Speaking on the tie-up, Utpal Acharya, Managing Director, HMP, said, "Having been associated with Indian, Regional and International films for several years now, the ability to spot good content for a movie is ingrained. Karmic Ishq is a touching story of love, passion and Karma. It delves on the social evil of child abuse and its impact on the psyche of its survivors." "Sometimes you read a book and know that it needs a larger canvass to show its true value, Karmic Ishq is one such book that needs to be made into a movie for the global and Indian audience that appreciates a good realistic story with a message of hope. Our vision is to make an English movie for the global audience. We are in talks to partner with a Hollywood production company to co-produce the movie with us," added Utpal Acharya. Karmic Ishq follows the life of its two main protagonists Kevin and Alisha through their growing up years. It portrays their love, lust and passion for each other. Both are survivors of child-abuse in their growing years and both have dealt with their trauma differently yet love binds them together. Speaking on the deal, Savio Rodrigues, Author, Karmic Ishq, stated, "I am thrilled that someone as experienced and knowledgeable in the global movie business as Utpal Acharya and his team have liked the book and decided to purchase the movie rights of the book to make it into aHollywood movie for the global audience. I am also equally excited that I would also be a part of the film-making process to co-write the screenplay for the movie. Karmic Ishq is a story for a global audience. I am also excited that as a Goan author, my work is creating a platform for other Goan authors on an International level." (ANI-NewsVoir)
