So bizarre it’s gotta be true
Actor, Singer, Painter, Writer. A successful debut Bollywood film with mega star Shah Rukh Khan, marriage with an internationally renowned film maker Shekhar Kapur, a pop album with music by Andrew Lloyd Weber….Walking the red carpet at the Oscars…What more could any young girl with stars in her eyes aspire to?
In her candid, wacky, madcap biography, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi takes us on a hormone driven period of her life 5 years post marriage and divorce, fame and everything that a girl from a ‘decent’ Indian family would want. This is no longer the world of propriety that any culture would prescribe for a woman.
A single mother, suffering from Aphallatosis (a rare mental disorder arising from lack of sex!!!),a typical result of her strict middle class moral upbringing, Suchitra hurtles, chugs and somersaults on a rollercoaster journey in a desperate bid to find security and true love. In the process rediscovering her relationship with her mother, her past and most importantly herself. Emerging with a new voice long suppressed and lost under the perplexing burdens of conforming to being ‘I’m a good girl -I am’
Irrepressibly irreverent ‘Drama Queen” is an irresistibly honest biography that will make you laugh, cry and look at the modern Indian woman in a whole new light
