Some interesting facts of 7 Khoon Maaf:

  • The 2011 Bollywood movie is based on Ruskin Bond's five-page short story Susanna’s Seven Husbands. Reportedly, when Bharadwaj chanced upon the short story, he loved it so much that he approached Ruskin Bond to develop it into a novella. Later the director along with Matthew Robbins developed the novella into a screenplay. 
  • 7 Khoon Maaf was the Bollywood debut of famous writer Matthew Robbins, who had previously written the screenplay of movies like MacArthur, Blood Brothers, among others. Interestingly, Robbins and Bharadwaj had first met during Mira Nair's screenwriter workshop in 2004. According to reports, the novella of 7 Khoon Maaf was complex and hard to adapt into a screenplay, the reason why Bharadwaj opted to write the film himself. While writing, he realised that he wanted a co-writer, and Bharadwaj wanted a co-writer who is more experienced and skilled. His search reportedly ended in Matthews, who later collaborated with Bharadwaj for Rangoon (2017).
