NEW DELHI: Actor-turned-author Soha Ali Khan recently discussed the biggest struggles that came with being an actor. At the launch of her book ‘The Perils of Being Moderately Famous’ here on Tuesday, the 39-year-old said, “The toughest chapter to write was probably the one called ‘Working Actor’. The other chapters sort of fell together in place, but really, my struggle has been with my profession as an actor, which is such an important part of my life.”
“The insecurities coming along with it, comparisons that are made which are very difficult to live up to and I feel there is a very big shoe to fill. I also feel that striking the right tone with readers about my failures, insecurities and the learning step that come across, but at the same time, not being too hard on myself, was most difficult thing for me,” she added.
When asked what prompted her to write a book, the actress said that she had written a couple of columns and essays previously, but writing 40,000-50,000 words was a huge task.
“I wanted to write non-fiction because I don’t have the imagination for creative fiction. I felt certain things about my life that I could draw from and that might be humorous,” she added. On the work front, the ‘Rang De Basanti’ star will be next seen in ‘Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3.’
