Of late it has been a common practice some of the old people following above technique for recognition and are achieving fruitful results. Some time ago, a faded out producer came up with an autobiography of his wherein he took a dig on legendary personalities like Megastar Chiranjeevi, K Raghavendra Rao etc.
And recently a then top politician wrote a book which had full of criticisms on many politicians of contemporary politics. He has, eventually, got enough recognition. There is also a talk that a political party is behind his writing of the book. Meanwhile a senior most filmmaker, who always comes down heavily on a few top personaliteis, is also expected to write a book soon.
