UTV Motion Pictures today announced that their much anticipated con thriller with blockbuster actor-director jodi Emraan Hashmi and Kunal Deshmukh earlier titled Shaatir will now be called Raja Natwarlal.
“Ever since I heard this title, I’ve been after UTV to get it. It etches out my character perfectly and is extremely catchy. Also, because it fits in so well with the space of the film, it will help us in promoting the film very well.” added Emraan Hashmi.
Thrilled about the title change Kunal Deshmukh said “It’s a fantastic title and takes the film to another level. I always wanted to present Emraan in a never seen before avatar. He plays a master street con artist- the modern day Natwarlal. So the title is just apt.”
Emraan plays a modern day Natwarlal who along with his partner in crime, lives off short cons and day-to-day hustles in Mumbai. The movie progresses through many twists and turns, cons and more cons, leading to a big one. The film is a total masala entertainer, which will take you through the world of con and philosophies of conmen.
The film is slated for release on August 29th 2014.
