After two years of absence from the film industry and a not so famous film (James), debutant director Rohit Jugraj is back not with a film but a book on leprosy.
Rohit was moved to write this book after a friend of his from Bihar named Pranay who used to work for lepers in Ethiopia succumbed to the disease. The book is almost ready and will be published in March.
The entire experience has changed Rohit's attitude towards life and films who wants his films to be more close to reality. No wonder his forthcoming film is named Jan, Gan, Man which is about the awakening of the conscience.
