meeting since the two are working on "Chennai Express", this topic came up.

Rohit, who has had an exceptional relationship with Ashtavinayak courtesy the superhit "Golmaal" series with them, agreed to speak to the production company, and helped settle the concern.

The makers were thrilled and grateful to Rohit for his help.

"Rohit was extremely helpful, he immediately spoke to Ashtavinayak and helped us get the title from them," Manish Hariprasad, creative director, Disney-UTV, said in a statement.

"We're very excited with our next production which is now called 'Shaatir'. This will be Emraan's second film with us and we are looking forward to work with him on something he has not played before and he is also very excited about playing a character of a 'shaatir' conman," Hariprasad added.
