Amitabh Bachchan-Shoojit Sircar’s Shelved Film To Be Revived On Digital?

  Post the  astronomical  amount  that  Amazon has paid for  the  premiere  rights  for the Amitabh Bacchan-Shoojit Sircar starrer Gulabo Sitabo,it  is reliably learnt that  their  complete-but-unreleased  film Shoebite about a 60-year old man’s journey  of self-discovery, is  all set to be  rescued from the cans and released  on  the OTT platform.

 Sources say  the  dispute  between  the  film’s  producers  is now being  resolved  amicably.

“After  Gulabo Sitabo was sold  to  the OTT platform for Rs 35 crores, the  disputing producers saw wisdom in retrieving Shoebite from oblivion and  putting it on  the digital domain,” says the sources.

Those who have seen  Shoebite  swear by the  high quality  of its content. It is said to feature the Bachchan in  one of his career’s best  performances.

With Gulabo Sitabo  turning  out to be  such a damp squib, Shoebite  is  just  the  panacea needed  to  stymie the prevalent puerility  of  the  digital platform.
