J.K. Rowling says she was approached द्वारा Michael Jackson to turn her Harry Potter novels into a stage musical.
But the लेखक turned him down because she was convinced that the musical wouldn't be a success.
Even though she has agreed to many merchandising deals and even a theme park, she told Oprah Winfrey that there were many things she rejected. She said:
"Michael Jackson wanted to do a musical. I कहा no to a lot of things. For me, I प्यार the films, I प्यार the books, and there's elements that I प्यार around it… like the theme park. But I only wanted to do it because I knew it would be incredible."
