Anish Trivedi pens sequel to Jeffrey Archer’s novel for film

In what must qualify as a first in the field of literary adaptations author-columnist Anish Trivedi has written a sequel to international best-selling author Jeffrey Archer’s novel First Among Equals.

Now the story from First Among Equals is being carried forward by Trivedi in a screenplay entitled Dilli for a feature film to be produced by Sheetal Talwar.

Though not much is being revealed about the project, it is understood that the screen-sequel to Jeffrey’s novel is an Indo-Pak love story.

Says producer Talwar, “All I can reveal at the moment is that that we’ve bought the rights to Jeffrey Archer’s First Among Equals which we’ll make into a television serial eventually. And yes. Anish Trivedi has written a sequel to First Among Equals. It is based in the present day cross-border politics.”

The sequel to Archer’s novel will eventually be converted into a novel.

Says Talwar, “We’ve authorized them to publish the book three months after the film’s release.”

The film is expected to go on the floors by the end of the year.
