Bollywood consists of a large number of artists who are well known. They have contributed to the film industry by giving stellar performances. Most successful artists earn big bucks owing to their talent. With success comes not only money but also a sense of responsibility towards the development of our own society – giving something back. Not all celebrities may see it the same way but some stars do know their roles towards the society and contribute by working for various causes. We are here with a list of six celebrities who have utilized their power and money for a great cause – welfare of the society.
