My verdict :
The story revolves around the life of Budding Actors, who keep in so much of passion, life, burning Desire and lots of dreams to city of dreams, Mumbai.
Usually we hear that millions of people go to Mumbai with packed Dreams to earn all the name and fame, achieve everything in life.
But there are very few who actually do it, there is so much to suffer and struggle and finally get a small step to get in. And this books talks about it.

I personally feel the cover of the book is attractive and beautiful, little bit of attention was need on editing, the author starts the book on usual things, but as you flip pages there are unpredictable things.
I like the part of women, who is Stubborn, beautiful, bold and who can knock out at right moment of time, no depression, no act, nothing can stop her if she has made up her mind in something very keenly.
Beautiful read 🙂
