Anurag Kashyap and his films have been in trouble many times. But this time Anurag Kashyap is fighting over a title.

His next film Womaniya starring Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu is now found in legal soup. Anurag was supposed to commence the shooting from February 10 this year but the title of the film is running into trouble as Pritish Nandy has already registered the title.


"I don't even know if it's legal to do this. It's like encroaching on someone's property, then asking for an obscene amount of money to get off it. We have been politely requesting Nandy for the title for a very long time and have even consulted lawyers on the matter. We've been told that no one can hoard a title. But to get a censor certificate, the producers' association has to register the title which makes the law contradictory" said Anurag in a statement.

"Both IMPPA and FMC (Film Makers Conbine) have written to Anurag Kashyap several times asking him not to use the title Womaniya illegally since it's owned by PNC" said Pritish to a leading daily.

Meanwhile, Womaniya will be directed by Tushar Hiranandani.
