The Perils of being Moderately Famous authored by Soha Ali Khan is a brilliant collection of personal essays where the actor recounts with self depreciating humour what it was like growing up in one of the most royal families in the country. This debut book of her takes us through some of the most innumerable moments of Soha’s life from growing up as a modern day princess and her days at Oxford University to the celebrity life and culture.
The books is just not about Saif, Kareena, Kunal, Sharmila Tagore or Mansoor Ali Khan. So if you pick this book to know about their personal life, you will be very much disappointed. Only this book includes the references form their life that impacted Soha’s life.
So after reading this, I’m awe of her writing skills. I absolutely am mot aware if she can flirt with camera or not, but she can possibly trifle with the words in the best possible way.
Moderately famous- I don’t think she is moderately famous. But being someone’s daughter, belonging from a royal empire, she still chooses her existence based on her own identity. Though she chooses to initiate the journey by penning an introduction about her family’s illustrious history.
She writes gloriously about her forefather’s legacy as the Nawabs of Pataudi. And our very own Rabindranath Tagore also graces the mother’s side. I’m surprised, her writing is simply flawless, her conversational style soon attracts her readers.
Overall The Perils of being Moderately Famous is a worth read.
