It appears that Yash Chopra too has developed a penchant for numerology and is tapping its immense possibilities to woo lady luck in his latest film, VEER ZAARA. The news goes that the spellings of the three principal characters in the film, Veer Pratap Singh (essayed by Shah Rukh Khan), Zaara Hayaat Khan (essayed by Priety Zinta) and Saamiya Siddiqui (essayed by Rani Mukherjee) were all arrived after working out their numerological quotient. So Veer was spelt with a double 'e', Zaara and Hayaat with a double 'a' and Saamiya with a double 'a'. The effort seems to be already working with the theatrical trailers of the film already deriving the right amount of curiosity about the three characters among the audiences.
This is in addition to the title of the film, which was meticulously planned after deriving the names of the two protagonists Veera Pratap Singh, an Indian, who is in love with a Pakistani woman Zaara Hayaat Khan, played by Zinta.
