Sohail Khan gives up the rights to the title Hunterrr for Phantom Films

Anurag Kashyap’s song ‘I am a hunter’ from Gangs of Wasseypur was a leading chartbuster.

So while the production house was brainstorming on names for a film they were producing, they  borrowed the name from the song.

They all mutually loved the title and zeroed on Hunterrr

While they had varied name suggestion, Hunterrr was something which was resonating the most with the essence of the film.

However, when they got into formalities of registering the title they realized the name was already registered with Sohail Khan.

After more brainstorming sessions they were yet unable to find a more fitting name for the film and that is when they decided to approach and request Sohail Khan for the title.

Sohail  generously gave away the registered title to them.

Infact he fleetingly read the script and quite enjoyed it.

​Says Vikas Bahl, "Sohail is one of the the most generous people I've met in my life and one of my dearest friends..so even before I could complete my sentence, requesting for the title, he happily gave it to us..and we are so thankful to him for it as we were really struggling to get the right title for the film."
