“I’m following the footsteps of superstars and the repercussion is an ever-present risk. It is not unusual for me to feel inadequate, to feel frustrated, to feel that no matter what I achieve, in comparison to my parents and my brother, I will always fall short”, said Soha Ali Khan of the Pataudi family while discussing her debut book, “The Perils Of Being Moderately Famous”, with actor-writer, Jayant Kripalani in Apeejay Kolkata Literary Festival.
