Dirty games will now be called ‘BISAAT khel shatranj ka’
Veteran director Vikram Bhatt’s next thriller earlier titled “Dirty Games” will now be called “BISAAT khel shatranj ka”. The makers clinched the shoot in Mumbai.
The most awaited thriller announced its shoot last October. Thereafter it’s been talk of the town. The eight-episode series stars Sandeepa Dhar and Omkar Kapoor in lead roles.
Talking about the title development captain of the ship Vikram Bhatt says,”There was nothing dirty about ‘Dirty Games’ to begin with, Dirty Games was about the games people play. But there was a perception that dirty meant – sexually dirty or something worse and that’s now what the show is. Secondly, in the age of OTT going right it perhaps was a wrong signal so now the title is ‘BISAAT Khel shatranj ka’. We have added khel Shatranj ka to BISAAT.”
Adding to it he says,”Basically, BISAAT means a chessboard. Since the show is about twists and turns. People’s mind ticking likes a game of chess it was just abet.”
