B.L. Gautam, who was associated with films like ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’ and ‘A Wednesday’, has turned writer and his first new novel is ‘Andy Leelu’.
The novel, according to Gautam, seeks inspiration from one of his ‘naughty’ cousins, who died at a young age.
The story of a boy is set in 1962, when villages were suffering from cholera and famine and the country was fighting a war with China.
‘The novel is written in such a lucid way that reader will not stop comparing their lives to those of the characters of the novel. In today’s digital world, people are going away from reading habit and want them take interest in books and I am hopeful that by my ‘Andy Leelu’, I will succeed in my aim,’ Gautam said in a statement.
