Raj Kundra’s novel to be made into an English film

A couple of years ago, Shilpa Shetty‘s husband and entrepreneur Raj Kundra had written a novel titled ‘How Not To Make Money’. Two years later, the very novel (which was inspired by a real-life story) is now being adapted into a full-fledged English feature film by the same name. And helming the screenplay is none other than the famous Ian La Frenais (who is best known for his film The Bank Job). News reports state that the duo Ian La Frenais and Raj Kundra met over dinner last week and have planned to roll the film by the year-end.


Speaking about the developments, Raj Kundra said that Ian La Frenais was the first and only choice of the producers, as he fitted the bill to a ‘T’. He added that he and his team in UK had been working to adapt the book into a film since the past two years. For the uninitiated, the book ‘How Not To Make Money’ is a London based story about three friends (Jai, Mike and Aziz). While Jai and Mike become smugglers, Aziz goes onto become a corporate lawyer who help the duo in devising a foolproof plan to get rich quickly. On a lighter note, Raj Kundra added that, given a chance, he would love to play one of the three friends.
