Producer Ekta Kapoor, known for her belief in astrology and numerology, has made too many alphabetical changes in the title of Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara! (OUATIMD).

Earlier, the film was titled Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again and later Again was replaced by Dobaara. And now more additions have been made to the title, an exclamation has been added after Dobaara and Y has been added after A. "I believe in astrology and numerology, but I will get to know (its effect) only after the release of the film," Ekta told reporters at the second trailer launch of Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara! The successful filmmaker compares filmmaking with gambling.

"Filmmaking is all about gambling — just one weekend decides the fate, while in TV serials you can change the track, kill someone and bring him or her back, but films are scarier and exciting."

Akshay Kumar plays his first negative role in the underworld drama. Ekta said: "Bad is the new good. I love his half smile, which is too scary and sexy. He is incredibly sexy in the film." However, Milan Luthria is a common factor in both the films - he directed the first part and the sequel as well.
