Meanwhile, Kajol seems to have taken a liking to mythology.
She posted this picture of her 'rereading' a copy of Amish Tripathi's fictional book Raavan: Enemy of Aryavarta.
It is the author's third book in the trilogy after Scion of Ishkavu and Sita: Warrior of Mithila which narrates the story of Ravan before he kidnaps Sita. Photograph: Courtesy Kajol/Instagram

Sonali Bendra is a voracious reader and also has a book club where she invites young and budding authors to discuss their work.
During the lockdown, she was busy promoting this book by Ted Chian.
The actor also shared this quote from former US president Barack Obama: 'Exhalation by Ted Chiang is a collection of short stories that will make you think, grapple with big questions, and feel more human. The best kind of science fiction.' Photograph: Courtesy Sonali Bendre/Instagram

This are some books Sonali recommended her followers to pick up.

And finally, we have Reese Witherspoon with her recommendation for April: Untamed by Glennon Doyle.
'This memoir is so packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today, what did we learn as young girls about how to behave or believe, and why we need to free ourselves from a lot of these ideas that don’t work anymore. (Hot tip: Being 'selfless' is not the highest goal a woman can achieve!!)
'This book spoke to me so loudly and clearly...I swear I highlighted something in EVERY chapter,' the actor shared in her post. Photograph: Courtesy Reese Witherspoon/Instagram
