Eesha Koppikhar may have been over the moon for bagging the challenging role of India’s first female gangster in Shabri, but the happiness was short-lived. The film, which was kept in cold storage for quite some time, is finally set to release today (26 August). However, the film will release only in the Bombay circuit.
Yes. This is shocking news in a time when most films have at least an all-India release (if not a worldwide release). Even producer Ram Gopal Varma is said to be at his wits’ end, wondering why Reliance Entertainment is giving the film a limited release.
On the other hand, Eesha has been venting her anger against RGV on Twitter.com. She tweeted, “Yes, it’s really sad. RGV being the producer hasn’t participated at all in the interviews or release… Please ask RGV, I’m not too sure why such step motherly treatment towards Shabri. And honestly it doesn’t matter to me. It’s releasing and I’m thankful to God.”
