Sanjay Gupta to produce a film based on Chitra Divakurni Banerjee's best seller! He is all set to make a film based on a book close to his heart. This is the first time that Sanjay is planning a film based on book, revealing a completely different side of him - the soft and sensitive side that only few are aware.

The story of 'Vine of Desire' about two half sisters impressed the director so much that he instantly decided to give a vision to it.

Written by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's, 'Vine of Desire' is a sequel to 'Sister of My Heart'.

Sanjay said that Divakaruni's book had always fascinated him. 'I was specially impressed by Vine of Desire. I could visualize the entire story while reading it. It was like watching a film in my mind.'

Sanjay is confident of doing full justice to author Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's book. 'There's this usual perception that film directors cannot do justice to stories of novel writers. The director's vision does not match up to the authors. Thus disappointing the viewer! But that has not been the case with classics. Films like DEVDAS and PARINEETA have done pretty well for themselves. I am sure the same will be the case with 'Vine of Desire'.'

Good friend Pooja Bhatt's comment only further sparked off the desire in Sanjay to make 'Vine of Desire' into a film. He revealed, 'Pooja said 'The book makes me want to take up acting once again.' She was so impressed with it.' And Sanjay has no qualms about casting Pooja in the lead. 'If she is game to doing my film then I have no problems casting her in it,' says Gupta who is also working on MILTE HAI with Meghna Gulzar.

So Sanjay 'blockbuster' Gupta is giving his tough and rough side - fast bikes and hi-fi action flicks a break.
