Vishal Bhardwaj's forthcoming film is about to be completed and

Devgan, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Konkona Sen Sharma, Bipasha
Basu, Naseerudin Shah and Vivek Oberoi in lead roles. This
adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello is tentatively titled as
However it is believed that Ajay Devgan was not much happy with
the current title Omkara. According to him the title
doesn't convey the message of the film. Director Bhardwaj also
seems to have agreed with Devgan. So to get a title for their film,
the makers are trying to get in public opinion.
The makers are all set to run a title hunt contest across India.
Producer Kumar Mangat explained that the Title Hunt contest will
provide three options - Omkara, Ishq and O
Saathi Re to the public. One of these three titles will be
selected through the public poll and the lucky winner will be
invited to release the film's audio CD in Dubai. The person will
also get to meet the cast of the film there. This is a first of its
kind attempt to name a film through an opinion poll.
Mangat also informed that Bhardwaj will be doing his next
venture as well, which will be again a multistarrer film.
