Mehta thought that Varma was the most fascinating artist of that era and his character, persona and paintings fascinated him from his days at Film and Television Institute of India. After reading Desai's novel, he formulated the story of his new film. Mehta moulded the script to project Ravi Varma as a radical painter, and This change, Mehta felt, would help the film achieve more traction with the intelligentsia, and ease the path to awards and honours.
