The Japanese Wife Book Launch
While the Rahul Bose and Raima Sen starrer The Japanese Wife is still under production, the book by the same name was recently launched in Mumbai. Among celebrities present were Konkona Sen and Ranvir Shorey. For Konkona, there were two reasons for attending: Firstly, her mother Aparna Sen is making the film adaptation; secondly, it seemed like a nice event to attend along with boyfriend Ranvir Shorey.
Moreover, all three celebs are book-lovers. “I read a wide variety of books,” says Konkona, “I don’t like one particular genre. I like reading about true crime. I like novels.” Ranvir also has an eclectic taste, but admits he is quite lazy when it comes to reading.
With Konkona attending to support her mom, and Ranvir attending for Konkana, love was all around at the launch. The book, too, is a romantic one. Catch the trio speak about the differences between the book and the movie, and list books they enjoy.
