Dinesh Vijan to adapt 'Vichhoda' by Harinder Sikka, writer behind 'Raazi'
The company has acquired the rights to adapt Sikka’s post-Partition separation novel ‘Vichhoda: In the Shadow of Longing’ into a feature film.
Starting in 1950, against the backdrop of the Nehru-Liaquat Pact, it is the story of Bibi Amrit Kaur, whose life, as the book’s blurb states, has been literally torn apart by the 1947 riots.
“She’s now in a different country with a different identity. She accepts this new life gracefully and begins a new chapter. She gets married and has two children. Life, however, has something else in store for her. It breaks her apart. Again,” says the book’s blurb.
