Gupta added, ''I had read the book in 2005 and wanted to make the film on it. I wanted Homi Adjania, the maker of BEING CYRUS, to direct it.We had met Vikas Swarup. But unfortunately the rights of the film were already sold to Danny Boyle.''

Sanjay however said that had he to make the film it would not have got the kind of international recognition it got because of Danny Boyle.

''Also we do not have the kind of support Fox Searchlight gave to DannyBoyle. Who would have given me Rs. 75 crores to make a SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE here,'' said Gupta.
