Nirav Modi Scam Has An Uncanny Resemblance To A Book Written A Year Ago, Twitter Freaks Out

Prominent business tycoons like Vijay Mallya have been part of major scams that shook the nation and cost the country a lot of money. Another name has been clubbed in with such tycoons and it’s the jeweller Nirav Modi.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you must be pretty aware of the Nirav Modi case who swindledย $1.77 billion, i.e.ย โ‚น11,400 crore from Punjab National Bank. The jeweller is currently on the verge of being sued by Priyanka Chopra and is allegedly grounded in the US, as his passport has been blocked.

But, would you believe me if I told you this scam has an uncanny resemblance to a book? Fiction is not very far from the truth and author Ravi Subramaniam has proved it with his book ‘In The Name Of God’.

The book has a main protagonist who is named Nirav Choksi. Now, this could be a co-incidence but Nirav Modi was also aided in his scam by his uncle Mehul Choksi. What’s more is that the book is also about a bank heist and the protagonist is a jeweller.

Ummm… Spooky!

Needless to say, netizens are freaking out over the resemblance and this could be the Indian ‘Simpson’ phenomenon.

1. You know it!

2. Whoa!

3. IKR!

4. That is a great point.

5. Take notes, CBI.

6. Mind=Blown.

7. What is the truth?

8. Did he?

9. Dayummm!

10. The suspense is killing me!

11. An apocalypse prediction?

When somebody commented that it can’t be a coincidence, the author tweeted this in response,

Although he’s claiming that it ‘probably’ is a coincidence, he’s quite vocal about the involvement of senior officials.

Regardless of whether he knew about it or not, this is some pretty epic shiz going down. BRB, gonna read the book now!
