Missing my time on a film set has really made me deep dive into every book on Bollywood that I could lay my hands on. In today’s round of #SonamReads, I’m listing out picks that have kept me busy, engaged and oh-so-happy, while being at home. Fantasies Of A Bollywood Love Thief: Inside the World of Indian Moviemaking by Stephen Alter gave me great insight into Stephen’s take on our industry – wherein he acts as both tour guide and translator. The Art of Bollywood by Rajesh Devraj, Edo Bouman, Paul Duncan is a beautiful essay on Bollywood’s culture of hand-painted visuals and the league of cinema through posters. Sholay: The Making Of A Classic by Anupama Chopra narrates to us the fascinating story of how a four-line idea grew to become the greatest blockbuster of Indian cinema. Parveen Babi: A Life by Karishma Upadhyay details the rise of Parveen Babi, her clutter-breaking style and her battle with mental health, amongst the glitzy world of Bollywood. Written By Salim-Javed: The Story Of Hindi Cinema’s Greatest Screenwriters by Diptakirti Chaudhuri is a dramatic, entertaining story of the dream team that pioneered the Bollywood blockbuster: Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar. Have you gotten a chance to read these gems yet? Sound off in the comments below. #SonamReads #HindiFilms #Bibliophile #BookLoversClub
