"What if Ajmal Kasab’s mission were to entertain, and not kill, Indians?

In recent years, many Pakistani actors and actresses crossed the border to work in Bollywood. The presence of a Pakistani actor will ensure a Hindi movie’s smooth release in Pakistan. Many of them managed to become the heartthrobs of moviegoers in both countries while their lonely fellow national, who was the most hated man in India, spent his last years in a high security prison in Mumbai.

If the real Kasab came to terrorize Indians, the Kasab in the novel comes with a seemingly noble mission. But does everything work smoothly for him?

The fictitious Kasab doesn’t wield a rifle, but the influence he wields over the moviegoers terrorizes many.

The hero in the novel could have been known by any other name. But the name Kasab has been chosen to convey the ironies and contradictions in Indo-Pakistan relationship.

The experience of a Pakistani actor is narrated here in a true Bollywood style — with drama, romance, action and suspense — to make it an unputdownable book."
