Solid Patels had its own controversy with the title clashing with that of a documentary film that is U.S. based having similar title. In order to avoid it, the filmmaker Saurabh Varma has changed the title of the movie from ‘Meet the Patels’ to ‘Solid Patels’.
Billion Pictures, the United States’ based company that has produced documentary titled ‘Meet the Patels’ had earlier on discovering that the title is used by the Indian filmmaker had sent legal communication to stop using the same title for the movie. The filmmaker stated in a recent press conference that they are sorted out legally now and the present title stands registered with the Indian TV and Film producers Council (IFTPC). He also went on to state that the decision to change the title was not out of controversy or compulsion, but it was made voluntarily. He however, acknowledged the fact that the notice is being considered by the team as a sort of compliment, as it indicates that plenty of awareness is already generated about this movie. Varma also quipped that the present title ‘Solid Patels’ would do well with the audience and does capture wonderfully the madness and quirkiness of the movie.
‘Solid Patels’ is an out and out comedy movie that is sure to tickle the funny bone in the audiences, according to the movie makers and is expected to do good revenue. This movie according to the filmmaker is presently in post production stage. The movie’s first trailer has been recently released for the audiences to have a glimpse of it.
