Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali is busy shooting for his yet-to-be-titled film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma these days. Rumoured to be titled as The Ring, it is one of the most anticipated films of this year and interestingly the film will lock horns with Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha at the box office.

Imtiaz who was present at the screening of Richa Chadha’s debut production Khoon Ali Chithi on Monday told that the title of his film is not yet decided but will be done soon. “The name of the film is not yet decided, we have some time. August 11… The film is going to release. So we will announce the name very soon,” Imtiaz revealed.

Asked about the box office clash with Akshay Kumar’s film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Imtiaz Ali said: “There are only 52 weeks in a year and some of them have been taken away by other things and of course, there are more than 52 films. So, clashes are not a big deal.”
