Actress Kubbra Sait, who is best known for her roles in Sultan (2016), Sacred Games (2018) and Gully Boy (2019), is set to add ‘author’ to her list of achievements as her part memoir, part inspirational treatise, Open Book, is set to hit the stands on 27 June.

Published by HarperCollins, the book charts “the struggles, achievements, joys and failures, and the many reinventions of a shy and anxious Bangalore girl who dreamt of making it in the competitive world of cinema".

The description of the book on the website, reads, “At five, she took the stage by storm as Indira Gandhi. At eight, she was bullied. At ten, she hit rock bottom. At thirteen, she discovered a personality development programme that changed her life forever. From being an awkward teen in braces to becoming a sought-after master of ceremonies to successfully portraying the transgender Cuckoo on the hit Netflix series Sacred Games, Kubbra Sait has broken boundaries and made a name for herself.

"Her ordinary upbringing notwithstanding, Kubbra is an extraordinary woman who quickly learnt how to deal with the harsh ways of the world and shape her life successfully despite them. The bullying she encountered in school as a child helped her face nepotism in Bollywood [the Hindi film industry], an industry known to favour its own, often at the cost of talented ‘outsiders’.”

Sait shared the news about the book with her fans on Instagram:
