Terming this ‘reverse spin’, Harlequin India Country Head and Publishing Director Amrita Chowdhury said that the tie-up was an attempt to tap new markets where the readers would want to know more about the movie.
"Usually, we have films based on books, but there are many things in a film that can't be communicated to the audience. This tie-up is complementary to what you will watch in the film," she pointed out.
"The novel will talk about characters: How they met and focus on areas that are not shown in the film. It will take off from where the film begins or ends. These are original episodes which are not in the movie," she added.
The trio of Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Riteish Deshmukh had featured in the Indra Kumar-directed 2004 film ‘Masti’ that had left the audience in splits. They are now back in its sequel, ‘Grand Masti’, to release September 13.
Another book, 'Satyagraha: The Story Behind the Revolution’, based on the film directed by Prakash Jha, was launched here. The book traces the months of hard work, fun on the sets, costume crises and other events that tell behind-the-scene tales.
