3 #Cosmochats with Amish
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.”
