Author Pavan C.Lall said, “It is an extremely exciting opportunity, and I am thrilled to be a part of this book-to-screen adaptation journey. Capturing the sensibility of a book in a cinematic way is not a simple task. But I have full faith in Abundantia Entertainment. I believe that they will do complete justice to this endeavour and give Flawed the appropriate visual mounting. This book is my effort to bring the tale of a larger-than-life entrepreneur, his spectacular rise, and equally dramatic fall which brought an entire industry to its knees.”
