He looks on in anguish as his betrayed wife, Mangala, a well-known playback singer, sinks slowly into alcoholism. When Zarina abandons him he is overwrought and dies of an overdose, friendless and alone.A Very Strange Man is not only a close, personal look at an actors rise to fame and glory, but an insightful and critical examination of the Bombay film scene of the time, by one who knew it at first hand.This irreverent, sharply observed narrative is vintage Chughtai!
