Ruskin Bond to work with Vishal Bhardwaj again

Ruskin Bond, the famous author who wrote Susanna's Seven Husbands was brought into 70mm screens as Vishal Bhardwaj's 7 Khoon Maaf in 2010.

The celebrated writer who has earlier collaborated with Vishal for the films like The Blue Umbrella (2005) and 7 Khoon Maaf (2011) says he would love to work with him again.

It has been a while since Bhardwaj and Bond teamed up for a project.

When asked when he will work with the director again, Bond told IANS, "Vishal Bhardwaj adapted two of my stories for films. One was 7 Khoon Maaf from my short story Susanna's Seven Husbands and The Blue Umbrella from my children's story of the same name.''

''He is my neighbour in Mussoorie and I would love to collaborate with him again,'' said Ruskin.

"He was interested to make something on my stories of Mr. Oliver, who is a schoolmaster, from my book called Mr Oliver's Diary. We have also discussed some other stories, of a very different nature. I am sure we will make something soon enough," he added on working with the director again.

Talking about his cameo in Priyanka Chopra starrer 7 Khoon Maaf in 2010, the writer said, ''For 7 Khoon Maaf, I did collaborate on the screenplay, developing the short story into an 80-page novella. I even had a small role in the film, of a priest. I wonder why no one's offered me a role after that, though!"

7 Khoon Maaf is based on the short story Sussana's Seven Husbands written by Ruskin Bond. Directed by Vishal Bharadwaj, it deals with the lead character of Susanna which was played by Priyanka Chopra.

Sussana is hungry for love and will go to any extent to find it in its purest form. In her quest for the perfect man, she gets married a number of times as each of her husbands die mysteriously.

The film was released in 2011.
