Puneet Bhandal

Hello and thanks for visiting my website. I am the author of
the Bollywood Academy fiction series and am delighted that
Starlet Rivals is now available in the UK, USA and Canada.

I'm a former Bollywood film journalist and a huge fan of Indian cinema. Starlet Rivals is my debut novel, published by Lantana Publishing. I hope you enjoy reading the book - I certainly loved writing it. Looking forward to hearing all your comments!


Book 2, titled Melody Queen, will be published on June 1, 2023 and I am currently getting down to writing Book 3!

I am also the owner of an occasionwear boutique where I get to design red-carpet dresses. My gowns have been modelled by real-life stars including Miss World contestants. Visit or follow my page @puneetbhandal on Instagram
