Anish Trivedi pens sequel to Jeffrey Archer`s novel for film
Mumbai: In what must qualify as a first in the field of literary adaptations, author-columnist Anish Trivedi has written a sequel to international best-selling author Jeffrey Archer`s novel `First Among Equals`.
Now the story from "First Among Equals" is being carried forward by Trivedi in a screenplay entitled "Dilli" for a feature film to be produced by Sheetal Talwar.
Though not much is being revealed about the project, it is understood that the screen-sequel to Archer`s novel is an Indo-Pak love story.
Said Talwar: "All I can reveal at the moment is that that we`ve bought the rights to Jeffrey Archer`s `First Among Equals`, which we`ll make into a television serial eventually. And yes, Anish Trivedi has written a sequel to `First Among Equals`. It is based in the present-day cross-border politics."
The sequel to Archer`s novel will eventually be converted into a novel.
"We`ve authorised them to publish the book three months after the film`s release," said Talwar.
The film is expected to go on the floors by the end of the year.
