The title of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s upcoming directorial, starring Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, has had a surprising alteration.

The spelling of the film’s title, Bullet Raja, seems to have suddenly changed to Bullett Raja. An insider from the production house says that the change was made due to numerological superstition.

“A numerologist suggested that spelling the word in the title as Bullett will improve the film’s prospects,” says the source.

However, the makers argue that the change is to enhance the impact of the title. Producer Rahul Mittra says that “as the film has Lucknow as its backdrop, and in Hindi it’s pronounced as Bullett, Tigmanshu wanted to have it spelt like that.”
