After the success of the Unlikely Hero- A biography of Om Puri, writer Nandita Puri launched her latest book, Two Worlds during the ongoing Jaipur Literary Festival on Saturday evening.

Touted as one of the most successful writers whose work has been on the best-sellers list for both her novels and short stories, this latest work of literature is being heralded as a masterpiece by Puri.

Visibly moved by the occasion, Puri said "It's an overwhelming feeling to be here today. This book is very special to me, it has evolved over a couple of years. The story covers two centuries and has two very strong women characters. It revolves around Bollywood, media, and the underworld."

The book was launched by William Dalrymple who was as usual in a jocular mood.

It was no surprise to see Om Puri as the celebrity guest who did the honour of reading excerpts from the book in his iconic voice amidst applause and adulation.
