How did Rajeev Khandelwal’s Samrat & Co get its title?

There is a quirky story as to how the detective drama got its name. Read on to know…

The makers of Bollywood’s ambitious detective saga Samrat & Co, releasing on April 25 are indeed grateful to Nitin Desai, the famous art director of B-town films. Says producer Kavita Barjatya, “Samrat & Co was our working title. However as we grew with the subject and the character of Samrat, we just could not see anything else fitting into the mould. We learnt that the title Samrat was registered with Nitin dada and on requesting him he very graciously offered to give it to us.”

It is also learnt that Nitin Desai has been signed on for the Salman Khan film to be directed by Sooraj Barjatya. So is Nitin Desai doing Kavita’s film too? Says Kavita, “Nitin dada did send a message for Samrat & Co, which I am producing under our family banner, to be directed by Kaushik Ghatak, but however we are already committed to Mr Jayant Deshmukh for this film as we have worked together in the past too and share a wonderful rapport with him.”

Samrat means emperor. So has this film got something to do with a royal touch? The film’s director Kaushik Ghatak informing about his choice of this different title said, “The word Samrat speaks for itself… it brings out the grandness of the character which we intended for our hero played by Rajeev Khandelwal. Grandness in thought, grandness in attitude… Samrat is a person who chooses to do what he wants..he may refuse the case of a rich business tycoon inspite of being offered a lot of money and he would rather pick a case if it is as simple as a child’s cat getting lost!”

Specially targeting India’s young audiences, Samrat & Co is the first of its kind detective franchisee, wherein the very nuances of crime solving, human nature and the world of standalone private investigators will be presented on the big screen on a pure entertainment platform.

Now only time will tell us how this detective drama has panned out. Will Rajeev Khandelwal prove to be the Indian Sherlock Holmes? What do you think peeps?
