Soon, a voiceover “reads out a sequence that appears to be an excerpt from the book. It is explicitly sexual and doesn’t exist in the novel.”

He implored that as he has been writing pulp fiction for nearly 60 years with success he has never relied on sex or violence as the “hooks” for his books. “People will see this and think that this is my life’s work. This just seems to be mal-intentioned,” Pathak told the portal.

The author had asked for an explanation and an apology from the makers, failing which he would take legal action.

The post signed by Puneet Krishna said that the voiceover was completely unrelated to the book cover shown in the scene and the production house understands the implication. They concluded the note by saying that to rectify the situation, as discussed with the author, they will be blurring the “book-cover in the scene or remove the VO within a reasonable time of 3 weeks.”
