Sanjay Dutt's SAAMY remake titled POLICEGIRI

By Glamsham Editorial

Tamil remakes are hot favourites this season and joining the bandwagon is producer T.P Aggarwal with a law abiding film which is the remake of the Tamil Hit SAAMY. The South Indian remake SAAMY was under the process of a title change. The movie starring Sanjay Dutt, Prachi Desai and Prakash Raj is directed by K S Ravikumar who is a well-known director in the south is best known for his direction skills and treatment of a sequence.

On confirming the news, K S Ravikumar said, "There was a tentative change in the film's title which was earlier going to run under the same name SAAMY but it was later changed to 'THANEDAAR RETURNS'. The idea of having the same name as the Tamil flick and later THANEDAAR RETURNS were in conflict with Sanjay's interest.

We did not want to mislead our audiences by giving them an impression of a sequel. So Sanjay discussed about the title with me and the other members of the film and brainstormed over a lot of titles apt of the film.

We short listed a few titles such as RUDRA, POWERPLAY, THE GAME OF ACTION, THE SAVIOUR, OR BATTLE OF FIRE. Yet, Sanju felt the names were very cliche and insisted to run around a title that can easily connect with the common man's lingo but at the same time should be unique. In the process, Sanju noted that we use a lot of lingo such as, 'Dadagiri, 'Gundagiri' and 'Bhaigiri' and the most famous being, 'Gandhigiri' so why couldn't we aptly put it as POLICEGIRI? He felt that this title could really connect with the audience as 'giri' represents the common Hindi speaking individual's lingo. While deciding the title, the producer of the film T. P. Aggarwal trusted Sanjay's creative instincts and finalized the title as POLICEGIRI."

T P Aggarwal said, "We have decided upon POLICEGIRI as the title. It was really nice of Sanjay to give his inputs while deciding the title. When we thought of name change for the film, we wanted a catchy yet different title. When Sanjay came up with the idea of putting the term 'giri' in the title, I felt the audience will easily pick up the term and it will very well connect to all the age groups. This suited the story of the film."

Well now Sanjay's fans have one more connect waiting in store for them this May. Dutt considers this project very close to is heart and is completely dedicated in and out process of the movie. In this film, Sanjay and Prachi are paired together and will be seen romancing for the first time on screen. Sanjay will be playing the role of a rough neck cop with a bit of both the bad cop-good cop act which also gives comic touch in his character, whereas Prachi will wear the image of a girl next door and will essay a role of a software engineer.

Sanjay Dutt, who is very excited about the role, is very happy with the title and so he feels, suggesting a title change really worked and the initial names were missing some connection with characters.

When approached Sanjay said very confidentially, "Yes, the film is titled POLICEGIRI and I am confident that the audiences will connect with the film."

POLICEGIRI is scheduled to release in May 2013 release.
