A smoke-and-mirrors story decked in acerbic humour and grief

About the Book

Meera has just landed her first big Bollywood film after years of struggling, loneliness and despair. For Dabloo, who is fighting to make ends meet, this year has brought both the lowest and highest points of his career. Aspiring TikTok star Jayesh, unlucky in love and films, might just discover his métier the hard way. Embroiled in #MeToo allegations, the puppet master of the casting couch, Micky Taneja, might be able to find his true love and work again.

As the paths of these strugglers collide, broken relationships give way to unexpected ones, projects are found and lost, and repressed pasts resurface in their shiny new lives. In the face of a real-life climax, each is forced to reckon if they’re the hero or villain of their own story.

A smoke-and-mirrors story decked in acerbic humour and grief, Take No. 2020 is a story within a story, where reality is nothing except what you believe in.
