Big B wants 'Shoebite' soon!
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is eagerly awaiting the release of Shoojit Sircar's much-delayed project 'Shoebite'
Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan wants Shoojit Sircar's much-delayed project 'Shoebite' to release soon. He says a lot of hard work went behind the movie.
'Shoebite' is stuck in controversy over its rights, and Big B remembered the project as he was due to shoot an advertisement with Sircar in Bhopal on Monday.
"Shoojit Sircar shoots it. Shoojit of now 'Vicky Donor' fame, but before that of 'Shoebite' with me. I do hope we get to see the light of day of that film. There is some battle on regarding its rights and UTV who produce and 20th Century Fox in the US are, I am told, sorting it out," Amitabh posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
"Fox says the rights are with them, and they wish to make the film with Denzil Washington, but much before that we had already completed the film on the assurance that the rights were cleared," he added.
He says the team at UTV has assured that "all shall be worked out", but the 70-year-old veteran says: "I wonder when".
"A great amount of hard work and personal sweat has been put into that film... But such is life! Sometimes, the most amount of energy spent on the accomplishment of an issue does not necessarily translate to better result," he added.
Amitabh is currently in Bhopal to shoot for Prakash Jha's 'Satyagraha'.
