You can read more about the book here:
In this book, I have chosen to share not just my creative, but also my emotional, political, and spiritual experiences of the six years I spent with Manto. It was a very personal journey and while writing the book, I traveled with the film all over again. I believe, together, the images and words will tell you a different story. If you have seen the film, I think you will enjoy reading about the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of making it. If you have not seen the film, I hope this book piques your interest enough that you will want to see it. I have been as candid as I could in sharing the excitements, the challenges, and all that it took me to make the film. With Manto and I, my journey feels complete.
