Apurva Asrani’s Original Script For ‘Simran’ Out; Writer Urges Audience To Judge It

On Sunday, writer Apurva Asrani announced that he would release his version of the script for Simran, i.e before it was allegedly tweaked by Kangana Ranaut. On Tuesday evening, he released the script.

The script, a contrary to what was shown on-screen, is pegged to be a dark, gritty thriller as opposed to a screwball ‘slice-of-life’ sort of film. Responses to the original script have mostly been praises for the writer.

Meanwhile, Hansal Mehta who had deleted his Twitter account, returned to the social networking platform and thanked viewers for loving as well as panning his latest movie Simran.


Simran, which released on September 15, has faced a wave of criticism for its screenplay and plot, even though Kangana was lauded for her acting skills.


Trouble brewed between Kangana and Apurva in April this year after the actress claimed that she turned the script from a crime thriller to a “slice of life” comedy. Soon enough, Asrani wrote a Facebook post in which he attacked director Hansal Mehta and Kangana, taking offence to the fact that she was offered additional writing credit in the film. 

Apurva blamed Kangana for the rift between him and his Aligarh director, and even wished Mehta showed some spine. In retaliation, Kangana went on record to claim that he didn’t want her to get any writing credits in the first place.
