Mani Rathnam’s Film as Raavan or Ashokavanam?

manirathnamThe title for the film directed by Mani Rathnam and starred by Aishwarya Rai was in debate. As the shooting for Mani Rathnam’s next has been going on unhindered for the past few months, the media too has been busy updating every bit of news that was available about this high profile movie. While it has been called Ashokavanam by all sections of the media with the Hindi version being called Raavan, the makers of the bilingual are yet to make any official announcement regarding the title.

Ashokavanam, had come under the scanner because a similar title had been registered by Kasthuriraja. Now, a clear picture seems to be emerging. It seems that  Raavan will indeed be the title of the Hindi version, the Tamil title is yet to be finalized, probably due to the fact that there may be collisions as far as the title is concerned. So the title for tamil version of the film will also be Raavan instead of Ashokavanam!
