Deepa Mehta decided to title the film "1947- Earth " in the version released in India for several reasons. While shooting the film many people would ask her the film's name. When she would reply "Earth" people would think she was saying "Arth". This would then be met with negative comments that Mahesh Bhatt had already made a classic by that same name. To avoid confusion, she added "1947" to the title.
