Making films is not an easy task and also it’s never a one-man show. The outcome is always a collective effort and no one can deny that fact. ‘Motichoor Chaknachoor‘ director Debamitra Biswal recently shared a lengthy post wherein she disowned her own film. Debamitra said that no one will be able to see her original vision thanks to ‘Silly ego fights’.

Debamitra was entangled in a legal battle with ‘Motichoor Chaknachoor’ production company Woodpecker Movies Private Limited, over non-payment of dues. She had even moved to Bombay High Court and demanded a stay order on this Nawazzuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty starrer.

In her post, Biswal said that she is sorry for not being able to save the film and she knew it had great potential. “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 hard work. But I guess not all journey are made successful (sic),” read a part of her post. 

She ended her post saying, “Sorry I could not save the film. We know what great potential it had. But I guess sometimes things get ruined even after a lot of honesty put in. 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).”

The filmmaker thanked her cast and crew and also expressed her disappointment over the fact that no will ever be able to see what she had set out to showcase through the film as a lot of changes were done in the film on the editing table.
