Booker prize winning author Salman Rushdie has also lent his voice to a song in Deepa Mehta’s film adaptation of his book Midnight’s Children.
He said that it was a horrifying moment, when he had to sing and that he felt like hiding behind furniture when that part came in the movie.
He had come to the Landmark Store to promote the movie with Deepa Mehta. The movie is going to be released on the 1st of February 2012.
Mr. Rushdie is also the screenplay writer in the movie and is also a narrator in the film. Deepa said that he wasn’t the easiest person to convince. She felt that Salman had to be the one who was narrating as the narrator in the movie was supposed to be the older version of Salim.
