A book priced at Rs 1 lakh! Now, one really needs to know what is it that makes this tome worth all that money. Firefly — A Fairytale by Ritu Beri is indeed priced at Rs one lakh and is all about the designer’s memories of her 15 years in the world of fashion. Talking to the media at the preview of her book on Saturday, Beri said, “When you see what is inside, you will realise that it is worth even more!” This limited edition book (of 100 copies) will be launched on March 4.
The price tag sure drew more gasps than the presence of Bollywood star Akshay Kumar at the preview. He, however, confessed that he was not into reading at all and added: “This would be the first book I would have ever read.” Considering this, we wondered why Beri had selected him for the launch of her book? Beri replied: “This book is about a heart and soul that are pure, and surely, Akshay is one of the few people who have a huge heart. Hence, he is the perfect person to launch my book.” She also thanked him for giving an important award ceremony in Mumbai a miss to be present for the launch of her book.
Beri has also published this book, which “is not my autobiography, it just talks about my jour ney till now and is divided into four sections,” she said.
The first chapter talks about her in spiration, while the next is about Paris where she earned interna tional acclaim in the world of fashion.
The rest of the chapters are about her extensive travels and her personal life.
