‘Dual Reality’, is the story of Jeetendra, a talented, but unlucky engineering student, and his girlfriend Anjali, an aspiring Bollywood actress. A family mishap makes Jeetendra flunk his IIT entrance test, so he joins a private engineering college. He develops special skills in ethical hacking. Though selected in a good company, recession delays his joining it. He joins a call centre instead, along with Anjali to pass time. That job tears his mind-and he needs psychiatric help. Meanwhile, Anjali struggles in Bollywood. Inadvertently drawn into an international drug smuggling racket, he needs to make an emergency visit to USA. Rival gangs of smugglers and police are on his trail. He uses his skills to triumph over them. This is a close to heart, ‘boy-and-girl-next-door’ story with no melodrama or satire. Yet, it has its adrenaline rush moments, as well as rib tickling romantic moments, compelling a reader to turn pages. It is – as if Chetan Bhagat and Michael Crichton sat together – to write a fast paced romantic thriller.
