Recession and IPL hit Shahid Kapoor's plans
Despite choreographer, director and now turned producer, Ahmed Khan's Paathshala being ready, it seems the film has been postponed ahead for one more time. Originally the film was planned for a January 9th, 2009 release but then was postponed ahead to May 2009 for a summer vacations release.
But now the industry buzz is strong the film has been further postponed to a mid-June release.
The chief reasons for the postponement are said to be the ongoing recession which will make it difficult to promote the film in a big way and the 20Twenty IPL second season starting from April and going on till mid-June.
The makers don't want to take any risk by releasing their film in this period despite it being a summer vacation for kids.
The film stars Shahid Kapur, Ayesha Takia and Nana Patekar in the main lead along with well known child stars Ali Haji (Fanaa, Ta Ra Rum Pum), Swini Khera (Cheeni Kum), Dwij Yadav (Nanhe Jaisalmer, Heroes) and Avika Gor (Balika Vadhu).
Shahid's role in the film is that of a teacher in the film and the story revolves around a group of troubled young students. His entry in the film is supposed to be similar to that of Aamir Khan's in Taare Zameen Par that is just at the interval point.
The budget of the film is said to be around 15 crores.
