When beautiful, glamorous Shilpa Shetty entered the "Celebrity Big Brother" house, little did she know that her presence there would spark an unprecedented media frenzy.
As the show unfolded, divisions grew between certain contestants and the hostilities that followed led the public to accuse programme bosses of allowing racist bullying against Shilpa to occur unchecked.
A debate that crossed international borders raged on outside the house while, inside, Shilpa handled the events with her characteristic poise and maturity.
Shilpa is so famous in her home country that she is mobbed wherever she goes.
Having made her name first as a model and then as an actress, she entered the "Celebrity Big Brother" house to 'clear out misconceptions about Indian people.
What has taken place has led to her becoming one of the most popular contestants ever- there is not a person in the land who does not know who Shilpa is!
This affectionate and revealing book uncovers Shilpa's early life and traces her path to success.
It is a must-read for any fan and, of course, for the millions of people who have been following the "Big Brother" furore.
