At a recent book launch in Bandra, John told CS, “When you start looking at a book as a producer, the first thing that comes to your mind is that how are you going to convert that book into a story.”

He further believes, “Books are a great inspiration for films, I feel. I like reading inspirational books. A book that I really admire is Jonathan Livingston Seagull. It’s a novella. I even like reading fiction. There is so much that you can draw from these books that can be made into films.”
