Shahid Kapoor starrer Paathshaala, a film portraying the effect of the education system on children, will hit theatres on April 16.

Ahmed insists that the topical plot of the film is going to attract huge attention.
"Once the promos are out, the film will be all over the place in the next 15 days. The film will release on April 16," said Ahmed.
"Since the subject matter is how the education system exercises pressure on children, my film is getting a lot of attention and I have been approached by many people who want to tie up with me," he added.
The choreographer, who has films like Kaminey and Ghajini to his credit, was in the capital recently to audition kids for a new reality show Chak Dhoom Dhoom.

"The film shows Patekar’s character calling people from a reality show and asking them to audition students from his school so that they get publicity," said Ahmed.
