Phantom Films were busy brainstorming on names for their upcoming film and while doing so, they zeroed in on the the title 'Hunterrr'. The song 'I am a Hunter' from Anurag Kashyap's own 'Gangs of Wasseypur' was a hit and one of their references for the title.
All of them agreed that the title 'Hunterrr' was the one which resonated most with the essence of the film and decided to get done with the formalities for registering the title. While doing so, the came to known that the title is already registered with Sohail Khan. Hence, they decided to brainstorm further to find a more suitable name for the film.
Unable to do so, they decided to approach Sohail for title who readily agreed to part with the title. In fact, he even had a quick glance at the script and quite enjoyed it.
Says Vikas Bahl, "Sohail is one of the the most generous people I've met in my life and one of my dearest friends..so even before I could complete my sentence, requesting for the title, he happily gave it to us..and we are so thankful to him for it as we were really struggling to get the right title for the film."
