What do our stars do when they’re not acting? Read on to find out…
Actors are best known for their ability to perform on-screen. But once the camera turns off, the world is really their oyster. Bollywood film stars don’t hold back when it comes to their life’s passions. Amidst hectic schedules, they cull out the time to develop their hobbies – some conventional and some unusual. Check out the hobbies these stars indulge in during their time-out.
Saif Ali Khan
The Nawab sure knows how to strike a chord and not just with his acting. He loves to play the guitar and has even played a few live gigs with the Delhi-based band, Parikrama.
Superstar Salman Khan has a passion for painting. He’s extremely secretive about his hobby and has been painting and sketching for a few years now. A few of his paintings have been sold with the proceeds being donated to his charitable organisation, Being Human. What’s more, he even sketched the poster of his film, Jai Ho and intends to repeat the feat for his production venture, Hero, starring Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty.
The Bollywood hunk has a unique love for equestrian sports namely show jumping, polo and dressage, which he developed at a young age. He also owns six trained horses at a race course.
The Ab Tak Chappan actor is immensely fond of rifle shooting and has even won a bronze medal at a State level competition. Having undergone rifle training for his movies, Nana Patekar developed a liking for the sport, thanks to his profession.
The actress got interested in pottery as part of her preparations for her role in Sanjay Gupta’s Alibaug. While the fate of the film still hangs in the balance, the actress has developed a keen love for the art form.
The Band Baaja Baaraat star is a self-proclaimed fan of rap music and can even bust a rhyme or two. He made his singing debut with a rap for Aadat Se Majboor from Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. He also did The Manchow Rap for a brand endorsement campaign recently.
The actress and model is a trained classical singer. She takes her hobby very seriously and does her riyaaz regularly. She made her debut as a playback singer in a Punjabi movie and later lent her voice for a song in Bhootnath. Juhi has also preformed in a few live shows and public events.
As quirky as his movie choices, the actor’s hobbies are eclectic too. He’s interested in interior designing and has a peculiar liking for wood carving. Abhay also took up a wood carving course in New York to fuel his passion.
For the Khiladi of Bollywood, his hobby is not far from his profession. Akshay Kumar practices Tai Chi when he is not shooting, a form of martial arts which helps control the flow of energy in the body.
