In spite of being fabulously successful actors, there are a handful of celebrities who have decided to take the path less travelled.

6 Bollywood Stars Who Went Behind The Lens

Have a look at these Bollywood superstars who decided to take a risk and become directors and producers. Here’s a list of 6 Bollywood Celebs who went behind the lens:

 

1. Aamir Khan 

Aamir Khan not only is an extremely talented actor, but he is also a very gifted producer. While he was still just an actor, he was aware that no film producer would appreciate an actor’s perspective on the film, and that’s why Aamir went on to co-produce most of his films. Three of Aamir Khan Productions’ films have won the Filmfare Best Movie Award.
