3 #Cos­mochats with Amish

Cosmopolitan (India) - - LIFESTYLIST -

Why did you de­cide to tell Shiva’s story? AT: “It be­gan as a pure philo­soph­i­cal the­sis that some­how emerged as an ad­ven­ture for me. I’m a vo­ra­cious reader and I’d never writ­ten fic­tion be­fore Im­mor­tals. You could say I’ve done about 30 years of re­search to write th­ese books.”

Can we ex­pect a movie adap­ta­tion soon? AT: “Yes! In fact Karan Jo­har has just ac­quired the In­dian lan­guage rights of the book and they’re work­ing on the script as we speak.”

The one book that changed your life... AT: “I used to read a lot of Ayn Rand when I was in col­lege and that had a big im­pact on me back then. But as I’ve grown older, I find her philoso­phies a lit­tle ruth­less.” We caught up with the au­thor of the grossly suc­cess­ful Shiva Tril­ogy, Amish Tri­pathi while he was in Delhi, re­cently.

Did you ever imag­ine your books would be this suc­cess­ful? Amish Tri­pathi: “I didn’t even im­age my books would get pub­lished! I’m way out of my league in that sense.”
