Being an actor is a challenging profession. Some actors despite ruling in the Bollywood industry also aspire to reach greater heights into starting or investing in new business ventures.
In my opinion, talent comes with shelf life. However, a business can go on, almost forever. Celebrities realize this fact, and many of them have decided do not to put all their eggs in one basket and secure their future with investments into life beyond showbiz. Their name, fame, and the ready inventory of cash also make a business that much easier to get into, and a new wave of entrepreneurship is not lost on them.
Celebrities have a separate Brand value in Society and while talking about Bollywood celebrities they have a huge impact on the minds of people.
