Smriti Zubin Irani, the Union Minister, turned author and soon she is launching her first novel, Lal Salaam, through Westland Publishing. The novel ‘Lal Salaam’ is expected to be launch on 29 Nov 2021.

Lal Salaam is an action-packed novel that “humanizes the everyday difficulties and moral concerns that are inherent to modern life,” as per the publisher Westland Publications.


The novel is a touching tribute to the great men and women who have offered a lifetime duty to the nation, notably in addressing the issues in the red corridor, and was sparked by the terrible deaths of 76 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troops in Dantewada, Chhattisgarh, in April 2010.

‘Lal Salaam’ narrates the tale of Vikram Pratap Singh, a young officer, and the obstacles he encounters in a system filled with shady deals and corruption.

Ekta Kapoor recently shared a lovely note for Smriti Irani’s recent novel, Lal Salaam, on her official Instagram account. Many of fans and followers expressed their happiness in the comments section of Ekta Kapoor’s Instagram post by using hearts and heart-eyed emoticons.

“The tale had been cooking in the back of my head for several years when I finally couldn’t resist the desire to put this down on paper, I’m expecting that readers will embrace the pacing and depth I’ve attempted to add to the tale, which is staged in a lesser-known section of India,” says the author Smriti Irani.

Mukthar Abbas Naqvi, Irani’s Cabinet colleague, has written three crime thrillers in Hindi: Balwa, Cyber Supari, and Raj Leela, and Meenakshi Lekhi, Minister of State for External Affairs, has written a political crime thriller called ‘The New Delhi Conspiracy.’
