Sapna Sinha is a sales assistant in a TV showroom in New Delhi. As the sole breadwinner in the family, she works hard to support her widowed mother and younger sister Neha. Then billionaire Vinay Mohan Acharya walks into her life and offers to make her the CEO of his global empire. All she has to do is pass seven tests – rites of passage, designed to gauge her mettle as a leader.

It seems too good to be true, and Sapna is sceptical. But, in desperate need of money, she signs the contract that will subject her to the series of ‘life tests’. She has no idea what they will be, or when they will come, but if she gets through them, her life will change forever.

And change it does – though not in a way she could ever have predicted. As the consequences of her Faustian pact become clear, it seems there is no escape. Only by revisiting her past can she make sense of her present: but nothing can prepare her for what she finds there….

Vikas Swarup’s best selling novel The Accidental Apprentice, dramatised by award-winning authors Ayeesha Menon and John Dryden. This gripping, suspenseful drama with a twist in the tale stars Rasika Dugal as Sapna and Vijay Chrishna as Acharya.
