The famed writer Vikash Raj Saxena has debuted donning the hat of a director where he has weaved his magic on the highly rated Love In Modern Times by making a short film titled Zindagi. Zindagi will be based on one of the short stories of the exciting collection.
Love In Modern Times by the acclaimed author and literary critic, Nitish Raj has already stirred up a storm in the literary fraternity with his upcoming masterpiece. The exquisite short story collection which has already acquired the rare distinction of receiving an Advance Royalty of 25,000 copies has been highly awaited by the readers from all over the world.
And at a time when filmmakers are in constant hunt for exclusive content, it comes as a no brainer that Love In Modern Times would have been on their radar. But as there is always the first mover advantage, Viewfinder Production in association with Literia Insight has successfully secured the deal with Mr. Raj for adapting one of his stories of the upcoming collection in a short film.
In the words of Mr. Vikash Raj Saxena, “We are extremely pleased after getting the affirmation nod for adaptation. We are more than sure that the upcoming film will be a treat to the audience who had always looked for content driven films rather than masala movies. It has been a delight for us to sign the young literary stalwart who has been an inspiration to millions of youth in the country.”
Nitish Raj first came into limelight after securing the Advance Royalty deal who has already made a mark as a literary critic and columnist. Love In Modern Times is a collection of 20 short stories revolving around the normal fallacies of life which we are accustomed to endure. Whether it be the romantic liaisons or the deteriorating relations in a society these all have been the central theme of the stories.
As Raj says, “Modernity has always been a testing ground of our morality and the stories will continue to haunt our soul.”
