Leela

Sub title: A Patchwork Life

Author: Leela Naidu, Jerry Pinto

"Leela Naidu was listed as one of the five most beautiful women in the world by Vogue magazine. But she was much more. She was the fine-boned, haunting face in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anuradha; she was the woman who refused to sign Raj Kapoor’s films four times; she was Dom Moraes’ muse, his unpaid secretary, his best friend. Jean Renoir taught her acting and Salvador Dali used her as a model for a Madonna. Leela is a memoir that is charming, idiosyncratic and a window to Leela’s intriguing life. Everyone who met her has a Leela Naidu story. This is her version. "
