Endemol Shine India picks up the screen rights for Salil Desai’s The Sane Psychopath.

Abhishek Rege, CEO, Endemol Shine India, said “Inspired by a real incident, The Sane Psychopath is an astounding psychological tale of a frightening murderous phenomenon of our times. Endemol Shine India is focused on developing quality content, that is gripping and globally relevant to the times we live in. What attracted us to the book is the insight the plot gives into the legal system, the state of mental health and the impact the news and headlines have on the general public. Delving into the mind of a psychopathic killer AND an idealistic lawyer, Salil Desai has penned a story that matters and has the power to change the narrative.”

Author Salil Desai is elated. “The Sane Psychopath is my darkest novel yet and was the hardest to write. I always thought it was 'made-for-screen' and when Endemol Shine India decided to adapt it, I almost went insane with excitement,” Salil said. Earlier this year, Salil Desai’s much acclaimed Inspector Saralkar Mystery series too was picked up for adaptation into a web series by another big production house.

"When I first heard the plot for The Sane Psychopath based on this real event, it truly intrigued me. Salil has written a masterpiece! I am so delighted Endemol Shine India picked it up for adaptation and we are all so thrilled for Salil," said Shikha Sabharwal, Publishing Director, Fingerprint! Publishing.
