Sriram Raghvan's next will be based on novelist and diplomat Vikas Swarup’s third book 'The Accidental Apprentice'


Sriram Raghavan has earlier given us films like 'Ek Hasina Thi', 'Johnny Gaddar' and 'Agent Vinod'. Sanjay Raotray has worked as an executive producer on films like Johnny Gaddar, Khosla Ka Ghosla and Makdee. Vikas’s first book 'Q and A' which won him South Africa’s Boeke Prize in 2006 was adapted into a film which won eight Academy Awards titled 'Slumdog Millionaire' by Danny Boyle.

The rights of his second book 'Six Suspects' has been bought by Starfield Productions. Sriram confirmed the news, saying, "The Accidental Apprentice is a fast-paced suspense story set in contemporary India. The premise is real yet fantastic. The protagonist is someone we can all relate to. It begins like a fairytale but it has a dark side as well.

I am a huge fan of Vikas's first novel 'Q and A' but couldn't get the rights of that." Sanjay Routray’ says, "Sriram has started working on the script. It took us around six months to convince Vikas about the project." Apparently Vikas Swarup wanted Sriram only to direct the film. Hope this ambitious project doesn't turn out to be another 'Agent Vinod'.
