In the video, Kapil interacted with the Cuttputli team, which included Akshay, Rakul Preet Singh, Chandrachur Singh and Sargun Mehta, as well as film producer Jackky Bhagnani.
During his conversation with Akshay, Kapil told the audience in Hindi: “When the filming of Cuttputli took place in London, it was rumored that the film was called Mission Cinderella. It was later changed to Cuttputli.” He then asked Akshay, “Did a priest ask to do it (change the name) or did he not get a visa?”
Akshay replied, “Mission Cinderella kabhi tha hi nhi. Yeh kisine afwah fayladi, kisine daal diya tha Mission Cinderella. Mission Cinderella Kabhi is film kanaam tha hi nahi. Woh meri Mission Mangal film chal gayi thi toh waisine kisine Cinderella was never the name of the movie. Someone started the rumours, someone added it as Mission Cinderella. After my movie Mission Mangal worked, someone said take Mission Cinderella. Just because).”
He also added, “Mission cindrella kaese hosakta hai? It’s a psychothriller. Iska mission kya hoga (How could it be Mission Cinderella? It’s a psychothriller. What could its mission be?).” In response, Kapil said, “Gussa kyu horahe ho? Maine toh aese hi pucha (Why are you getting mad? I just asked).”
Akshay looked at Archana and said to her, “Iske baad afwah pe yeh fook deta hai, gussa iske upar hai (he believes rumours, so my anger is on him).” Kapil laughed and said, “Humara dhanda hi afwaho pe chal raha hai, hum kya kare (Our show runs on rumours, what can we do)?” Earlier, several reports had said that Cuttputli was previously called Mission Cinderella.
Cuttputlli released on Disney+ Hotstar on September 2. Produced by Vashu Bhagnani and Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh and Pooja Entertainment, the film is directed by Ranjit M Tewari.
