How often have we seen actors change their name’s spelling in order to be more successful? Ritesh Deshmukh became Riteish Deshmukh, Tushar Kapoor became Tusshar Kapoor and so on. Apart from that, a lot of filmmakers, too, believe in certain superstitions. Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor used to start their film/serial names only with the letter K. Sadly, KJo’s Kurbaan tanked while his other production, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, was a blockbuster. It’s great that the director has gotten over his fixation with the letter. Also, most of these makers don’t realize that if the film has good content, it will work. Here are some of the films which tweaked the spelling of their title, but still failed to be successful. Maybe it’s time to pay the scriptwriter instead of the numerologist?




Those extra zzzzz’s probably symbolize what people were doing in the theatre. Himesh, please stick to music.

Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara



The sequel to the 2010 hit failed to impress. We doubt it could, even if the city’s name was spelled correctly. 

Singh is Bliing



Too much bling, we say.

Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 


The makers may be keeping the franchise alive, but none of the films have fared exceptionally well. Not kool, guys, not kool.

People simply need to stop changing the name of actual places.

 Somebody needs to be shot for this one. Not necessarily with a camera!
