Should Soha Ali Khan make a web series on her own life?

Soha Ali Khan, about 3 or 4 years ago in 2017, wrote a memoir titled ‘The Perils of Being Moderately Famous’. The book was a huge success because of the wit and humour with which it was written. It also gathered special attention for the details provided about one of the most illustrious and famous royal families in India, i.e. ‘The Pataudi Family’.

Soha Ali Khan, in the book, recounts her life experiences and lessons in blurry detail and keeps drawing parallels between the lives of hard-working and immensely disciplined royal family members who lived before her, and her own urban life which didn’t seem to have the ‘palace’ effect. Considering how little people know about Soha Ali Khan except for the fact that ‘she was the actress in Rang De Basanti’, her journey, which even I discovered only from the book, of being:

a princess - to an Oxford student who toured the world with her friends - to a graduate-turned-corporate worker in Mumbai (who also got attacked once) - to an actress - to an urban mother now

can be a very compelling storyline for a web series, along the lines of something like ‘Mentalhood’ but only more distinctive (because of the royal family background, non-fiction tag and real-life parallels) and relatable.

But that’s just what I think. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
