"Born and brought up in Chembur, a Mumbai suburb, in the 80's, Raghu Kumar has his first brush with filmstars as a child. Ever since, he is intrigued by the workings of the film industry. He grows up to be a film journalist. In the 90's, Raghu is hired by popular film journalist Rajeev Mehra for the prestigious newspaper The News. His big story is an interview of yesteryear star Parveen Babi. Thus starts his tryst with journalism and he then moves on to reporting for news channels, where he has his own programme. But all is not hunky-dory. A trap is laid by a senior colleague to trip him up and he walks right into it. It takes him two years to bounce back. Despite doing well, hobnobbing with top filmstars and getting invited to the best parties in town, why does Raghu hate Bollywood?
