Siddharth Roy Kapur launched filmmaker-author Nidhie Sharma’s new book ‘Invictus: The Jungle that Made Me’ in a digital event on August 10. Siddharth is the producer, Managing Director- Roy Kapur Films, and the President of the Producers Guild of India.
‘Invictus: The Jungle That Made Me’ is a true first person account of surviving in the jungles of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh. Nidhie was one of the six army children who went missing in the jungles in her childhood. This is a teen vs wild story of survival, courage, resilience and leadership.
“Nidhie Sharma’s ‘Invictus’ is a compelling read and what makes it riveting is the courage and resilience it depicts, while bringing to life a world as stunningly visual as it is daunting. The book is inspiring, poignant and a work of arresting originality,” Siddharth said at the launch, praising the author and her book.
Talking about her new book, Nidhie said, “I learnt quickly that the jungle was alive and it found your fears faster than you found your strength. And if you did not square off with your fears, the jungle would square off with you. My teen vs wild survival memoir carries within itself a whole host of life lessons, transformations and epiphanies which I believe must be shared.Nidie is writer–director. Previously, she had authored the book ‘Dancing with Demons’. Her latest book ‘Invictus: The Jungle That Made Me’ is published by Pan Macmillan India.
