Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL WORLD NEWS ROUNDUP -

Sin­ga­pore firms, Aurora Me­dia and Darpan Global have teamed to set up best­selling In­dian novel “Pil­grims in the Dark” (“Timir­pan­thi”) as a fea­ture film. The com­pa­nies pre­vi­ously op­tioned film rights to the Gu­ju­rati-lan­guage novel by Dhruv Bhatt.

Award-win­ning play­wright and di­rec­tor Dakxin Ba­jrange is now at­tached to di­rect the thriller from a screen­play writ­ten by Jay Bhatt (no re­la­tion). Cast­ing is un­der way, ahead of an an­tic­i­pated shoot from the third quar­ter of next year.

With a strong fe­male pro­tag­o­nist, the highly re­searched-story de­tails how cer­tain tribes viewed steal­ing not as a crime but as a tran­scen­den­tal and in­her­ited art form. (RTRS)
