Bollywood actors and filmmakers are known to be personalities of many talents. Many of them added a new feather to their hats when they turned writers and left the audience in awe of their versatility. While some of them inspired their fans to follow a healthy regime, others motivated the masses to get on a journey of self-discovery, with their personal accounts and anecdotes. Books are said to be a source of inspiration and bliss. To add to it, when these books are penned by our favourite actors and filmmakers the joy of reading them and discovering a whole new world, becomes unparalleled.
Here are five film personalities who have penned some really inspiring books:
Shilpa Shetty Kundra
A fitness and yoga enthusiast, Shilpa turned author with the book, The Great Indian Diet, that released in 2014. The book talks about healthy eating and teaches the average Indian household that one need not opt for ingredients from the West to maintain a perfect diet. The book became a guide to many and helped them tailor a healthy lifestyle.
Twinkle marked her debut as a book writer in 2015 with Mrs Funnybones: She’s Just Like Me And A Lot Like You. It went on to make her the highest-selling female author of 2015. Based on her popular column, it captures the life and times of a modern-day Indian woman. The book resonated with several readers and she successfully tickled their funny bones with her self-deprecating humour and hilarious analogies.
With Perils Of Being Moderately Famous, Soha emerged as one of the most original voices in the non-fiction literary world. High on wit and self-deprecating humour, the book is a collection of personal essays that encapsulates Soha’s growing up years in one of the most illustrious families of the country, being surrounded by family members who are popular stars and falling in love in a rather unlikely way. The book struck a chord with readers who hailed her for her impeccable wit and for penning a tender, poignant and breezy read.
Karisma’s debut book, My Yummy Mummy Guide: From Getting Pregnant To Losing All The Weight And Beyond, is a treat to all young mothers out there and provides them advice on finding the perfect maternity outfits, decorating children’s rooms, juggling work life and motherhood, and planning stylish children parties. It has inspired many mothers-to-be and new mothers and prepared them to take on a journey, that is both interesting and challenging.
Tahira Kashyap Khurrana
Director-scriptwriter Tahira’s latest book, ‘The 12 Commandments Of Being A Woman’, hit the shelves last month. With a witty and humorous undertone to it, the book chronicles her childhood anecdotes, her journey and experiences and her battle against cancer, among other things. An anthem for women and intrigue for men, it became a runaway success and Tahira joined the league of contemporary female writers with a strong voice.
