The enchanting new Baby Ganesh agency novel sees Inspector Chopra and his elephant sidekick investigating the dark side of Bollywood

Mumbai thrives on extravagant spectacles and larger-than-life characters but even in the city of dreams, there is no guarantee of a happy ending.

Rising star and incorrigible playboy Vikram Verma has disappeared, leaving his latest film in jeopardy.

Hired by Verma's formidable mother to find him, Inspector Chopra and his sidekick, baby elephant Ganesha, embark on a journey deep into the world's most flamboyant movie industry.

As they uncover feuding stars, failed investments and death threats, it seems that many people have a motive for wanting Verma out of the picture.  

And yet, as Chopra has long suspected, in Bollywood the truth is often stranger than fiction.

Author Vaseem Khan was born in London but subsequently worked in Mumbai for ten years, falling in love with the city, the country and the people.

He is married and lives in London with his wife, whilst working at University College London in their Department of Security and Crime Science where he is astonished on a daily basis by the way modern science is being employed to tackle crime.

Superstar Aamir Khan, who does his bit to bring social change in the country via his show "Satyamev Jayate", is disturbed over the sexual assault on a young woman in Delhi.

He stressed upon the need for fast track courts to dispense quick justice in these cases.

"What has happened in Delhi is really unfortunate. Each time I read something like this, my heart bleeds. It is really sad," Aamir, who is known to raise society's issues in "Satyamev Jayate", said here in an interview.

"If we want the rate of such incidents to come down, then one of the important things we need to do is (facilitate) a high rate of conviction. In the cases of crime against women or children, the first thing we have to do is to have fast track courts," he added.

A 25-year-old woman was reportedly raped by an Uber cab driver Dec 5 night after she took the cab around 9.30 p.m. from the capital's Vasant Vihar area.

Aamir said there's a dire need to sensitise the public towards law and order to curb the rape incidents and added: "We have to give top priority to the security of women and children."

The 12 year-old hit-and-run case of Salman Khan was slated to have a hearing on 5th November but it has now been deferred to November 24th.

The last development in the case was when JW Mariott’s parking assistant had recognized actor Salman Khan sitting on the driver’s seat of the land cruiser that had rammed into a suburban street killing one and injuring four others.

The case has been through many twists to date.

In the midst of all trials, in August the Mumbai Police had told the court that the case diary consisting of all the case documents had gone missing in addition to 55 of the 63 case related documents.

Although post retrieval, the court has now asked the prosecution to submit a new plan of action.

The hearing has now been postponed towards the end of November and only time will tell what will be the fresh twists in this trial.
