Whether we are writing a book, a song or a movie, there is always a sudden, illuminating spark of inspiration that guides us.
Our beloved Bollywood too sometimes takes inspiration from every imaginable art form. We have been inspired from Hollywood, Tollywood and even from the plays by Shakespeare since ages.
Books have been another portal of inspiration for Bollywood where the industry has managed to churn out brilliant masterpieces that have managed to enthrall the audience while simultaneously capturing the true essence of the book it was originally based upon.
