The film Shoebite has been struck with controversy over its rights. "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," the Big B added. The megastar further writes, "UTV assures us each time that all shall be worked out. I wonder when. A great amount of hard work and personal sweat has been put into that film."
