When the title was announced, both Nani and the makers received a severe backlash from the audience as the latter felt that the title belongs to only Chiru and Ram Charan. Despite all the criticism, Nani and Co decided to go with the same title. On the other side, another small-time producer alleged that he has already registered the same title in the film chamber and demanded Nani to remove it.
During the recent press meet of the film, Nani stated that mega fans will be happy after watching the film and added that they will indeed think that Gang Leader is the apt choice as film's name. He also said that there are many Megastar references in the movie which will make fans extremely happy. Looking at his statements, it seems like Nani is trying to woo mega fans to get their support if at all he falls in any other trouble because of the title. Well played Nani!
