Fearing that problems may start in the future, producer Ramesh and director Malavalli Saikrishna has renamed their film 'Umeh Reddy' as 'Khatarnak'. Recently the relatives of psychotic killer and dreaded rapist Umesh Reddy had brought stay on the film 'Umesh' which was also based on the life of Umesh Reddy. Finally the Court had given a judgment that the word Reddy must be removed from the title card. With no other go, the team of 'Umesh' had removed the word from the sub-title.
Now the team of 'Umesh Reddy' has learnt a lesson from 'Umesh' and has decided to avoid further complications. So, the team has decided to change the title and has now titled the film as 'Khatarnak' instead of 'Umesh Reddy'.
