Selling more than 6 million copies since its release in 2003, ‘Shantaram’ is a bestseller drama novel by Gregory David Roberts. Apple has now set their eyes on it and want to adapt it as a series.

The storyline of the novel ‘Shantaram’

The novel is partly based on events that took place in the author’s life. ‘Shantaram’ centres on an Australian man who ran away from jail and ends up in the city of Bombay. Lin, the main protagonist, has to get used to his new conditions as he finds himself far away from the people he knows. On his journey, he discovers the slums and life in the poorest parts of India.

Apple is working on the drama series

Following a harsh rivalry between several media outlets, the American brand has won the rights to produce ‘Shantaram’. The best-selling novel is set to be the first international project for the company. Eric Warren Singer is on board to pen the screenplay and executive produce.

Other planned adaptations of the best-seller

Upon the launch of the novel ‘Shantaram’, Russell Crowe expressed an interest in turning the book into a movie. After winning the rights, Warner Bros. attached Johnny Depp to the project, but it was cancelled. Another attempt happened in 2013 with Joel Edgerton in the leading role and Garth Davis as a director.

More details about the novel adaptation

Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have also acquired the legal permits for the programme about ‘Shantaram’. The drama series has not been assigned a release date yet and is still in its early stages.
