Rumour has it that Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar's joint venture will be called Gutka. Sources reveal that the name was finalised on Wednesday and that director Madhur Bhandarkar made it possible. Buzz has it that Karan was keen on the name Gutka but Madhur had the rights to that particular title. It has been reported that four days ago, Karan called Madhur and the latter happily parted with the title.
The film, which is a co-production of Dharma Productions and Hari Om Entertainment, will have a strong social message. While Punit Malhotra may direct the film, Emraan Hashmi is being considered to play the parallel male lead.
