Enjoyed doing this interview for my hometown paper #Telegraph about how I researched Rani Jindan's Life for #TheLastQueen, how the pandemic changed my writing habits, the upcoming movie, etc. @HarperCollinsIN @DiyaKar73 @ShabnamSriv

Quoted @Nidhi

“If after all this the only thing I can be accused of is being stupid, then I'll take it on the chin, learn from it and move on.”

No matter what are the details of the #NidhiRazdan story, I'm shocked at the #Twitter viciousness unleashed against someone who is in a difficult, painful situation. Have you never been deceived, friends? Never made a judgement mistake? I certainly have. #phishing

#COVID is no joke, even for young people. I'm so proud of @AnishaSekar, my daughter, & her courage & openness in writing this detailed piece to help raise awareness of the debilitating effects of #LongCovid & sharing tips for sufferers & friends/family.

Excellent article on #COVID by @AnishaSekar.
