Last year in July, director Sameer Vidwans, had released an official statement about the change in the film's title. The director claimed the decision to change the name aims to avoid hurting sentiments. Vidwans had shared the statement on Twitter and Kartik re-tweeted it on his verified Twitter handle.
The statement read: "A title of the film is something that emerges organically through the creative process. We have taken a decision to change the title of our recently announced film 'Satyanarayan Ki Katha' to avoid hurting sentiments, even if that's purely unintentional. Producers of the film and the creative team also are in complete support of this decision. We will be announcing a new title for our love story in the due course of our journey. Sincerely, Sameer Vidwans."
Co-produced by Namah Pictures and Sajid Nadiadwala's banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, the film will mark the first collaboration between Kartik and Sajid Nadiadwala.
