About the Book: 

Meet Ritu Nanda. As Raj Kapoor's daughter, she was part of the first family of Bollywood. Her marriage to Rajan Nanda of the Escorts Group led to her joining another illustrious family. Yet, she went on to carve her own identity as an insurance advisor and even got her name into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Being Ritu is the story of a woman who shed her shyness and stepped into the limelight, taking on a variety of roles - entrepreneur, insurance advisor, author, negotiator and pioneer. It's about her quiet determination, grace and courage as she lived every moment to its fullest, even while battling a dreaded disease, and touched the lives of everyone around her. It's also about those who added colour to the kaleidoscope of her life - her family, friends, colleagues and well-wishers.

With tributes from her sambandhi Amitabh Bachchan, family members Randhir Kapoor, Rima Jain, Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, as well as friends such as Karan Johar, Sonali Bendre, Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, Gauri Khan and many others, this is the story of a woman like no other. Meet Ritu Nanda. You will be happy you did.
