Aravind Adiga's debut novel, Man Booker Prize-winning The White Tiger, is one of a number of upcoming literary adaptations from British filmmakers. A long list of projects recently awarded funding was released by the UK Film Council this week.

Adiga, whose work has been featured on the Roving Editor, will see The White Tiger brought to the screen by fellow novelist Hanif Kureishi. Kureishi recently commented, not entirely seriously, one suspects: 'I needed the money for my children – to ensure that they have a better life. The lives of my children are much more insecure compared to mine. I need to make films like Slumdog Millionaire.’ Elsewhere he said 'The White Tiger is a rags-to-riches murder story. It is Aravind's extraordinary characters that make this one stand out above all others.'
