Rang De Basanti....

Not sure about the authenticity of this mail, but it is truly interesting.

Why the name : Rang De Basanti

Actually, I asked the same question to Aamir when he met me on airport lounge one day. What he told was pretty interesting..

In there crew was a person called Gnar (Russian Artist). He was a giant of 8'2" in height & 130 kilos of weight. He was in the role of villain in the movie.

The producer of the movie was asked by some pundit to name his film after 11 days of shooting is completed. On 11th day of shoot, all crew had a heated discussion & argument on what should be the name of the movie. They decide to put chits & all stuff, but nobody agreed to one name. At that time Gnar was not feeling well & he was sleeping in his camp tomb (It was an outdoor shoot on the mountains). The pundit was on sets & he suggested that the crew will visit Gnar & whatever will be first word(s) every person will speak after entering his camp - will be the name of movie. If more than one choice then the the word(s) mostly spoken will be selected. & that will be the last chance of titling the movie.

Scene -2. All of the crew people walking towards GNAR's tent & opens the veil & ... All of them were surprised... Gnar twirling & trying to sleep on a 4 feet long bed. Everyone was shocked & in unison they shouted "ITNA SA BED GNAR"..... silence... long silence.... It was said.. & by all.. They had to keep this name of the movie..

But, the producer & Director were very upset over the kind of name finalized. They lost all enthusiasm & even thought of dumping the project... Then came the advice from the great GNAR... The advice which was accepted by the producer with most happiness... He Said, "Why don't you reverse the title text....
