After winning the Booker prize and then the Booker of Bookers, it was only a matter of time before someone snapped up film rights to Salman Rushdie's highly appreciated novel, Midnight's Children.
The British novelist won the award in 1981 with Midnight's Children, a book which was also the recipient of the Booker of Bookers in 1993 and the Best of the Booker this year.
The novel won a second time in 1993 when it was chosen as the Booker of Bookers, an award marking 25 years of Booker Prizes.
It also scooped the Booker of Bookers - the only other time a celebratory award has been created for the prize - in 1993.
