R Balki wanted to adapt Half Pants, Full Pants a TV series starring Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The book’s writer, Anand Suspi, revealed this in a recent interview with Indian Express.
Suspi revealed that the Ki and Ka director had an “interesting idea to promote this on the small screen and tried to put the whole project together”.
Anand Suspi adds that the director helped him a lot with the book. “It wasn’t that he would direct this. He graciously and voluntarily became the creative head of this project and decided to put the various pieces together for me. With time, certain things didn’t materialise and this didn’t take off,” he said.
Plans are on to make the book into a TV series. Balki is no longer attached to direct the project, reports say.
