In a strong underline to its unrelenting focus on high-quality content, Abundantia Entertainment, producer of films like Airlift, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Shakuntala Devi and original series like Breathe and Breathe: Into The Shadows, today announced that it has acquired the rights to prolific and best-selling Indian author Ashwin Sanghi’s iconic book, ‘Keepers of the Kalachakra’.
The author is known for his novels that are a unique amalgamation of history, myth, science, philosophy and thrills. ‘Keepers of the Kalachakra’ is a fearsome tale of men who guard the ‘Kalachakra’ or The Wheel of Time. This book overlaps quantum theory with spirituality, Ashwin Sanghi has masterfully created a world with people at war with one another, a boomeranging conflict of faiths that results in acts of such slow and planned human cruelty that they defy human imagination. Trapped and wholly unaware of his actual foe, scientist Vijay Sundaram races against time to save humanity from impending doom. Zigzagging from the Ramayana to the birth of Buddhism; from the origin of Wahhabism to the Einsteinian gravitational wave-detectors of LIGO; from tantric practitioners to the Oval Office; and from the rites of Minerva, shrouded in frankincense, to the smoke-darkened ruins of Nalanda, ‘Keepers Of The Kalachakra’ is a journey that leaves its readers at the edge of their seats and hooked on right till the end with its compelling read.
Sanghi’s other best-selling novels include The Rozabal Line, Chanakya’s Chant, The Krishna Key, The Sialkot Saga and The Vault of Vishnu. He has also written two New York Times bestsellers in collaboration with James Patterson. A man who is now a regular household name with his books, owned and admired by people all around the world, Ashwin Sanghi’s book, ‘Keepers Of The Kalachakra’, holds a special place for many of his ardent fans.
Vikram Malhotra-headed Abundantia Entertainment has acquired the rights for the book to be adapted into a major, multi-season series. The author will work closely with the writing team to bring the book to life as a series.
Vikram Malhotra, Founder & CEO, Abundantia Entertainment says, “I am thrilled to have this opportunity presented to us to adapt such a spectacular work of fiction into a series at Abundantia Entertainment. Keepers Of The Kalachakra has been a fascinating read and is one of my personal favourites. We are deep admirers of Ashwin’s writing and the worlds that he creates with his unique stories. We are constantly on the look-out for disruptive and evocative stories and storytellers and there couldn’t be a better example of our content philosophy than this collaboration with Ashwin.”
Author Ashwin Sanghi says, “I am very excited to collaborate with Abundantia Entertainment and Vikram, in particular, to take my novel to the next level with a series adaptation. I have truly enjoyed all the exciting work that Abundantia Entertainment has been up to in its young journey and have been entertained by the amazing films and shows it has produced. Keepers Of The Kalachakra is a cutting-edge thriller that explores the overlap between quantum theory and spirituality and I‘m truly excited that this story will come alive on millions of screens soon through Abundantia.”
