Dangal Director to turn Varun Agarwal's 'How I Braved Anu Aunty' into a movie

Nitesh Tiwari who contributed to the blockbuster movie Dangal is now working on a screen adaptation of Varun Agarwals 2012 bestseller How I Braved Anu Aunty & Co-Founded a Million Dollar Company. Producers Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur will produce the movie under their banners RSVP and Roy Kapur Films.

"We are excited to be collaborating with Nitesh on adapting Varun's incredibly relevant and hilarious book to the screen”, said Siddharth Roy Kapur.

Talking more about the film he mentioned, "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 book is a true story set in Bengaluru about pursuing your dreams, or as its author puts it, "Take the leap and then think". The movie will feature the young talent of today’s generation. They are currently evaluating who would be best suited to play the lead role.
