Post 'Agent Vinod', filmmaker Sriram Raghvan has been busy going through various stories for his next project. Latest heard that the director has been inspired by novelist and diplomat Vikas Swarup's third book 'The Accidental Apprentice' and is going to make his forthcoming film based on this one.

For the uninitiated - 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 fairy tale 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, who has worked as an executive producer on films like 'Johnny Gaddar', 'Khosla Ka Ghosla' and 'Makdee',  has bought the rights of 'The Accidental Apprentice' and will be producing the film under his banner Matchbox Films.

Stated Routray, "Sriram has started working on the script. It took us around six months to convince Vikas about the project."

Apparently Vikas Swarup wanted the 'Johnny Gaddar' famed helmer only to direct the film.
