Tens of thousands of artists have contributed to Hindi cinema since 1931. Barring a few famous ones, other are long forgotten and are destined for obscurity. By sheer determination the authors have obtained information on more than 30 such artists, eg Khalil, Baakre, Baby Akhtar and Latika.
There are scores of others with similar names. Their biographies and filmographies are often mixed up even in well-known books and popular websites. By deep research the authors have distinguished between more than 25 such cases, eg Shyams, Rajkumars, Zubeidas and Shashi Kapoors.
The book is illustrated by more than 60 rare and not-before-seen pictures of these long forgotten artists.
