Percept Picture Company announced a film called Johnny Walker starring Bachchan and directed by Sircar, but the film was never made. Sircar took the film to UTV Motion Pictures, renaming it Shoebite. Percept filed a lawsuit against UTV seeking to prevent Shoebite from being made. After a long legal battle, the lawsuit was dismissed in 2012. The production of the film has been speculated to be stalled. The director of the film Shoojit Sircar made film Vicky Donor and got it released since he started to face delays in Shoebite. Sircar released Madras Cafe in 2013, and the film has now been cancelled.
