Ruskin Bond makes first movie appearance in Saat Khoon Maaf
The prolific English writer of children's works and more, who lives amidst a large adopted family in a cottage in Mussorie ("Where the grass is still green and the air is still free").
An Indian author of British origin, Bond's writing has lured several filmmakers into making films of his novels. ‘The Flight of Pigeons,’ for instance, was adapted by Merchant Ivory films to make the Shashi Kapoor-starrer Junoon. This is the second time that Bhardwaj is adapting Bond's book, the first being Blue Umbrella.
