National Award winning screenwriter Juhi Chaturvedi who wrote celebrated films like Vicky Donor, was at the 20th edition of FICCI FRAMES on Thurdsay. The writer said writing was a time-consuming process and the pressure of quantity affects the quality.
Juhi was highlighting one of the problems writers face these days. She said, “Writing process takes a lot of time. Purely for financial reasons, writers sign multiple projects taking the signing amounts to run their houses.”
“The dagger is then on their head. In the process, the quality suffers. It would be great if a good lump sum is given for those one or two projects that a writer sign in one year,” said the writer who delivered some of the acclaimed films like Piku and October and also wrote the story of upcoming film The Sky Is Pink featuring Priyanka Chopra.
