For the first time a blog will be adapted into a full-fledged film
While blogs have become an indispensable part of the media today, with writers penning their thoughts on a variety of issue, never has it inspired a filmmaker to base a project on it. Up until now
Sources say Anurag Kashyap’s production house with Vikas Bahl and Vikramaditya Motwane has bought the rights of a blog, written by 27-year-old former journalist Gaurav Solanki, to turn it into a film.
Says a source, “They have bought the rights of Hisar Mein Hahakar, a story that was posted on the blog in three different parts.”
The creative pieces had interesting names as well -- Vehshi khet aur geeta ka badla, Hunterwali Shweta aur bhagey huye teen ladke and Kuch SMS aur Hisar mein pyar ki hatya.
Insiders say the three sections would be made into one film. It has been tentatively titled Hisar Mein Hahakar.
Vikas Bahl remained unavailable for comment.
