After winning the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for Slumdog Millionaire, screenwriter Simon Beaufoy came to the press interview room and explained that when adapting a work for film, "you have to be very bold . . . You have to be willfully disrespectful of the material and put it away, put the book away . . . You have to take the core of it and change everything around it." He said movies should portray the kind of love that isn't so complicated and that "that totally naive heart on your sleeve" type of love is wonderful and he wanted to bring it back to Western cinema: "It's me, you, love — let's go . . . All Bollywood cinema is about that, it's about heart."
