Mumbai: Actress-author Twinkle Khanna expressed her views and feels that it’s good to make movies from novels.




The actress stated: “I think it is a good thing to make films from novels as that will give a film a strong plot, if not anything else”.

When asked about her idea of writing a script of ‘The Legend Of Laxmi Prasad’, a collection of four short stories into a Bollywood movie to this she answered: “Well, I do not expect anything. I will decide if and when it will happen. I live in the present, and do not plan my future. How is that possible? When you read a book, you are creating a world in your head. How can somebody just replicate that”?




The actress further went on to say that: “For instance, I might just talk about a non-descriptive face in my book. When you are watching that on screen, you are getting a visual reference, and then it is limiting the imagination. Your version of the narration might just differ from the film, which is the basic difference between the two medium”.
