Use the #MTthree years ago. Now she’s back in Bollywood and wants to regain the crown that she left behind when she ran away from Arfaaz. It seems everyone who used to idolize her has forgotten her. In the competitive world of starry glamour, the only way she can restart her career is trash the past and make some waves.

For no logical reason, the knowledge had a sharp edge, stabbing her insides deeply.
Arfaaz’s gaze was fixed on the flush deepening on her cheeks. The colour of anger…or joy at getting her freedom?
It had been a mistake to pick her up in his arms, to give in to the urge to subdue that stubborn defiance. Three years since he’d touched her, yet her bones felt as delicate under his hands as the night he’d gripped her shoulders in anger. Evoking the same remorse one might feel for handling a bird badly.
She had worn a metal colored dress that night. He could still feel the slithery fabric beneath his fingers. Another of her risqué dresses, with deceptively demure full sleeves while the shocker was the back. Which was missing. He had never objected to what she wore, though primitive instincts protested. She had a media image to maintain. He hadn’t wanted to act the possessive husband.
A mistake, he thought again. Even the brief brush of her body against his had lit a spark that reminded him of how possessive he’d wanted to be.
She had taken enough advantage of him. The grim thought rose from a host of emotions. He’d suffered, he’d been fooled, he’d been dumped. Was he going to take it all and let her go as easy as pie?
‘If you want a divorce, you’ll have to do a small favour for me first,’ he told her.
‘Something which is important to me. Then you’ll be free to go.’
He shrugged, letting her make what she could out of it.
‘Anyway, we can’t stand here and talk it out. Come inside. We’ll discuss it over dinner.’
‘Yes, divorce must be one of the prime discussable topics for dinnertime conversation,’ she said waspishly.
‘For everything spectacular Piya the topnotch actress has done, this must be the downslide indeed. To tamely sit across her husband and rationally chat over the break-up of her marriage,’ he jibed harshly.
‘However, I think it’s time for you to take a step down from the pedestal.’
