In the past, Dubey has produced indie films like "Geelee" and "Naach Ganesh", and made a short film titled "Maratha Mandir Cinema" featuring actress Sarika and actor-lyricist Swanand Kirkire.

"I have already started scripting the film and thinking about the casting. As the story is mainly about three boys from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, I want to cast Sushant, Fawad for the two of them," Dubey told IANS.

"For the female lead, I think Alia can play the part. Let's see how the casting goes," he added.

Dubey launched the book on Friday night.

The story of "Love Curry" revolves around three guys from three different continents who live in the UK and how they go through a journey of their life, love and cultural identity.

Though the book is a light read, asked what made him bring the element of identity struggle of South Asians in a western country, Dubey said: "I lived in London for quite some time for my study and work. I have seen how people are narrating their story of identity struggle."

"Though the time has changed drastically and thanks to the internet, people know that India is not a country of snake charmers anymore, there are snob people with disinterest and misconception regarding our culture."

"But at the same time, I do not want to treat the issue with so much seriousness, rather wanted to focus on how these three guys, who are otherwise fighting against each other as Indian and Pakistani unite as one in a western country," Dubey added.
