Poet-lyricist, Prasoon Joshi today said it is impossible to bring the exact vision of the author on the big screen while adapting a work of literature.

During a panel discussion on the sidelines of International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa, Joshi, who is also the chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC),said when a writer pens a book he is putting forward his imagination, but if a film is made with his work as a source there is huge possibility of it being different from what the author originally perceived.

He said the two creations co-exist and it does not mean that the book is superior or the film is inferior. The National Award-winning lyricist said many authors and poets have made a switch to cinema because there was a dearth of people interested in literature.
