But only some manage to reach to the highest and become a renowned celebrity.
Amateurs who try their luck in this Dark World doesn’t always end up gaining success here.

But luck also have much to do with your fruitful destiny. Or if you are lucky enough to be born in the family with a ‘filmy’ background.
