Being a Bollywood celebrity is sometimes very exhausting. It often means being in the spotlight for the most part of the day, even when the cameras may not be rolling. From filming movies to ads and attending various events, it’s more than just an acting job.
And thus, keeping up with all the demands of being a star isn’t the job of just one individual. It takes an entire team of people who work behind the scenes to make our favourite star’s life seamless and a whole lot extra glamourous.
That’s the reason that stars are often seen giving a lot of credit to their team, it’s because they deserve that and more. More than a few times we have seen Bollywood stars expressing their gratitude towards their service and hard work. Let’s take a look at Bollywood actors who showered their staff members with extravagant gifts as a token of appreciation.
