9780143032670: Starry Nights

Aasha Rani, the unrivalled number one of Bombay cinema, seems intent on ruining her career - and her life - blinded by a scorching passion that threatens to destroy everything she has attained. Aasha Rani's story is that of a vulnerable, small-town girl whose scheming mother pushes her via a never-ending orgy of blue films and indiscriminate sex into the crass world of Bombay cinema, teeming with vicious, preening stars and near-stars and insecure, high-society celebrities: Akshay Arora, the reigning stud of 70 mm and the object of Aasha Rani's desire; Sheth Amirchand, the Don of Bombay's underworld, under whose hallowed sheets her career is sealed; Kishenbhai, the small-time distributor, who gives her her first break, and his heart; Sudha, her younger sister, whose envy and hate of her sister's success make her Aasha Rani's worst enemy.

About the Author:

Shobhaa De is one of India's top bestselling authors. All her thirteen books have topped the charts, and each of her titles continues to sell well even today. Her ten books with Penguin India -- the novels Socialite Evenings, Starry Nights, Sultry Days, Sisters, Strange Obsession, Snapshots and Second Thoughts, two books of non-fiction (Surviving Men and Speedpost: Letters to My Children) and an autobiography (Selective Memory: Stories from My Life) have all been phenomenal bestsellers. De gave new definition to the mass market bestseller with her writing in the 1990s, and all her books have remained perennial favourites with readers over the years.
