Here is a list of stars both from our own Bollywood and Hollywood industry, for whom we have suggested an alternate career option. Though most of them do not need any alternate career, it’s just our fantasy to see them in some other profession.
Amitabh Bachchan – Though this megastar of the Indian film industry does not need any alternative career, still if we have to suggest, then he can definitely turn up as a poet. This choice is not only because of the fact that he is the son of well-known poet, late Shri Harivansh Rai Bachchan, but also because he himself has an excellent choice of words. So, poetry can definitely be an option for him.
Shahrukh Khan – If not acting, then there is surely one career which will suit our ‘Badshah of Bollywood’ best, and that is becoming a marketing strategist. By looking at the ways in which he promotes and markets each film of his; we can surely say that any corporate firm will hire him as their marketing head. So, if not acting then it surely has to be marketing.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – Now, for an alternative career option, this couple can not be separated from each other. Everyone is well aware about Pitt and Jolie’s humanitarian activities and the couple has already adopted three children. So, if they have to opt for any alternate career, then that should be of social activist or NGO worker. And we are pretty sure that this couple together can actually make this world a better place for children.
Johnny Depp – Okay, I know this might sound a bit odd or probably fully crazy, but for any Depp fan the first image that comes to our mind after hearing his name is of Captain Jack Sparrow, and not of Depp’s any other character. So, for this talented actor, it might be ‘A Pirate’s Life’.
Julia Roberts – If there would have been any full-time post for ‘Smile-officer’ like Madhuri Dixit-Nene’s popular TV commercial, then we would love to see the ‘Pretty Woman’ opt for it as an alternate career option.
Sandra Bullock – The ‘Gravity’ star is known for her comic timing and is regarded as one of the best comedy actors of her time. So, if she ever plans to leave her acting career, she might turn up as a stand-up comedian.
Madhuri Dixit-Nene – This Bollywood heartthrob is a trained Kathak dancer and we have seen her wonderful dancing skills in all her films, and we thus, think that if not acting then this diva would have surely been a graceful dancer.
Vin Diesel – After his portrayal as Dominic Toretto in ‘The Fast and the Furious’ series, we can easily fantasize this star as a Formula One racing driver.
Deepika Padukone – Sorry no prizes for guessing this one correctly. For Deepika, it has to be sports. Belonging to a family of sportspersons, she herself was a National level badminton player before she became an actress.
Sunny Leone – Well, do we actually need to tell you what can be an alternate career option for this Indo-Canadian actor? She’s already got one. Or should we say that acting itself is an alternate career option for this gorgeous lady?
Sonam Kapoor – This Bollywood fashionista is better known for creating a fashion statements rather than acting in Bollywood. So, for her the best alternate career option to opt for is fashion designing, where we believe she will surely excel.
