Filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, who is known for her film Nil Battey Sannata, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Panga, is making her debut as an author. The writer- director was working on her fictional novel for three years. Titled Mapping Love, the novel is a love story of Oorja and Anag. It is slated to launch on 1 August.

Speaking to The Quint Ashwiny says, "There is a difference between loneliness and solitude. And writing a book is a very solitary process. It's something that you enjoy. It's only you and your book, and no one around really knows what you are doing."


She also shares what Sudha Murty's advice to her was, when Ashwiny wanted to know how she manages writing in between other things.
