Shailendra Singh to expose stars with F…ck Knows
The media honcho is penning a book that promises to blow the lid off showbiz

Known as much for his outspokenness and frank-speak as for being extremely close to any number of actors and sportspersons, head honcho of Percept Ltd, Shailendra Singh, is perhaps most suitable for this sort of thing.
It is learnt Singh is now ready to release his tell-all book titled F…ck Knows that promises to be one hell of an expose. The memoirs, which he has been secretly putting together for the last two years, will blow the lid off show business and expose the chinks that threaten to destroy the very foundation of Indian sports, especially that gentleman’s game called cricket.
In particular, the chapters devoted to Bollywood icons are bound to raise eyebrows and ruffle quite a few feathers in an industry known for its touchiness. What with direct, blunt references to the work ethics of some of the biggest names in the business. Singh’s no-holds-barred account is very likely to bring its own baggage of legal hassles, especially from those who have been questioned and challenged.
So much so, Singh has equipped himself with necessary safeguards. “I am going to say at the very beginning of my book that anyone who sues me for defamation will have to go through a lie-detection test. I am very clear about my facts and my observations on showbiz. So anyone challenging my facts and observations will have to prove me wrong,” he said.
Reluctant to divulge any further details about his book, Singh simply said, “All I can tell you is, it’s about how little of what we know to be stardom makes so little sense. How do you explain Asia’s greatest entertainer selling cement and hair oil? No one has an answer. That’s why my book is called F..ck Knows.”
