Celebrity blogger Malini Agarwal, better known as Miss Malini, is out with her debut book #ToTheMoon: How I Blogged My Way to Bollywood which tells the story of her journey in entertainment journalism.
Priyanka Chopra wrote her foreword and has been widely endorsed on the social media by Bollywood celebrities.
The creator of brand MissMalini, has come out with her first book in which she describes her journey and how she took blogging and entertainment journalism to new heights.
When she first moved to Mumbai nearly two decades ago, she had two suitcases, one friend, and lived in an apartment with six girls and a pigeon.
“And every single night this suicidal bird would fly around the living room, where I slept on the floor, threatening to impale itself on the ceiling fan as I cowered under a bed sheet. My rent was Rs 625 and Facebook hadn’t been invented yet,” says Malini.
“All I had was an alpha numeric pager and a headful of dreams. But I wanted my life to be extraordinary and something told me that Mumbai city, with all its kitschy neon lights and leopard print taxis, was where that was going to happen,” she adds.
“I connect with Malini because carving your own path is one of my strongest beliefs,” the Quantico actor writes in the foreword. At the end of each chapter in the book, MissMalini provides tips like “Giving up on one dream doesn’t make you a quitter. Quitting dreaming does”, “be kind, even to your competition’.
