Manuscript help, book reviews and author interviews
What you are sure to get from a book by Anuja Chauhan are peppy dialogues, a crackling chemistry between the lead pair and some wicked humour to add to the mix. I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Zoya Factor and Those Pricey Thakur Girls, and could not wait to read her latest book.
Of the 5 alphabetically named Thakur sisters from Those Pricey Thakur Girls, Binodini is no more. Her daughter Bonita (Bonu) stays with her grandfather in New Delhi’s posh Hailey Road. From her hissa of the house, she runs a “garment fabrication unit”, aka getting her tailors to copy the latest Bollywood designer outfits- this is oh so Delhi! Like all of Anuja Chauhan’s female protagonists, Bonu is brave, beautiful and has a totally badass, no nonsense attitude to life. Enter Samar, the gorgeous film director, who happens to be Bonu’s aunt Anjini’s stepson.Samar is working on a film called, tentatively, “Tharki Thakur” and is lying low after getting in trouble with many high and mighty Bollywood types.
