Recently Gulshan said, “I have been a part of many stories across regions and languages but this is a completely new experience for me. Having my story told in a book is exciting yet unnerving.” Adding his thought on the book, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, said, “The ability to deconstruct and reinvent one’s persona is the lifeblood of all successful durable entertainers all through history. The reason why Gulshan Grover has been able to survive in this novelty seeking business, where the audience is continuously asking for a new, fresh experience, is because he manages to do just that. Gulshan is a shape-shifter.”
Commenting on the book, Swati Chopra, Senior Commissioning Editor, Penguin Random House India, said, “Gulshan Grover’s ability to immerse himself into a role, often villainous, is legendary. Through his biography, we get a rare insight into the mind and world of the ‘bad man’ of Bollywood.
Written by Roshmila Bhattacharya, this biography focuses on his journey, films, failures and successes, his international projects, and a lot more.
