The magnetic enigma of Bollywood draws a lot of dreamers towards its glam. Unfortunately, not everyone makes it big in B-town, not even star-kids, sometimes. Here is a list of few celebs who completely turned the situation around and are now running successful businesses:
1. Dino Morea
After his career in Bollywood shrinked to being Bipasha's ex only, Dino started investing in other ventures. He opened up a chain of restaurant cum bar in Mumbai which is doing pretty well.
2. Suniel Shetty
After witnessing a soaring success his popularity started declining in the industry and then Suniel moved onto hospitality business. He owns a couple of gyms and restaurants in Mumbai. The actor also owns a famous club in Mumbai.
3. Twinkle Khanna
Twinkle left Bollywood(for good, of course) right before she got married. She found her calling in interior designing and now runs a home decor company. She has authored two top-selling novels and also gets appreciated by readers for her weekly column in a leading daily.
4. Ronit Roy
The actor can still be seen playing different roles in movies and TV shows but he's known in Bollywood for his security service provider company. The elite clientele of this company includes stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and SRK. Ronit started this business a decade ago and is still the best in the industry.
5. Uday Chopra
A filmy background is not a guarantee of making it big in Bollywood. After working in a handful of movies and also starring in some multi-starrers, Uday's popularity did not grow as much. He is now a CEO of YRF Entertainments. He is also the founder of Yomics, which creates comics about Yash Raj Films.
6. Tulip Joshi
She made her debut with a Yash Raj production, which is like a dream launch for newcomers. Tulip did not rush and took her own time to chose her next movie. She never received a massive fame through her work in Bollywood but her current business is now creating a lot of buzz. Her consulting firm is reportedly a million dollar company.
7. Preity Zinta
Preity is a co-owner of the Indian Premier League cricket team Kings XI Punjab. After enjoying the success of her Bollywood career, Preity moved onto other businesses. She is also the founder of a production company. Her net worth reportedly is $30 million!!!
8.Malaika Arora Khan
After working as a VJ, actor, dancer and a model, Malaika ventured into clothing business. She has been collaborating with an online store where she is an editor and the collections are styled by her.
