Summary

Mehboob Khan rose from the ranks of a junior artiste to be one of Hindi cinema's all-time greats. His impressive body of work included such films as Humayun, Andaaz, Aan, Amar and Mother India. While the path-breaking Andaaz (1949) was way ahead of its time in theme and treatment, Mother India, which has achieved cult status, was the only Indian film to come closest to winning the coveted Oscar. The book traces the fascinating story of a 16-year old who ran away from his home in a tiny village, Sarar, in Gujarat to become an actor and who ended up being one of India's greatest filmmakers, often referred to as India's Cecil B. DeMille.
