Ruskin Bond, the famous author who wrote Susanna’s Seven Husbands was brought into 70mm screens as Vishal Bhardwaj’s 7 Khoon Maaf in 2010. The celebrated writer who has earlier collaborated with Vishal for the films like The Blue Umbrella (2005) and 7 Khoon Maaf (2011) says he would love to work with him again. When asked when he will work with the director again, Bond told “Vishal Bhardwaj adapted two of my stories for films.
One was 7 Khoon Maaf from my short story Susanna’s Seven Husbands and The Blue Umbrella from my children’s story of the same name.’He is my neighbour in Mussoorie and I would love to collaborate with him again,He was interested to make something on his stories of Mr Oliver, who is a schoolmaster, from the book called Mr Oliver’s Diary.
They have also discussed some other stories, of a very different nature. I am sure we will make something soon enough. As of now, his stories are being enjoyed by fans of the digital platform. He has joined hands with ZEE5 for the web series Parchhayee: Ghost Stories by Ruskin Bond.
