Midnight’s Children on the big screen

movie Midnight's children

Midnight’s Children, Mehta’s adaptation of the Booker Prize-winning novel by Salman Rushdie, opens in Indian cinemas on Friday. The film, which chronicles the story of an Indian family living through the tumultuous events of the country’s recent past, features a voice over by Rushdie.

The book’s depiction of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s role during India’s Emergency in the 1970s had thrown the film’s screening into doubt

Mehta, 63, spoke to Reuters about Midnight’s Children, adapting a book for the screen and “un-filmable films.”
