Mumbai: Aarya Babbar seems to be a man of many shades. An actor, director, lover… and now even a writer. Yes! You heard it right. Soon after Bigg Boss, ‘Babbar sher’ (as he is fondly called) plans to release a fiction novel, whose name is being kept under wraps.
“Aarya was down with jaundice a while ago and that’s when he finished writing a book within three months of conceptualizing it. It will be released by Penguin Books India,” informs his publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
Actually, the thought of penning a novel had been lingering with him from quite some time. But he was too busy with his Punjabi films to dedicate time to it earlier.
One of the successful Punjabi films Aarya acted in, co-starred another Bigg Boss contestant Minissha Lamba. Recently, there was quite a hullabaloo on the reality show, when Aarya revealed that Minissha is actually his past girlfriend.
We also hear that the book has a mischievous title. Then, is the so-called ‘fictional’ book ‘inspired’ by his ‘real life’? “All I can say is that an airplane (which is also the theme of Bigg Boss Season 8), plays an important part in his book,” mentions Dale.
“Even on the show, Aarya has maintained that he finds an airplane a very romantic place,” observes the PR specialist, who seems to be using a co-branding tactic for the book with Bigg Boss.
Aarya is perhaps the only actor to pen a fiction novel, instead of writing on a subject revolving around Bollywood. Few are aware that he has enjoyed his flings with the pen since the tender age of fourteen.
He’s been writing poems, has scripted a play called Gorky+Tinku Ke Kaarnaame, and has even written a graphic novel titled Pushpak Vimaan.
