The manuscript was edited to exclude much of the sexual content and Anand substituted Niranjan as the central character.
Rao initially planned to end his novel with the end of Niranjan's term as chief minister. The central character of this book is Mr Anand, which seems to be the fictional name of none other than PVN himself.
