Anmol Malik releases his second novel entitled “A Plane Story”
She may be the daughter of renowned musician Anu Malik, but Anmol Malik has carved out her place as a writer and accomplished. After the success of her first novel ‘Three Impossible Wishes’ comes her second titled ‘A Plane Story’ published by Harper Collins.
‘A Plane Story’ is also a romantic comedy and takes us through the life of Dev and Tara, two strangers on a plane to Paris, who have the same mission. What follows is what this funny and adorable story is about. Anmol Malik declares that she wanted to “write a movie in a book” and adds: “I never control how the story unfolds. Because my training in cinema and creative writing has been so rigorous that the format is deeply rooted in me. I took all of these extra courses during my business studies at the University of Warwick (UK) to become a screenwriter. The on-the-job work has helped me a lot. My first favorite writer was Richard Curtis, a screenwriter, and I appreciate how movies can say the same in a simple way. They have a certain rhythm and it is this sense of rhythm that the musician in me has captured.
Romantic comedies have captured the attention of young and old, but was it important to have a sense of humor to burn a good story? âI write to get away from it all; just for me. There have been a number of tough times in my journey and I’m sure everyone has faced their fair share of bad times. But I think I go through my own always seeing the funniest side of them. People find different things funny, but I think I’ve been lucky with my readers connecting with my sense of humor! “
So, does Anmol aspire to be the Sophie Kinsella of India? âI grew up with Sophie Kinsella, Meg Cabot, Helen Fielding, Anuja Chauhan, Neil Gaiman, Salman Rushdie, Agatha Christie, Isaac Asimovâ¦ so many absolutely inspiring authors. It’s intimidating. Currently, I aim to be just me! Ultimately, I want my writing to be identified as heartwarming, yet smart, crisp and somehow heartwarming, âconcludes Anmol with a smile.
