Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has revealed that he wanted his upcoming production "Blood Money" to be titled "Kalyug 2" but couldn't do so due to stiff opposition from his associates.

"I wanted to call this film 'Kalyug 2' but it was Kunal Khemu and Vishal Mahadkar who opposed me hammer-and-tongs saying we won't have you do this to our product. You have 'Raaz 3', 'Jism 3' , 'Murder 3', 'Ashiqui 2', so we want an original title for this," the 63-year-old said here in an interview.

"The film remotely resembles the structure of 'Kalyug', which had an individual lock horns with the porn industry and this has a young man locking horns with the diamond mafia," he added.

"Blood Money" talks about a small-town boy who enters the diamond export business and is slowly sucked into the underworld. The film also stars Amrita Puri of "Aisha" fame.

Bhatt also revealed the reason behind shooting the movie Cape Town when originally they wanted to can it in Antwerp, Belgium.

"This picture was going to be shot in Antwerp in Belgium. But people there of Indian origin who, I think, hailed from Gujarat, took exception to this particular story because they thought they would be shown in bad light. They thought the villain is loosely based on Bharat Shah, which is not true. They, in fact, ganged up against us and stopped us from shooting there. That's why we had to shoot in Cape Town," said Bhatt.
