Publisher's Summary

So you love the spotlight and drama of Bollywood and want to make it your life. But what is the right time to become a professional actor? What sort of hindrances are you likely to face as you make your way through the film and television industry? Where will this road take you? And, most importantly, how do you make it happen?

In Cracking the Code, Ayushmann Khurrana - actor, singer and television personality - tries to answer these questions and outlines a step-by-step guide to making it big in Tinseltown, drawing on his personal experiences as a rising star in Bollywood. Supported by anecdotes from his own life - his transition from a reality TV star to a distinctive voice on Big FM; from getting a break in soap operas to becoming the highest-paid host of reality shows on television; from dealing with failed auditions to finally landing the coveted lead role in the hit film Vicky Donor; and struggling to juggle his newfound success with his family life - Ayushmann identifies and shares the patterns he has noticed on the road to becoming a successful movie star.

Simple story telling

Simple but important story to hear. Love your craft, money will follow. The narrator was a bit fast for my understanding so I had to slow him down a little.
