Yes, you heard that right.
I, Me And Salman – 95% Fiction is the name of the latest book on Salman Khan.
Now, if it is on Salman Khan, how can it be fiction? And if it is 95% fiction, then what is the remaining 5%?
What exactly is the genre of this book—fiction, romance, or biography?
Well, it’s a little bit of all of the above.
I, Me And Salman charts 20 years of Salman’s life through the eyes of an ordinary Indian girl, while making her own journey in life. Predictably, our girl Radha is in love with Salman, and wonders if she will ever meet her love Salman, but has no dreams of ever being with him. Instead, she builds her own sweet and somewhat delusional world where Salman is her friend, or as she says, “Friend-in-Mind”. In this world of I, Me and Salman, Salman is Radha’s friend, philosopher, and guide in her journey.
The stress is on Salman’s equation with Radha, an ordinary girl with zero access to him, and on Radha’s life journey. Both of these are 95% Fiction as suggested by the book’s title. As for Salman, he may say in his trademark style—Hataa saawan ki ghata! What about my katha? Well, that is the 5% of this two-volume book in Hinglish.
What’s in it for Salman fans?
It is describing Salman and his life story through the eyes of the average girl who sees him from a distance. And for the rest, it’s a fictional romantic story of the average girl, who is charting her own heartbreak path, just like her love Salman.
