Some of our Bollywood actors are multi-talented and have proved it time and again with their great acting skills, film direction, playback singing, dancing and even playing a musical instrument. Acting has never been an easy task. Enthralling the audience in India is certainly not a walk in the park. You need some extraordinary talent for that and for some Bollywood stars, acting alone is not enough. They go beyond that and the hidden talent they possess, genuinely comes as a surprise.
We have seen many actors play an instrument on screen, not all of them know to play one in real life. There are few actors who not just play a musical instrument on screen, but in real life as well.
