Deepa Mehta will begin the shooting of her film, which is based on Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children. The book, incidentally, won the Booker Prize. Deepa is a critically acclaimed and controversial director who has directed films like Fire and Water.

As quoted by the IANS, Mehta said, “We’ve just finished the screenplay and we’re going to do the casting in the next couple of weeks. We hope to start filming in September.”

For the time being it looks like Nandita Das, Seema Biswas and Shabana Azmi will be cast in the film for sure. There are also reports that Rani Mukherjee could be signed up.
