After several rows and name changes, Manoj Bajpai and Vikram Bhatt finally zero down on a title for their next

The Bard may have said: What's in a name? But, in Bollywood, it means a lot and also spells constant changes. Manoj Bajpai, who features in Vikram Bhatt's production, doesn't appear to be on the same wavelength as the filmmaker about the title for their project together.

The film was launched as Vibhishan. When the shooting began, it was changed to Rab Jaisa Koi and now it has been rechristened Lanka.

Bajpai, who stars in the film along with Arjan Bajwa and Tia Bajpai, has been taking a great interest in finding a right title. As a result, the star and the producer have been constantly at loggerheads as each would shoot down the other's suggestion.

Confirms Vikram, "Manoj and I just could not agree on the name. There were several altercations due to which the alterations in the title kept happening. Finally when Lanka came up, it was a name we both liked."
