Recently Akshay Kumar had revealed the story about how SINGH IS KINNG derived its title. It so happened that while Akki was driving back from Jaipur there was a Sardarji's truck in front of his car. At the back of the truck were the words 'Singh is King' he absolutely loved the phrase, which is where he got his inspiration for the film's title. 'It went brilliantly with the theme of our film,' he revealed.
But our query is how did 'King' turn into 'Kinng'? Laughs the man behind the superhit films AANKHEN, WAQT and NAMASTEY LONDON, Vipul Shah, 'As a Producer I have my film's interest to caretake. We need success at any cost. My view has always been that whatever can be done to better the vibes of the film or add to the 'luck' factor should be done. So simply, the extra N is only to bring it numerologically to an auspicious number.'
Commenting on Bollywood's belief in numerology, he adds, 'As Indians, don't we do this all the time? Whether it's while buying a car, striking a deal or 'Grihapravesh', we always look for auspicious dates or lucky charms, don't we? So as a Producer I'm looking for auspicious signs for my film!'
Studio 18 release SINGH IS KINNG will be out on August 8 worldwide with previews in select locations on August 7.
