Ayushmann Khurrana has watched the unreleased movie, Shoebite, which stars Amitabh Bachchan, and was directed by acclaimed director, Shoojit Sircar and he has said that it’s one of the best movies he’s ever seen. The movie has been mired in legal disputes, because of which it has not been able to come out in cinema’s. It was produced by the Percept Picture Company, but then the production was taken up by UTV motion pcitures. The Perect Picutre Company filed a lawsuit against UTV motions, but it was soon dismissed. The movie, however, didn’t come out and was shelved. Last week, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted about the movie, asking the producers to release it, since a lot of hard work has been put into it.
Ayushmann, who worked with him in Vicky Donor, was apparently privy to Shoojit’s edit room, and has seen the movie twice, he also added that the movie has “love, soul and it’s a fine example of undying human spirit”. He ended the tweet by requesting, “Release this for the love of cinema”.
When Shoojit was asked about the film last week he said that the movie is with UTV and Fox, which were separate at first, but have been merged, and they should release the movie. Shoojit also added that he and Big B have been pleading for the release of the movie, and he’s ready to sell his house if it means the movie gets to be seen.
Have seen this gem twice in the edit room of @shoojitsircar dada. One of the best films I’ve ever seen. It has love, soul and it’s a fine example of undying human spirit. Release this for the love of cinema. 🙏🏻 https://t.co/phDqQQVhZ5
