Nawazuddin Siddiqui-Athiya Shetty's 'Motichoor Chaknachoor' released in the theatrical screens last Friday and opened to a poor response. However, the controversy around the film just refuses to die down.
In the latest turn of events, the film's director Debamitra Biswal has disowned the film alleging that the movie was taken away from her in post-production, because of 'silly ego fights'. Before the release of 'Motichoor Chaknachoor', the producer and the director of the film were at loggerheads and the mud-slinging continues even after the movie has already made its way to cinema halls.
As per a report in Hindustan Times, Biswal wrote a lengthy post on social media where she thanked her cast and crew for their hardwork, but expressed regret that she failed to save the film.
Debramitra Calls 'Motichoor Chaknachoor' The Most Toughest Journey Of Her Life
Debamitra wrote, "Now that the film is finally releasing, I would like to tell everyone that this has been the most toughest journey in my life ever. But unfortunately not the best one at the end. We all from the actors to the technicians to everyone involved in the film made this film with immense love and hardwork. But i guess not all journey are made successful.
Everyone who has worked in a film knows very well how important an edit is for a film. Sticking shots together does not make a film. I wish important decision makers of the film could have understood this. But i will always be grateful to the beautiful souls who helped me complete this film but sadly no one can watch the magic that we created."
The Filmmaker Thanks The Cast & Crew
She further wrote, "Thank you Chandan Arora for showing me how a great film is made on the edit table. Thank you for editing it beyond beautiful. Sadly the world is not seeing our work.
Thank you Megh for writing the hilarious dialogues and the amazing screenplay with me but sadly, the world is not going to see our version of fun."
Thank you Nawaz ji, Athiya, Vibha Chibber, Navni Parihar, Sanjeeva Vats, Abhishek Rawat, Sapna Sand, Karuna Pandey, Vivek Mishra ji, Usha Nagar ji, Rachna Pakai, n little Devansh,for putting the bestest in this film. Sadly no one will get to watch that best."
Director Blames 'Silly Ego Fights' For The Damage
"I will only cherish the sounds of people who laughed n enjoyed at the personal screening of my version even without any background music or proper dubbing.Sadly that version is not coming out. Only due to some silly ego fights which has no meaning at all.
Thank you my entire team. Thank you Tariq Bhai, Suhas Gujrati, Sanjay Bansal, Zeeshan, imran...thank you not only for helping me out in the film but thank you for standing by me through out."
Debamitra Apologises For Not Being Able To Save The Film
She further wrote, "Sorry i could not save the film. We know what great potential it had. But i guess sometimes things get ruined even after lot of honesty put in. I still wish i could show the world what i had made. Thank you Sohaib for taking all this pain since last three years and still standing by me like a rock. Your support is beyond measure. I might have fallen short on luck with this film but definitely beyond grateful to god to bless me you as my husband. Sorry i could not make you proud this time."
'Watch It At Your Own Risk'
She further concluded, "Lastly very important notice to all near and dear ones: It's OK if you still want to watch the film but go at your own risk. I will not be responsible for your bheja fry. An experience definitely as sweet as Motichoor, but an outcome is total Chaknachoor." (sic)
