Ghosh’s Ahalya not inspired by Roald Dahl story

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

Di­rec­tor Su­joy Ghosh (left) says that his latest short film Ahalya is not inspired by au­thor Roald Dahl’s story.

The film is an epic thriller where the fate of an ap­sara, a ma­har­ishi and rain god In­dra is sealed by a curse. “I’m amused by mur­mur­ings that my short film Ahalya is ‘inspired’ from a Dahl story. I’m amused be­cause any­one who reads, knows that Dahl is an au­thor of chil­dren’s books. My film, as is ev­i­dent, is an age-old myth, adult in na­ture, adapted with a fem­i­nist twist. I am, how­ever, flat­tered over the com­par­isons with Dahl’s work he is, of course, one of the great­est chil­dren’s au­thors of the 20th cen­tury,” he tweeted.
