Commenting on the occasion of the World Digital Premiere of Albert Pinto ko Gussa Kyu Atta Hai, the award-winning actress Nandita Das said, “The film Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyu Aata Hai is special in many ways. These days independent films often get sidetracked by more mainstream films in getting adequate screens, good timings and enough number of days for it to have a good word of mouth. I am happy that the film is going to are Premiere digitally on ShemarooMe. We all know Shemaroo Entertainment for long as they have had a huge bank of films, across all genres. The film has much to say and reflects the angst felt by the youth, which is quite relevant today. It is good that audiences have so many choices in OTT platforms and ShemarooMe is the new one to be launched. I wish them and the film the very best.”

Lead actor of Albert Pinto ko Gussa Kyu Atta Hai, Manav Kaul said, “I am actually quite excited to see our film Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyu Aata Hai to be premiered digitally on ShemarooMe. Our film is in line with Saeed Akhtar Mirza’s 1980 classic movie.  I had to do a lot of preparation in order to get into the skin of the character and match the brilliance of ace actor - Naseeruddin Shah. Also, I feel privileged that an entertainment house like Shemaroo who has been in the business is showcasing the movie on their OTT platform ‘ShemarooMe’. The OTT medium is becoming very exciting and it would be great to connect with the audience, reaching out not only to the hinterlands of India but also to global audiences in the USA who enjoy Bollywood.”

Director of Albert Pinto ko Gussa Kyu Atta Hai, Soumitra Ranade said, ‘In the earlier days, a Friday would decide the fate of a film but that’s not the case anymore. There are many more avenues now, especially for independent cinema. ShamarooMe comes at perfect time and it is fabulous that our film Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai? is releasing on this OTT. Shemaroo has a huge track record of being in the entertainment industry and I am sure the film will become accessible to hundreds and thousands of people across the country. I wish them the very best.’

Barun Sobti, the talented actor from the movie 22 Yards said, “I am happy about my movie 22 Yards premiering on ShemarooMe. With changing times and audiences getting hooked to OTT platforms, it is nice to have an OTT platform like ShemarooMe who is giving Indian filmmakers a stage to showcase their movies and connect with a larger set of audience. '22 Yards' does not focus on the game of cricket but rather on the life of a sport-agent and the challenges he faces. I hope this movie is able to connect with the audience and provide complete entertainment.”
