“100 books challenge is a life-changing thing that has happened to me. I was a non-reader completely. I wasn’t able to sit even for 5 minutes with the books. I was very attracted to people who read and I wanted to start reading. “

“As all the intellectuals in our industry say that actors have to be well-read and that was my weakness, and I am the person if I say something then no matter what, I do that,” said the “Laal Rang” actress.

For her, the 100 books challenge was all about commitment.

“Gradually, I loved the process of reading and it became a habit. Once I started reading, books appeared automatically. I love reading biographies, self-help, fitness, Ayurveda, and Indian history. Now I love shopping for books. I had no idea books can be such an integral part of my life. I have done 51 books and 49 more to go,” Pia Bajpai said.

“Books have changed me like anything. My perspective has changed completely. Of course, I was a little slow in the starting but now I am reading back to back. It has literally saved my life in this lockdown,” Pia Bajpai added.
