Open Book By Kubbra Sait – Book Review

I rarely pick up and read books written by celebrities from India. Because you read so much about them in the media.That you feel you know them.

But, the open book was something that I was inclined toward because it’s written by an entertainer who became an overnight success post the release of India’s First global series Sacred Games and played a challenging character for her first performance. Yes! Cuckoo! From Sacred Games has written a book.

It’s about the obstacles she faced growing up as an individual, introvert and a girl who was mostly a misfit until she found herself.

Kubbra Sait is completely unfiltered and honest in this open Book.

The Book has twenty-odd chapters each describing a phase of her growing years.
