Actor Kubbra Sait will come out with her memoir next year, talking about the challenges she’s had to face and how she has overcome them. From battling crippling social anxiety as a child to being bullied and teased about her appearance as an adult, Kubbra burst onto the screen with a tough-as-nails performance in Sacred Games and she hasn’t looked back since, publishers HarperCollins India said.
In her memoir, she shares stories from her life to show that the road to success is never easy and also offers inspirational advice to others. Kubbra says this project is the “best thing to happen to me during the lockdown”.
“From an insecure childhood to reclaiming her confidence and going on to achieve her professional dreams, Kubbra has an amazing transformational story. Her writing, a combination of sassiness and vulnerability, will strike a chord with anyone navigating life’s challenges,” says Sonal Nerurkar, senior commissioning editor at HarperCollins India.
According to Jayapriya Vasudevan, partner, Jacaranda Literary Agency, “This ‘accidental writer’ writes faster than I can think! So much to look forward to with this book and this writer.”
Kubbra’s portrayal of the transgender Kuckoo on the Netflix marquee show Sacred Games fetched her ITA Award for Best Actress (negative role). She has also acted in films like Sultan, Ready and Gully Boy.
