In the homes of the stars too gods from different religions live side-by-side, as this book vividly demonstrates. "Mixed marriages" are no exceptions. Aryan, Shahrukh and Gauri Khan’s five-year-old son, puts it succinctly: his god is Ganapati Allah. Take the other Khan, Salman’s family: his mother, a Hindu, used to read the Hanuman Chalisa to him when he was a child. His sister is married to a Hindu, the brother to a Catholic (Malaika Arora).

Pradhan has been able to get the stars to open up. These voices of sanity are like balm to our soul. Listen to Shahrukh: "We are going to have a prayer room with all the gods...if you ask me, I think the Gods must be saying, if it (Babri-Ayodhya) is causing such a problem, give it to Christ."
