The maker of the blockbuster ‘Dangal’, Nitesh Tiwari is now working on a screen adaptation of Varun Agarwal’s 2012 bestseller ‘How I Braved Anu Aunty & Co-Founded a Million Dollar Company’.
This upcoming venture will be produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur under their banners RSVP and Roy Kapur Films respectively.
A spokesperson of Roy Kapur Films stated, “We are excited to be collaborating with Nitesh on adapting Varun’s incredibly relevant and hilarious book to the screen.”
He added, “We look forward to making a film that humorously explores the challenges of growing up in today’s India, where the traditional medicine-MBA-engineering templates of the earlier generation are competing with the excitement of ‘starting-up’ on your own.”
The novel is based on true events about pursuing your dreams and is set in Bengaluru. The author puts it as, “Take the leap and then think”.
This upcoming project will see “one of the top stars from the younger set”. The team is still evaluating as to who will suit the role well.
