Author Varun Agarwal’s bestselling book, How I Braved Anu Aunty And Co-Founded A Million Dollar Company, is being adapted for a movie titled Bas Karo Aunty, and he is nothing but grateful, pens a heartfelt note on his social media.
Joint collaboration of Nitesh Tiwari, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Star Studios, Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur, the film titled Bas Karo Aunty, is helmed by debutante Abhishek Sinha, and it is adapted from Varun Agarwal’s book.
Varun Agarwal took to his social media profile and shared pictures with entire ensemble and producers of the film and wrote, “Big Announcement : my book is getting made into a movie. And it’s all thanks to these wonderful and super nice people. In 2016 @ashwinyiyertiwari (director of Bareilly Ki Barfi) found my book and gave to @niteshtiwari22 (director of Dangal) and they decided to make a movie on it. Had Ashwiny not read my book probably none of this would have happened and I can’t thank the universe enough for throwing my book on her lap”
“Coincidentally I had met Siddharth Roy Kapur (producer Dangal) in 2014 when we were both giving lectures at IIM Lucknow. I had given him my book on his flight back to read. And life has such a funny way of coming a full circle. He founded @roykapurfilms in 2016 and he decided to produce the film under his banner along with Ronnie Screwvala (producer Uri)”
“I wrote this book in 2012 and I had no idea that one day a movie would get made on it. I still remember when I was writing the book I wondered who would read it and probably it’s a foolish thing to write the book. Once a great man said “stay hungry and stay foolish” and I assure you that every word of it is true. If a regular middle class boy from Bangalore can dream it then so can you. Stay hungry and stay foolish. Great things are just round the corner:) This is for you Mayank. I love you and I miss you :) @ashwinyiyertiwari @niteshtiwari22 @roykapurfilms @ronnie.screwvala @foxstarhindi @rsvpmovies @ishwaksingh @mahima_makwana @gauravpandey7697 @mehrotranikhil” read the full note.
The young-adult comedy drama stars Ishwak Singh and Mahima Makwana, the film has gone on the floors today.
