“It’s tentatively titled Dhamaka, which signifies the impact of the news across the globe – more like a Dhamaka that it created, the shock value that it had on people at a global level due to the magnitude of the crime. However, there are some other titles in contemplation too with Dhamaka in the forefront,” a source added further that everyone feels that a one-word title will leave a desired impact among the audience.
