Advaita Kala, the literary creator of the hugely successful "Kahaani"- in an exclusive conversation with Nishi Roy from B'khush . Read on to know more about what motivates and inspires Kala.
The stupendous reaction to your creation, Vidya Bagchi, how does it make you feel? How much of you is there in her?
Advaita : Very gratified that people found her believable and relatable. It’s a bit of a private endeavour for me – creating female characters that are in some way representative of women. Also the idea of pregnancy, vulnerability, strength not using her as a honey trap..these were things that were central to me when I wrote her. There are always bits of me in all the characters I write and stories I tell, so its not just Vidya Bagchi but also Aisha Bhatia (my novel Almost Single) who has some of me in her.
