New Delhi, Jan 24 (IANS) He has been taking radio listeners on a storytelling ride through two seasons of "Yaadon Ka Idiot Box", and now, journalist, scriptwriter and lyricist Neelesh Misra is set to launch a series of books that are a compilation of the tales he narrates on the show.

The book, "Neelesh Misra Ka Yaad Sheher", will be launched at the Jaipur Literature Festival Thursday.

"Yaadon Ka Idiot Box", the primetime show on 92.7 Big FM, features Misra narrating stories from the imaginary city of Yaad Sheher.

The book series is being published by the joint venture of Westland and Yatra Books. The Hindi version will be followed by a series of "Yaad Sheher" books in English. Each volume will have 20 to 25 stories, and Westland-Yatra has acquired the rights for six volumes of the book.

Misra is "delighted" that the stories "are being brought to life after being aired on radio".

"I hope this marks the start of a new level of integration between radio, print and other verticals, which will help provide engaging content to audiences through multiple mediums," Misra, author of the book "173 Hours in Captivity: The Hijacking of IC-814", said in a statement.

Misra, who has penned songs like "Jaadu hai nasha hai" from "Jism" , "I love you" from "Bodyguard", "Banjaara" from "Ek Tha Tiger" and "Kyon" from "Barfi!", will host a live storytelling and song performance at the fest.

He also co-wrote the screenplay of "Ek Tha Tiger" with Kabir Khan.

"Yaadon Ka Idiot Box" is produced by Misra's company Content Project Pvt. Ltd. for Reliance Broadcast Network, the parent company of 92.7 BIG FM.

Post the book launch, Misra plans to take the stories to a digital platform.
