From The Book:

Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Vidya Balan, Karan Johar. These celebrities are adored and looked up by millions who aspire to emulate their success stories. But what is it that separates them, and other Bollywood stars, from the rest?? Which is that one defining trait that makes them stand out, and how can you benefit from knowing it ??

In this one-of-a-kind book, Priyanka Sinha Jha looks at eleven luminaries from Bollywood, and the attribute that is perhaps most responsible for their success. She details their stories, their struggles, their efforts to overcome setbacks, and what is it about them that made them not just reach the top of their game, but stay there.

My Review:

Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif.. Aren’t we familiar with these superstars?? Many of us even dream of becoming next King Khan or next Bhai Jaan of Bollywood. In the century we are living in, every one of us wants to be rich, to have fame and success. But only lucky ones get that opportunity. Well, all these cannot be achieved through sheer luck; we have to work hard too.

Not only us but even the Bollywood stars do struggle. Their path to success isn’t that easy as we think it is. And this book tells us why they are called as “Superstars”. It also tells us the character they possess in real life which makes them different from their counterparts. For example, The Author has pointed out the Discipline quality of Amitabh Bachchan  as the best which makes him a living legend. Similarly, Aamir Khan’s perfection, Salman Khan’s generosity makes them unique.

The book is written in a simple and easy language which makes it a good read. It is small and compact as its only of 185 pages which won’t make you feel bore and you can finish it in one go. I am slightly disappointed with the book because most of the things written in the book can be easily found through internet. I am sure, most of the Bollywood fans must be knowing these Traits of their stars which doesn’t make this book any unique.


My Rating: 3.5/5 (A Simple, Nice Read)

Though the book was received as part of Reviewers Programme on The Tales Pensieve. I was completely unbiased while writing this review.
