Show BusinessBook - 1992
This triumphant novel about the razzle-dazzle of the Hindi film industry confirms Shashi Tharoor's reputation as one of India's most important voices and a writer of world stature. His hero - or antihero - is Ashok Banjara, one of Bollywood's mega-movie stars, a man of great ambition and dubious morals. With irrepressible charm and a genius for stature, Tharoor portrays the film world with all its Hollywoodesque glitz and glamour, egos and double standards, as a metaphor for modern society.
