After the delightful ‘Nil Battey Sannata,’ director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s next film ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ featuring Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao is certainly one of the most awaited movie of the year.

The talented director recently revealed an interesting detail about her second film. While talking to a daily Ashwiny mentioned that ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is actually an adaptation of a French novel titled – ‘The Ingredients Of Love.’

Speaking about it, Ashwiny said, “I was tired, but I couldn't put the book down. I even made Nitesh (her husband and director of ‘Dangal’) read it and he agreed that the basic story could become the theme for a film. I was so excited, I even told my producers, Abhay Chopra and Guno Chopra (late filmmaker BR Chopra's grandsons) about the story immediately. They put in a lot of effort to contact the publishers in France and procure the rights to the book.”

Nitesh Tiwari, then Indianized the story and changed the locations from France to Uttar Pradesh. Nitesh said, “It's difficult to adapt any book into a film. The French settings are alien to us, so we've only retained the basic theme and infused our own colours, quirks and characters into the story. The parents, friends and lovers, their professions and their basic habits have all been adapted to our culture. I got time to work on the script because Ashwiny was caught up with the post-production of her first film. I just hope that the audience likes my first tryst with breezy cinema.”

With two masterminds like them behind the film, one can be rest assured that ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is definitely going to be an entertainer.
