About The Book
One man. His three lives. One city.
Amit is dead. Amit is alive. Amit is the superstar. Amit is a failed actor. Are there many men or just one man living different lives at different times? After 40 years, Amit wants to hark back to his youth and become a Bollywood hero. But Bombay is now Mumbai and he is no longer 20.
Does Amit have it in him to be the hero of his own story? Rocky, his flatmate, a struggling writer by day and bouncer by night, steps in as a messiah of sorts, along with Disha, the daughter of a renowned movie producer, who is madly in love with Rocky and believes all is fair in love, and Sasha, Amitâ€™s best friend, a hippie stuck in the â€™70s.
Chandni, the Bollywood siren of the â€™70s, is still the reigning queen of Amitâ€™s heart. With Amit back in the same city, will there be a reunion of two lost souls from another time? Will Amit achieve his Bollywood dream? Will Rocky pen a blockbuster? Will Disha win her love?
The Stranger In Me, by Neeta Shah, bestselling author of Bollywood Striptease, and Aditi Mediratta, associate writer of films Once Upon A Time In Mumbai and The Dirty Picture, is an extraordinary tale of ordinary dreams, unfulfilled wishes, unrequited love and, above all, Bollywood.
