The World of Hrishikesh Mukherjee, now in paperback

The cover for the paperback edition of The World of Hrishikesh Mukherjee: The Filmmaker Everyone Loves is here, and it uses two of the paintings I had independently commissioned for the book. Here goes:

The paperback will be out in September. I like the feel of the original hardback, especially given the size of the book and the 16-page inset, but am looking forward to seeing this edition. 

(Also treat this as the monthly plug for the book. Some earlier posts about it are here. And here are two excerpts, this one in Mint Lounge and this on the blog)


  1. Great cover. It sooo looks like billboard and hoarding art!
    Who's the artist?

  2. Gunjan Ahlawat. More about the four artworks here.
