(Journey of ‘Title is Untitled’ – Part 3)
This is in continuation to series of article (Read: Journey of Title is Untitled – Part 1 and My would be (husband) raped me! ) to give insights for aspiring writers how the book evolved. I read various articles in newspapers about groom kidnappers with an intend for a force marriage. I spoke to some friends if they could help me to get in touch with someone who has seen or had personal experience. I was lucky to get find one who opened and provided bone tickling information. I was laughing through with the situation of a man who is forced to marry a rejected proposal. I didn’t want to pen it as a serious story and decided to watch ‘DDLJ’ movie to just refresh. As DDLJ movie progressed I felt how if the bride had to kidnap groom and Aditya Chopra had to direct it. I tried to put into a shoe of a director and visualised the whole story for next few days. This formed chapter 8 Dilwale Dulha le Jayaenge that brings a case of ‘Groom Kidnapping’ in dark humour.
Thanks Aditya Chopra for give us DDLJ and helping me to create ‘Dilwale Dulha le Jayenge’.
