Imitiaz had also shared that one of the difficult things about the film was deciding its title, according to The Indian Express. "I always knew that Laila Majnu is the only title that this film could go by. The star, the plot of the film is Laila Majnu. We have known the legendary lovers for years and years before any one of our names were known," the filmmaker had shared.

He also revealed that the process of naming the film was easier once he purchased the title rights from filmmaker Ramesh Taurani.

While trailer will drop on Wednesday, the film is slated to release on 24 August.
