Nehru: The Invention Of India

Parliamentarian-author Shashi Tharoor during a relaunch of his book Nehru: The Invention Of India invited Congress former President Sonia Gandhi to inaugurate a web-series based documentary on the same book.

Tharoor also went ahead and announced about the web-series through his Twitter handle. “On Pandit Nehru's 129th birth anniversary, I am delighted to announce that my book Nehru: The Invention of India will be adapted into a web series by Sheetal Talwar as the showrunner. Onir and Bhavna Talwar to be series directors.”

A trailer of the series has also been released. “Pandit Nehru’s legacy is ours. What we are today, we owe in great measure to him. This is his story,” Tharoor’s voice plays in the background and syncs with the archival footage of the Congress leader and the early days of Independent India.

Tharoor’s bestselling non-fiction book Why I Am A Hindu (2018) is also set to be adapted into a series by Talwar.
