New Delhi, Sep 28 (PTI) "Gangs of Wasseypur" may be credited for making the catchphrase "Tum Se Na Ho Payega" popular, but writer-director Nitesh Tiwari, whose new film draws its title from the line, believes it was already a part of the audience's conscience.

Spoken by Tigmanshu Dhulia's character Ramadhir Singh in Anurag Kashyap's 2012 cult classic, the phrase has come to reflect loss of faith in someone's ability and competence.

Written by Tiwari and directed by Abhishek Sinha, "Tum Se Na Ho Payega" is a "light-hearted take on the modern-day challenges faced by today's youth, and their dilemma in standing up to these rules laid by the society".
