Scorpio Superstar reminds you of the real superstars of cinema and adds an edge of reality and humility to them. Chandrakanth or Chandru as he is lovingly called is the reigning superstar of Tollywood, a hunk, handsome, good-looking, smart and a man used to having his way. He falls for his social media manager when he meets her for the first time, even though she has been working for him for a while.
Ranjini, awed as she is by the superstar she still manages to keep her head when he woos her hoping to sweep her off her feet. She is beautiful, intelligent, and smart enough to stand her own in front of the superstar and a few of his ardent supporters.
Sundari has linked this love story with the zodiac signs making it interesting as the Scorpio guy and Piscean girl Ranjini fall in love and find togetherness. The fun elements of the zodiac ring true as the characters have an express courtship and wedding.
The book moves so fast that we see them married and settled within a few chapters making one wonder – what now? The actual fun starts as people are not just surprised by the wedding but envious of Ranjini ensuring that the newlyweds do not get much bliss. Family and co-workers try their best to drive them apart but with love and wit manage to outshine them. An Ex who is not really one and an aunt who behaves, unlike her stature. Ranjini is left to pacify both and even get Chandru out of trouble, quite a go-getter she is!
The story is a quick read, filled with the right amount of love and lust. Sundari ensures her books are exactly what she promises – a fun, relaxed romance. Pick any book by her and it will help you unwind and a see India through the eyes of the women protagonists. Often her books deal with a social issue that is obvious yet hushed in our lives.
#ScorpioSuperstar comes with its own message about women who work. Sundari explains the need for Ranjini to work in spite of being married to a rich superstar. How often a woman’s career is sidelined, ignored, belittled since she is not the breadwinner of the house? Even if she makes a paltry sum or works as a social service, it is the ‘work’ that is important. Sundari and #ScorpioSuperstar laud the women who work, work because they want to, not because they need to.
Love, family and our lives as a reflection, a perfect balance in yet another bestseller by the indie-published, super successful Sundari Venkatraman.
Two words for Sundari – Keep Writing.

Kollywood superstar Chandrakanth, also known as CK, is a true-blue Scorpio, communicating with his eyes and believing in showing more than telling.
His website and social media consultant Ranjini is a Piscean through and through, fiercely independent.
It is love at first glance for Chandrakanth when he meets Ranjini; so strong are his feelings that he proposes marriage on their second meeting. Ranjini, fascinated by his starry persona, gets swept off her feet. The two get married without much of the world knowing—including CK’s aunt and his ex.
The two women set out to settle their scores on Ranjini who suddenly begins to feel a strain in what was a fairy tale wedding.
While passion reigns on the one hand, there’s trouble in paradise on the other. Although CK is by her side, the Scorpio in him expects her to trust him implicitly. But can the Pisces in Ranjini accept him at his word?
Does the tension then get to their relationship? Can love survive without affirmations? Or is declaration the only way to profess one’s love?
