On confirming the news with producer Mr. TP Aggarwal, he said, "There was a tentative a change in the film's title which was earlier going to run under the same name Saamy but it was later changed to Thanedaar Returns. Having said that, the idea of having the same name as the Tamil flick and later Thanedaar Returns were in conflict with Sanjay's interest. We did not want to mislead our audiences by giving them an impression of a sequel. So he sat down with me and the other members of the film and brainstormed over a lot of titles apt of the film. We short listed a few titles and finally locked on Policegiri? Dutt felt that this title could really connect with the audience as 'giri' represents the common Hindi speaking individual's lingo." While deciding the title, the producer of the film T. P. Aggarwal trusted Sanjay's creative instincts and finalized the title as Policegiri.
In this film, Sanjay and Prachi are paired together and will be seen romancing on screen. Sanjay will be playing the role of a rough neck cop with a bit of both the bad cop-good cop act which also gives comic touch in his character, whereas Prachi will wear the image of a girl next door and is a software engineer who falls in love with Dutt and marries him.
When approached Sanjay said very confidentially, "Yes, the film is titled Policegiri and I am confident that the audiences will connect with the film." Policegiri will release in May 2013.
