Show BusinessBook - 1992
Ashok Banjara is one of India's mega-movie stars, a man of great ambition and dubious morals. With irrepressible charm and a genius for satire, Tharoor portrays the Indian film world in all its Hollywoodesque glitz and glamor as a metaphor for Indian society. Onscreen fiction and offscreen reality intertwine to weave a tapestry of power and privilege, seduction and betrayal, and politics and intrigue, that is at once colorful, entertaining, and deadly serious. A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year.
