Due to enormous demand, the publishers of Sachin Tendulkar’s record-breaking autobiography, Playing It My Way, have decided to translate the book in Indian regional languages. Hachette India will be co-publishing the cricket legend’s autobiography after being flooded with interest from several publishers.
Poulomi Chatterjee, publisher, Hachette India, said, “We have had an overwhelming response to the launch of this bestseller, and are in talks with several Indian language publishers. We look forward to co-publishing this book in Marathi, Hindi, Gujarati, Malayalam, Assamese, Telugu and Bengali. We will be finalising our publishing partnerships over the next few weeks for a summer 2015 release of these Indian language editions.”
The book, which was released on ovember 6, has broken all records for an adult hardback on order subscriptions across both fiction and non-fiction categories.
“The book has topped 200,000 copies in orders, already pulling ahead of both pre-order and lifetime sales of the top hardbacks — Dan Brown’s Inferno, Walter Issacson’s Steve Jobs and J K Rowling’s Casual Vacancy,” said the publishers in a statement. PTI
