Recently Nawazuddin Siddiqui launched The Stranger in Me at Taj Lands’ End, Mumbai. The book written by author Neeta Shah & Aditi Mediratta is published by Om Books International.
On the occasion, the co-authors shared their experience putting together the book with moderator Salil Acharya and the audience.
Commenting on the book, author Neeta Shah said,
“Nawaz Sir is one of the most versatile superstars in our country. His own journey until here is an inspiration to many out there who want to make it on their own, in any field. I am truly honoured that Nawaz Sir has graciously agreed to unveil our book.”
The actor also had great things to say about Neeta.
“Neeta is very creative be it marketing or writing. She sees things through a very different perception which is very fascinating. Once you start reading you won’t be able to put the book down till you finish it. I wish her all the luck and success with this path she has chosen.”
When asked whether books should be adapted into films, the actor replied:
“It depends…sometimes you have to simply translate the book or sometimes you have to make an adaptation of a book. I feel books have a lot of material, if you want to make it into a web series, then you can give detailed information about the story and if you want to make it into a film, you need to highlight certain special incidents which will develop the story,”
He further added,
“The Stranger in Me has special elements. There are a lot of twists in it, the pace of this book is really fast and there is an inner connection between human emotions, so I feel there is a possibility that a film could be made on this book.”
Co-author Aditi Mediratta said:
“Nawaz Sir is an achiever and an inspiration to all who dare to dream, just like the protagonists in our book who would go all out against all odds to achieve their dreams… I’m excited for Nawaz Sir to launch our book”
Ajay Mago, of Om Books International said,
“It is rare to come across a story that explores the multiplicity of human existence in all its shades and tonalities as beautifully as The Stranger in Me does. A gripping existential tale, it has enthralled me from the very first page, and left asking for more, pretty much like every performance of the unmatched and unparalleled Nawazuddin Siddiqui.”
Head Corporate Communications, Raymond Group, Rohit Khanna says,
“We are delighted to be the official styling partners to launch a book that takes the reader on a journey”.”
