However, the director of Raja Natwarlal, Kunal Deshmukh has now rejected the buzz stating that the film does not reflect on the life of Natwarlal.
Deshmukh claims that the movie has been titled as Raja Natwarlal for varied reasons and is not directly based on the life of the famous conman.
"Emraan in the film plays a street-hustler named Raja who aspires to be a big conman like Natwarlal. For any conman in Indua, Natwarlal is an idol and Raja has similar aspirations. Hence the title has been finalised as Raja Natwarlal. Otherwise, the film has no connection to the life of real life conman Natwarlal," said the director.
Emraan Hashmi starrer Raja Natwarlal is a movie which will give a vivid picture of the world of conman. Apart from Emraan in the lead role, others to feature in Raja Natwarlal are Humaima Mallik, Paresh Rawal, Deepak Tijori and Kay Kay Menon.
