Viacom 18 Motion Pictures’ suspense thriller, Kahaani is soon to be adapted into a novel. Advaita Kala, who has penned the script of the film, is planning on writing a novel on the same story line, but with a twist in the end. The book is expected to be launched by the end of 2012.
Says Sujoy Ghosh, director of Kahaani, “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. Advaita’s thought process is totally different, which is good.”
Kahaani tells the tale of Vidya Bagchi (played by Vidya Balan) who arrives in Kolkata 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.
Kahaani releases on 9 March 2012.
