"Shah Rukh Khan is the superstar in the exploding $1.5 billion Bollywood industry. He is also the face of a glittering new India. Shah Rukh is an international phenomenon - he generates. Beatlemania-like hysteria around the world, at appearances and performances across the U.S., throughout Europe, and beyond. Now, for the first time, his legendary success story is brought to life in King of Bollywood." "This book reveals how Shah Rukh Khan, a middle-class Muslim boy from Delhi, broke into the insular, nepotistic world of Bombay show business and became a sensation. His larger-than-life tale takes us through colourful and idiosyncratic Bollywood, where fantastic dreams and outrageous obsessions share the spotlight with extortion, murder, and corruption." "King of Bollywood is the first comprehensive narrative account of Bollywood published in the U.S. and the story of Shah Rukh Khan's rise to the top serves as a scintillating introduction to India's billion-dollar movie industry. Internationally renowned film critic. Anupama Chopra combines her knowledge of Bollywood with firsthand interviews and exclusive photographs for an insider's look at Shah Rukh Khan and the world of Bollywood."--BOOK JACKET.

I'm into Hindi films and I'm very glad that she wrote this book. It really did help me understand Shahrukh Khan and the industry, and the interplay between both of their development. And I've watched so so many Shahrukh Khan interview and documentaries so the details she provides in this book give the extra missing pieces to the stories he relates to interviewers and documentary film makers. And it's fairly easy to read.
