Simran: Writer Apurva Asrani releases 'original' script of Kangana Ranaut starrer on Twitter
Days after the release of Hansal Mehta's slice-of-life entertainment Simran, writer Apurva Asrani has released the 'original' script of the film on Twitter.
For what it's worth, the writer has posted his version of the film on the micro-blogging site, leaving it to the people to decide what would have been better — the Simran he had imagined or the Simran that finally made its way to the theaters.
Here's his tweet:

Although the film was expected to shake things up at the box office, considering Ranaut's star power, a slew of explosive interviews in the face of glaring controversies, it could not live up to expectations.
Collecting about Rs 13 crore, the film garnered mixed-reviews for its weak storyline and a convoluted second half. Asrani's latest move has Twitter divided.
While some people are coming out in his support, deeming his script an impeccable piece of art, some are pointing out the scenes which are allegedly missing from his script but are there in the entertainer.
"Some bits evolved" is a misleading statement. The most interesting scene at the gas station, charged with tension, isn't in your script. — Devendra (@devilisinthede3) September 19, 2017
If that was truly Kangana's addition or Hansal's idea, they single handedly elevated your flat, verbose scene where she just complains.

Poorly written but top notch performance by kangna so if it's written by you also nothing to boast about man !! — Namrata Pathak (@Namratanamrvani) September 20, 2017
This script is far more superior than what I saw on screen.
