Amitabh Bachchan’s shoebite was always a working title to begin with. Shooting of the film is now more than 50% completed; it has got a final title for itself. The title ‘Jonny Mastana’ has been given to the film. The news has been confirmed by a reliable source attached to the film "Yes, the film finally has a title now. It would now be known as Johnny Mastana. The film's first set of teaser posters are already out and they have Johnny Mastana imprinted on them. In any case Shoebite was never a confirmed title so it can't be said that the film has gone though a title change."
But why a title like ‘Johnny Mastana’ has been chosen? While asking this question she replied “Doesn't Johnny Mastana sound more universal in nature? The film is meant for all segments of audience and Johnny Mastana gives just the right indications. We all love this title here and the moment it was first suggested, we just grabbed it with open arms."
Amitabh Bachchan needless to say is doing the leading role. Also Jimmy Sheirgill, Sarika and Dia Mirza are in the key roles. Since the film is touted to be revolving around the journey of a man across the entire nation, it involves numerous location changes.
