The film would soon be found in the form of literature, as confirmed by director Homi Adajania
Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor starrer Finding Fanny has already become one of the most anticipated films of this year. The film’s quirkiness will now be seen in the form a novel, as revealed by its director Homi Adajania, who further stated that the plotline was adapted from 200-plus page book which is set to hit the stands next year.
Homi while speaking about the same said in a statement, ““My co-writer, Kersi Khambatta, wrote the novel based on my short story of Finding Fanny, and then we used that to develop the screenplay. My only issue was that I told him to keep the book on ice until the film was out.”
He further adds,that although he prefers books over films, he wanted people to watch Finding Fanny on the silver screen first. “Now that it is releasing soon, Kersi can pimp the novel to publishers. It’s a funny read, and way more convoluted than the script,” he said.
The duo reportedly has an offer by a leading publisher. The co-writer of the film Kersi Khambhatta while talking about his experience on writing teh screenplay for the film said, “his process (of adapting a screenplay from a book) gave us lots of colour, description and detail to play with. It eventually lent itself to a fatter and fuller screenplay as well. Our main motive was to make the movie first. Now that it is done, publishers have expressed an interest in reading the original manuscript of the novel.”
Well we bet Finding Fanny would be an absolute knockout but would the book have a similar impact on the reader? Let us wait and watch!
