Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Valmiki Ki Bandook’ title to be altered?
The Paan Singh Tomar director is facing the ire of the Valmiki Samaj for the current title of his just-announced film
Members of Haryana-based Valmiki Samaj have expressed resentment over the title of Jimmy Shergill-starrer Valmiki Ki Bandook. However, the film’s director Karan Butani says the film has nothing to do with lord Valmiki, and they are ready to alter the title if the need arises. “We happened to read an article about this new film in the papers, and we didn’t like the name of the film,” Raj Kumar, general secretary of Valmiki Samaj, said. “Valmiki is our guru, we worship him.
