Filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari has turned author with her debut fiction novel, titled Mapping Love.

The 41-year-old director’s book will be published by Rupa Publications in May this year. Iyer Tiwari, known for acclaimed films like Nil Battey Sannata, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Panga, said it took her three years to bring the book to life.

As a storyteller, every once in a while there are stories I want to say in a medium that brings out the essence in true spirit. Mapping Love is that story of falling in love with art of writing all over again with stillness. It has taken three years typing it to life and I am filled with happiness as Rupa Publications brings my debut novel to everyone,” the director said in a statement.

In an Instagram post, Rupa Publications shared a teaser of the book.

“Set in the breathtaking jungles of India, this enthralling story with intertwining tales will tug your heart. An artist, writer and filmmaker, her films Nil Battey Sannata, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Ghar ki Murgi, Panga are entertaining as well as thought-provoking,” the post read.

The director last helmed Panga, featuring actors Kangana Ranaut, Richa Chadha, Jassie Gill, Neena Gupta among others.
