Lakshmi Prasanna launches 'The Journey of an Actress' Book at Crossword, Hyderabad
Can you ever imagine a young beautiful village girl, never dreamt of becoming an actress, became an actress par excellence?
Yes, a strong determined girl of Haryana, bound by age old customs and traditions of her village, frees herself from the diktats of the Khap Panchayat and moves to Delhi to fit into the shoes of an HR Manager.
In an attempt to detach herself from the dazzling material attraction of corporate web culture, out of her simplicity and good heart, she becomes a victim of flesh trade, where her individuality and conscience are at stake.
There is no way left- out to put an end to the trauma she undergoes in the brothel house, but a spiritual freedom she experiences in the Ashram, once she is brought out with the help of a Police officer’s son.
Calamity strikes her again in the hands of a psycho killer, where she almost falls into the realm of death.
Swamiji in the Ashram helps her build her inner and outer courage through Yoga and Meditation to take revenge on the psychos who tormented her and the other nubile girls of the city.
She later joins the most glamorous and sought after field of films, only by chance, to become one of the top actresses of Hindi Film Industry. Can the illumination and stardom of films bind her to the profession?
The experiences of the actress told in the first person provides answers to all these questions.
