Mumbai: Filmmaker Saurabh Varma's "Meet The Patels" has been renamed "Solid Patels" to avoid clashing with a US-based documentary film with the same title.
The title has been changed after US-based company Billion Pictures, which has produced an eponymous documentary, sent a legal communication to Indian production banner Krian Media.
When asked about it, Varma said: "We are legally sorted as our title is registered with IFTPC (Indian Film and TV Producers Council), but we have chosen to change it voluntarily. We actually consider this notice as a compliment because this indicates that there is awareness about our film.
"The new title 'Solid Patels' captures the quirkiness and madness of our film."
The movie features Shiv Pandit, Shazahn Padamsee, Ketan Singh and Vaishali Desai.
