Smuggler Nabs A “White Tiger”

Smuggler Films will adapt India-themed Man Booker Prize winner “The White Tiger” into a feature film says Variety.

Aravind Adiga wrote the novel which tells the story of Balram Halwai, a rough-around-the-edges, politically incorrect rickshaw driver who struggles to escape his lower caste and poor upbringing by taking a driving job for a wealthy boss — and winds up committing a murder.

The book purposefully paints an unglamorous portrait of a changing India, suggesting success and murder are inexorably linked.
