There are not many actresses in Bollywood who would finish off reading a book in a day. For one, model and actress Tulip Joshi, who plays a suicide bomber in Pooja Bhatt's Dhokha, is one of the kind. The actress was introduced to the habit by her beau Captain Vinod Nair. Gradually, this avid bookworm's appetite has grown to such an extent that she now owns a huge library at home.
And it's not just reading that attracts her, we hear she also writes novellas or short novels and stories in leisure. Says Tulip: "I love reading books to the effect that I get really involved in what I read. There have been days when I have not eaten at all after reading a particularly touching tale. I also love writing… it gives such freedom to your thoughts. I write quite a lot of stories and novellas, based on what I see around me." Now, we guess it doesn't matter how well she does as an actress. Bollywood is in dire need of good scriptwriters and Tulip seems tailored for the job.
