A few weeks after the announcement of Farah Khan's next film TEES MAAR KHAN; there were stay reports of how the title may go through a change. Grapevine insisted that since Akshay Kumar was not too pleased with the word 'Khan' in the title, either an entirely different title would be created or a few letters may go through a rearrangement. However, the makers have confirmed that they have no such plans and the film's title would remain as TEES MAAR KHAN.

"Perhaps pages were required to be filled in and news around our film made for a spicy story. I guess someone just fabricated an entire article about Akshay being unhappy with the title", comes an outright denial from Shirish Kunder, producer of TEES MAAR KHAN and husband of Farah Khan.

CHECK OUT: TEES MAAR KHAN kick starts in March

The film maker, who has earlier directed Akshay Kumar in JAAN E MANN, is amused that how such rumours started on the first note itself. "Do you know that most of the compliments that we have received so far on the film have been around the title", continues Shirish, "There is no point changing it since it truly reflects the spirit of the film. If it had to change, it would have happened by now."

While Shirish vehemently denies any insinuations, many felt that the word 'Khan' in the title would indicate some kind of connection with one of the top 'Khan' actors, something that didn't quite amuse Akshay and Co.

"Its really amusing if someone says or even thinks so", Shirish adds in an animated tone, "I mean how idle minded can people get. Arrey, when you spell a word in Hindi, it has to be 'Khan' and not 'Kha'. Now we can't have our title as TEES MAAR KHAN which would then lead people to say '....maar kha' i.e. get beaten up. Come on, it’s a plain and simple humorous title that conveys the real spirit of the film. Our intention is not to create any controversy whatsoever."
