Fame Game Episodes 3 and 4: Themes! Prostitution and Giving to Others
Huh, this series is surprising me with how good it is. I thought it was just gonna be a fluffy thriller with Madhuri at the middle, but it’s really digging deep on some interesting things.

Let’s see how many we can think of so I can vary my delightful morning seranades!Continue reading
