A delight tragic-comic tale of how a slacker goes on to become a film star, Bindaas Zero Bollywood Hero traces the filmy twists and turns in the life of Vishnu Shankar, a.k.a. Vishy. Tired of his father's incessant rebukes and taunts, Vishy leaves his home in Delhi for a call centre job in Pune. Here, he encounters a free-spirit flatmate Arpita; new age philosopher Jana; and his horrible boss-turned-loving wife Usha life, however, flings him from the structured environs of the call centre right into the chaotic lap of Bollywood. But will ambitious and street smart Vishy be able to negotiate the cut-throat world of casting couches, seductresses' extortionists, rigged film awards, lewd producers and what have you? A melting pot of raw ambition, manipulations, peer pressure, rivalry, revenge, fractured friendships and reconciliation, this book showcases both the funny and the sleazy of Bollywood. Tune in for a pacy, rollicking 70mm cinematic experience. About the Author N. Sampath Kumar lives in Chennai, and is the author of two previous novels, Love on Velocity Express and Campus Cola, of which the latter has been published by Rupa.
