There is not a single soul out there who hasn't heard of the Arab folktale of Aladdin and the magic lamp. And while the character is indeed known as 'Aladdin' worldwide, Sujoy Ghosh's take on it is a little different. He is calling his central protagonist as 'Aladin' (with one 'd' less) and this is something that reflects in the title of his namesake film as well.

Says a source close to Sujoy, ''Earlier there were different titles for the film which were making the rounds. They went like ALLADIN and even ALADIN AND THE MYSTERY OF THE LAMP. However, now it is plain and simple ALADIN.''

Sujoy Ghosh too confirms, ''Yes, now it is ALADIN for sure. Period.''

CHECK OUT: Big B's ALADIN on 24th July

Hopefully this should put a full stop to all speculations and misgivings about the title of this multi-crore film which is all set to arrive late summer provided producers v/s multiplexes stand off is resolved soon. The film has been in news for long since it has taken a four year long journey ever since first steps were taken for the pre-production of the film. Ever since then a fortune has been spent on this film which has required a year being spent on scripting, a year and a half into pre-production, 149 days of shoot and then a year on post-production.

Starring Amitabh Bachchan as Genius - The Genie, Ritiesh Deshmukh as Aladin and Sanjay Dutt as a cool villain, ALADIN also marks the debut of Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandes who is paired opposite Ritiesh. With music by Vishal and Shekhar, ALADIN is produced by Eros International in association with Sujoy Ghosh's production company Boundscript.
