Quentin Tarantino’s script of Inglorious Basterds was out on the net much before the film released. Nobody was bothered about the twists and the turns. Call it confidence, great promotional tool or the maverick’s way in movieland. But for us, it was a great treat.

Its easy to locate the script of many hollywood/world cinema titles on the net. But when it comes to desi films, we are miserable at documenting our cinema. Forget the script, we dont know how to take care of the print also. For fans of Lage Raho Munnabhai, there is some great news. And if you are writer, look no further. According to Sunday Mid-day, the screenplay of Lage Raho Munnabhai will be out soon. To quote….

Om Books International is releasing the 350-page screenplay (priced at Rs 395) on December 7, at a function that is expected to have Lage Raho Munna Bhai’s producer-writer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, director Rajkumar Hirani, actor Sanjay Dutt and 3 Idiots star Aamir Khan in attendance.

The book will be in Roman script, with the Hindi dialogues as they appeared in the film. Says Om Books International head, Ajay Mago, “When I met Vinod (Chopra), we thought it would be a great idea to publish all his films in screenplay form, starting with Lage Raho Munna Bhai. In August 2009, we began it all.

You can read the full report here. And excited by the idea, Vidhu Vinod Chopra is now planning to release the script of all his feature films, starting from Parinda to Eklavya. And even the ones that he produced (Parineeta, 3 Idiots). To read Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s interview on the same issue click here.
