Actor-turned-producer John Abraham has been forced to withdraw his film's working title "Hamara Bajaj" on the High Court's directives.

Recently, an order passed by the Bombay High Court ordered John and director Shoojit Sircar to change their forthcoming film's title.

A complaint was registered by two-wheeler giant Bajaj Auto against the film's producer for the use of the title "Hamara Bajaj" which incidentally was once the company's tagline.

The Indian motor company had moved the court seeking a ban on the use of the title and demanded its removal. The recent verdict by the Bombay HC ruled against John Abraham's JA Entertainment and ordered against the use of  "Hamara Bajaj" anywhere in the film.

The film which is set to feature the hit pair, Ayushman Khurana and Yami Gautam, will reportedly be based on the character of a small-town tour guide who aims to make it big in Bollywood.

"It is a story of a small time struggling actor called Sanjay Bajaj and that is why the title Hamara Bajaj. It is a drama about a small town guy, who wants to be an actor and eventually becomes a star. But there are challenges," Ayushmann had earlier told Press Trust of India (PTI).

The film will also reportedly star Pulkit Samrat in a supporting role. The 20-year-old actor was last seen in the Farhan Akhtar's home production "Fukrey".

This will be the second film post the super-hit "Vicky Donor", that will see Sircar, John, Ayushman, and Yami work together.
