Known for her daring choice of subjects in filmmaking, director Deepa Mehta has now taken up yet another challenge that of adapting Salman Rushdie's 'Midnight's Children' into a film.
The Booker prize winning title by Rushdie incorporates ambiguous themes of 'magic realism,' said to be almost impossible to be portrayed on the visual medium.
But that has not deterred the director who in her own words "loves challenges" and took the project because of its formidable nature.
"There is no method to my madness. I love challenges and adapting 'Midnight's Children' is a challenge for me but it is very fascinating at the same time," Mehta told a reporter in an interview.
