Priyanka Sinha Jha’s debut book:
 
The Book– ‘Supertraits of Superstars’ 
Films stars can be inspirational in more ways than one. This is the essence of this inspirational book that profiles 11 Film Superstars like Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan to name a few, who have turned themselves into success stories. Basically, it is a self-help book which focusses on the single defining supertrait of each of the 11 superstars. A trait which if imbibed by the reader can make him a success too.
 
Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Vidya Balan, Karan Johar. Each of these celebrities are adored and looked up to by millions who aspire to emulate their success stories. But what is it that separates them and other Bollywood stars, from the rest? Which is that one defining trait that makes them stand out and how can you benefit from knowing it?

In this one-of-a-kind book, Priyanka Sinha Jha looks at eleven luminaries from Bollywood and the attribute that is perhaps most responsible for their success. She details their stories, their struggles, their efforts to overcome setbacks and what it is about them that made them not just reach the top of their game but stay there. Be it Amitabh Bachchan’s discipline, Aamir Khan’s perfectionist nature, Salman Khan’s generosity, John Abraham’s enterprise or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s grace each star has one unique quality that others can imbibe to reach greater heights in their own lives. 

With pithy observations and inspirational conversations, Supertraits of Superstars will show you how to live life star-size.
