Tell us a little about your latest book?
Payback is staged in a small fictional town Kesua, located on the outskirts of Delhi.
The story is about Aditya Thakur, a humble, ambitious man who very well knew how to speak his mind and about the love of his life, Alisha who was able to understand his deepest feelings.
The story deals with the fact that love does not necessarily have a fairy tale ending. It is a lot more than dates, romance and the promise of growing old together. It’s about two people who are each other’s caretakers, secret keepers, partner in crime and best friends. Alisha found that kind of love in Aditya.They were leading a happy life until Achraj entered their life. Achraj, the spoiled son of Kesua’s Mayor, who could go to any lengths to satisfy his ego.
This is not any other love story, it shows the true meaning of life that includes sacrifices, hardships, pain, courage, guilt and not just happily ever after.
It’s a tale of love, malevolence, revenge, anticipation, and Acceptance.
