Interview With Gopalakrishna Prabhu – Whispers of Vikramgad: The tale of Aura of retribution Author.

Q.1 What inspires you to write?

I have always found books to be incredibly captivating. The more one reads, the more their creativity improves. As thoughts enter and exit the mind, inspiration strikes unexpectedly. Writing serves as a powerful tool to convey ideas effectively and extract numerous insights from them.

Q.2 Tell us more about the book. 

This book, in my opinion, is a fusion of various elements. It encompasses drama, a captivating tale centered around a fort. It incorporates elements of mythology, suspense, thrill, and well-timed comedic moments. Besides being entertaining, I believe this book imparts valuable life lessons to observant readers. As a dedicated professional, it took me considerable time to bring this book to fruition. The encouraging feedback received from readers throughout the writing process served as the motivation I needed to see it through to completion.

Q 3.  Given the complex publishing process in India, what was your experience?

The publishing industry in India is undeniably intricate. As a newcomer in this field, I aspire for a more streamlined process to motivate more individuals to pursue publishing their work. My encounter has been less than satisfactory. It seems to me that writing a book is a simpler task compared to the challenges of getting it published. Despite the presence of reputable publishing houses like Paper Towns that facilitate the process, there remains ample room for enhancement within the publishing realm.

Q 4. If your book was adapted into a movie, what would be your dream casting?

I am confident that Whispers of Vikramgad possesses all the necessary elements to become an incredibly successful film. If I were to choose the ideal cast, I would select Rajkumar Rao to portray the charismatic YouTuber Chandan, Varun Dhavan as the determined ACP Marathe, Amit Sadh as Jeevan, and Saiyami Kher as the captivating Suruchi. As a devoted admirer of the legendary Pankaj Kapoor and Anupam Kher and talented Deepak Dobriyal, I hold them in high regard. While I appreciate numerous superstars, this particular casting would fulfill my ultimate cinematic vision.

Q. 5. If you were to re-create the ending of one book, which book would that be and what would you change?

I would maintain the books in their current form. As a person who writes, I appreciate the hard work that goes into creating a literary piece. The original rendition is typically the most genuine version of the book. Just for the sake of addressing this prompt, I would opt to save Gus from his fate in the novel ‘TheFault in Our Stars’.

My writing process is straightforward. I begin by envisioning the plot and then proceed to write about it. I strictly avoid multitasking writing with any other tasks. To ensure uninterrupted focus, I reserve dedicated time for writing exclusively on the weekends.

I am interested in creating an authentic Comedy Drama that appeals to audiences of all ages.
