Tell us a little about your latest book?
Romantic Guerrilla is about a bad-boy entrepreneur taking on a corrupt billionaire. Subash Bodhi runs the show in style at Guerrilla, an energy drink startup in Bangalore. He gets into a power struggle with a billionaire investor Prakash Bhasani, who is the heir of family-run Bhasani group. As the power battle escalates, he gets kicked out of his startup. He comes back for justice with a guerrilla army to humiliate Bhasani group family, using social and system hacks.
Romantic Guerrilla is a satirical novel, set in contemporary and urban India featuring a love triangle, ensemble cast and a psychological revenge drama. Its episodic narrative is comparable to Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club and Vikas Swarup’s Q&A (Slumdog Millionaire).
