Omkara is now Issak?

Vishal Bharadwaj has to make a choice on the title of his new film, an adaptation of the Shakespeare masterpiece Othello. My producers are keen to call it ISSAK [thats how people in U.P. pronounce Ishq]. They feel a title like OMKARA has its limitations, states Vishal. Meanwhile, a section of the media had gallantly announced that this Ajay-Saif-Vivek starrer will be premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May this year. How can we premiere the film at Cannes when the fact remains that it is not even complete? I guess, most journos dont understand the technicalities and misconstrue facts, he sounds sarcastic. The fact is that a special promo of the film will be showcased to the distributors and media at Cannes. We are preparing a 10-minute showreel for Cannes. Kishore Lulla [the Overseas distributor of the film] is also putting up a stall there, highlighting his forthcoming acquisitions for the Overseas territory. As things stand today, the principal cast of the film will participate in a media briefing at Cannes, Vishal clarifies. Vishal is keen to release the film in August this year, but is undecided about the date since Karan Johar hasnt confirmed the release schedule of KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA so far. We plan to release the film after KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA. If Karans film arrives on August 4/11, we will bring our film two weeks later, he reveals.
