A Hundred Lives For You by Abhisar Sharma

I wish we had the courage to have a second child.
Abhimanyu Sharma, 13, is on the threshold of a new beginning when his father’s remark scars him and his relationships forever.
Why did you not say it that day?
He is in love but does not fathom the depth of his love till it is too late.
And mark my words, you are the best!
He adores his Daddu, the old man whose faith in him keeps him going.
You saved me, and in time, I shall rescue you back.
And then, there is Simran, the little girl who gives him hope and love.
For whom he can give a hundred lives.


Join Abhimanyu as he proves every perception against him wrong – even his own – as he lives
through tumultuous relationships, a broken friendship, lost love and merciless carnage in the
very heart of Delhi. A Hundred Lives For You is a melting pot of emotions that moves with
the anger and pace of a thriller.

Let me introduce to you Abhisar Sharma, bestselling author and prominent television journalist. Abhisar’s latest book A Hundred Lives for You is already up for grabs on all leading online stores and will be available across major bookstores from November 2014 onward.

The book is a melting pot of emotions that moves with the anger and pace of a thriller. This is a growing of age story of a young boy who lives through tumultuous relationships in the backdrop of the merciless riots of 1984 in the very heart of Delhi to finally achieving peace and getting due justice as a successful journalist

Amidst a whirlwind tour to promote the latest blockbuster movie “Happy New Year”, team HNY took out time to pre-release Abhisar's novel A Hundred Lives for You in Noida. Abhisar presented copies of his novel to Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani and Farah Khan.

Visibly excited, Shahrukh Khan said, “This is a novel set in a time when I was growing up in Delhi, i.e. the ’70s and ’80s. It has certainly got me curious. It was also the time when Delhi witnessed its worst carnage. The blurb looks promising. The time that the novel is set in takes me back to a time when I was a child”. Shahrukh has promised to get back to the author with his views on the novel via twitter. 

Farah Khan, the director of Happy New Year said, “I am going get my hands on the book as soon as I finish promoting the movie”. Farah also responded with a somewhat positive, “You never really know” to Abhisar’s quip, “You might find a plot for your next movie (in this book)”.

Boman Irani who has already read Abhisar's first novel Eye of the Predator, said that he is looking forward to (reading) this one too. 

Abhisar Sharma is a veteran in the News TV industry with nearly 19 years of
experience working in organisations like the BBC World Service London,
NDTV, AAJTAK, and now ABP News. When he is not tackling politicians on
prime time, he is working on field from the most hostile places in the world.
This is his third novel, following two thrillers. He can be reached at or you can follow him on twitter @abhisar_sharma.
