Vi­vaan Shah turns nov­el­ist

Mid Day - - CITY -

NASEERUDDIN and Ratna Pathak Shah’s youngest son Vi­vaan has al­ready proved his métier as an ac­tor both, in theatre and Bol­ly­wood. Now, the ju­nior Shah, we hear, in busy pen­ning a crime thriller. To be pub­lished by Pen­guin Ran­dom House at the end of this year, the book ti­tled Liv­ing Bell, is set in the seedy un­der­belly of Mum­bai and tells the story of Nadeem Sayed Khatib, who is sent to ex­tract rent from one of the ten­ants in the build­ing by his land­lord. But, he finds the man mur­dered, and him­self at the heart of a con­spir­acy. We al­ready think the plot is juicy enough for a film, hope­fully scripted by Vi­vaan him­self.
