The Original Titles of These Popular Bollywood Films Will Leave You Amazed


For those who don't know, it is said that Yash Raj was obsessed with the film ‘Silsila' and its songs so much, that he originally named this film as 'Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum'. But thank god, that the title didn't work out for this film. 

Jab We Met

Well, originally the movie was named as "Punjab Express", but we are glad that Imtiaz Ali changed the name.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Apparently, after the title 'Yeh kahan Aa Gaye Hum' was passed over Veer-Zaara, the same title was again suggested by Yash Raj for this movie and again it didn't work out for him.

Love Aaj Kal

No doubt, the storyline and cast of the film was superb but did you know the original title of this film was ‘Elastic'? Does it make sense? We are glad it never really happened. 

My Name is Khan

The original name of this Shah Rukh Khan movie was titled as 'Khan', but later Karan Johar added the prefix 'My Name is', as he thought that it would be more impactful.

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Intrestingly, the original title of this movie was 'Running With The Bulls' as they were participating in the Bull Running Festival in Spain. But later, Zoya Akhtar adopted the name 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' as she might have realised that the original title won't work with the Indian audience.
