Shoojit accepts damage to govt. property charges!

Shoojit Sircar, the director of the Amitabh-Diya starrer, SHOBITE, has accepted that the film's unit damaged government property during the Shimla shoot, earlier this week.
As per sources, the unit of the film was shooting some important portions of SHOBITE, near the chief minister's residence, located southwest of the Mall, towards Chota Shimla. For one of the scenes, featuring Amitabh Bachchan, a foot of the security railing was cut to install a camera in the high security zone. A section of the local media captured the damaged railing on camera. When the pictures became public, officials of Shimla's 'Nagar Nigam' panicked due to the incident taking place in a VIP zone, not normally accessible/allowed for shooting.
Shoojit Sircar regrets the incident, but adds that there were no malafide intentions. While the railing has since been repaired by the film's unit, the shooting of SHOEBITE continues in Shimla.
