If we’re in the alternate universe right now, wouldn’t you be a wee bit curious about what our famous Bollywood celebs be doing if not acting? Well, here we are to quench your thirst. This is the list of five Bollywood celebrities alternate career options if they weren’t the established stars that they are today.
1. Farhan Akhtar – Stand Up Comedian :
The ZNMD monolog ‘….toh Zinda ho tum’ made us all reach out to grab the tissue box. His angelic voice might also make the phrase “ Ache din aayenge” sound really believable. But only a few of us know that Farhan has an amazing sense of humor which makes comedy a great alternate career choice for him.
His witty tweet about the potholes condition in Mumbai made the readers have a “bellyaching” kinda laugh. All enjoyed his anchoring in IIFA 2016. His witty comebacks at one of EIC’s podcast are definite evidence that stand up comedy would be the best alternative career option for him.
2. Nawazuddin Siddiqui – Government Servant:
One can easily picture Nawazuddin as one of those arrogant government servants that sit behind those dusty desks. That’s it. Just sit. Well, I’m sure he’ll still be more productive. It’s just not difficult to imagine Siddique yelling at his co-workers and procrastinating his tasks. He can easily be placed in this chaotic scenario.
He’d definitely make a part of the “Gangs of Governpur”. Thus, a government worker would be the best Alternate career option for Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
3. Ranveer Singh – Rapper
If government employees were even half as enthusiastic as Ranveer, India would become a whole new country. Don’t you think? This party animal is always so fueled up with energy that it would make one wonder why we aren’t generating hydroelectric powers from him already.
Jokes apart, After watching the trailer of his latest film “Gully boy,” we can all agree that rapping would be an amazing alternate career choice for Ranveer. Our own Eminem in Bollywood. Can’t you totally hear him sing “from Padmavat to Gully boy, I’m giving hits on hits, but now my Indian niggas be asking when I’ll be having kids.”
4.Priyanka Chopra – A Motivational Speaker
This Bollywood icon is the perfect example of beauty with brain. She’s never been afraid to share her perspective on any subject whatsoever. Her way of speaking boldly on national and international platforms never fails to leave us mesmerized and motivated.
She’s ambitious and fierce which makes ‘motivational speaker’ the optimal alternative career option for her. In 2017, She was given the opportunity to deliver the annual penguin lecture in the most prestigious publication house where she spoke on “breaking the glass ceiling’’ and later on at UNICEF, Variety, about woman empowerment. This desi girl can motivate you to get out of your pajamas and take control of your life and be the best version of yourself.
5. Mithun Chakraborty – Therapy Dog Trainer.
The disco dancer also holds an immense passion for helping Indian stray dogs. Not only does he have more than 70 dogs at his place in Ooty, but also is a part of the Kennel Club of India. WHAT?! So many dogs? For Mithun Da, they aren’t just dogs, they are family.
And to prove his love, he’s given his surname to all of his dogs. Yep, that’s right. They are all a part of the Chakraborty famjam. And for this obsessive love he has for the four-legged, we believe that being a therapy dog trainer would be Perfect for Mithun Da and would work as his alternative career choice.
6.Ranbir Kapoor – Secret Spy
Who would doubt such an innocent face? Us ladies would think of Ranbir to be the last person who’d be involved in such underground businesses. And that’s what gives him an edge to get away with problems.
He just has to go “Charma-ka-dabra!!” and make evidence disappear if you know what I mean. That’s why secret spy detective would be the best alternative career option for Ranbir.
7. Karan Johar – Matrimonial Agent:
Karan is one of those Indian aunties that catch hold of you and hand you a list of rishtas and then place a gun on your head until you don’t choose one of them. Oh wait, did I just describe the entire working of “koffee with Karan”?
KJ in himself is a whole social network of Bollywood. Thus, he’d be a fantastic matchmaker! And therefore, a matrimonial agent would be this Bollywood Actor’s Alternate career choice.
8.Kangana Ranaut – Social Activist:
Oh the queen of Bollywood, whose crown is made of the darkest controversies, but heels so high that she doesn’t care!! She’s fearless and fierce. Not being subtle is what makes her the intimidating woman that she is today. Isn’t it easy to imagine Kangana fighting for the social rights of people? Because after all, we’ve all seen her fight the Aditya Pancholi controversy then, to the Hrithik Roshan controversy now.
This wild tigress bravely spoke about nepotism which set the Bollywood jungle on fire. India could totally use such a rebellious, bold personality for its welfare. Hence, social activist would be best for this Bollywood Actor’s Alternate career choice.
