‘Kahaani’ to be adapted into novel

New Delhi, Feb 18: In times when several Bollywood filmmkaers are taking inspiration from books for their movies, Sujoy Ghosh’s “Kahaani” is soon to be adapted into a novel.

Advaita Kala, who has penned the script of the film, plans to write a novel on the same story line, but with a twist. The book might be launched towards the end of 2012.

“Advaita is penning the story. She is going to write it a bit differently and it won’t be like the film. So, that will be something interesting to wait and watch out for,” said Ghosh.

“Advaita’s thought process is totally different, which is good,” he added.

“Kahaani”, starring Vidya Balan, tells the tale of Vidya Bagchi, who arrives from London in search of her missing husband. Seven months pregnant and alone in a festive city, with nothing to rely on except fragments from her memories about him, Vidya is determined to unravel the truth about her husband – for herself and her unborn child.

Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, the Viacom 18 Motion Pictures co-production is set for release March 9.
