Ace politician, excellent orator and America's brand new Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris is a woman on top.

Ever since she became the country's first ever woman, first African American and first Asian American to make history with this feat, the 56 year old's life story has drawn enormous interest among anyone following the dramatic 2020 US presidential elections.

Born to an Indian scientist mom and Jamaican economist father who divorced when she was a child, Harris not only inherited their academic prowess but also a strong sense of social beliefs and activism paving the way for her remarkable political journey.

If ever her inspiring reality is adapted for reel, Sukanya Verma wonders if these Indian actors might do justice to the role. Do submit your vote at the end!

And Kamala Harris should be no exception.
