So here goes.

How did this book happen and why did you choose to write about it?
I wrote a film script titled "Pehele aap" a romantic comedy story. I circulated my script in various production houses but unfortunately, none showed any interest in my script. So I decided to convert my script into a novel- First You Plz.

When did you take to writing?
I started writing from my school days. I used to write poems and short stories. But I never had my blog, not even a diary. Few scribbles here and there on my book that’s how I started.

Where do you usually write? What is your favorite setting to write in?
I usually write on my mobile and favorite setting to write is my home.

Did this story  come to you easily or did you find yourself stuck with a writer’s block sometimes?
'First You Plz' was fairly clear on my mind. So penning it down was not an issue. But on one occasion where I was stuck badly was to pen down boy’s feelings for girl as I have never seen boys loving their girls truly. So penning down boy’s side was stuff.

Live a simple life. Communicate, share your feelings and make your life simple. Missing someone, call them.  Have problems in life then discuss and solve it. If you love someone, say it. Don’t be in First You Plz frame of mind.

How has your experience been so far in the literary world? Any highs or lows being a part of this space that you would like to share here?
