Bollywood Beauties with Brains
For some celebrities, actors and singers, being a star is not just enough. They are entrepreneurs and run successful businesses in between their glamour life. It might be hard to imagine, but even some of our B-town celebrities have more to them than just their dazzling on-screen persona.
- AMEESHA PATEL
She may not be a very successful actress in B-town, but she certainly tops this list with many surprises. Yes, she is a gold medallist in Economics from Tufts University and was also offered a job at Morgan Stanley shortly after graduating. And that is the reason, she had a tough time convincing her family of her choice of profession as an actor.
- PRIETY ZINTA
This dimpled beauty is graduated with English Honours, and has even received a Post Graduate degree in Criminal Psychology. Along with Best Actress award in films like Veer Zaara, she’s also proved that she’s one of the savviest businesswomen out there. As an owner of IPL Team Kings XI Punjab and her fingers in several other pies, her enthusiasm has guaranteed that she exceeds at everything she touches whether it’s a business or film production.
- SHABANA AZMI
How can we deny the truth that Azmi is one of the Bollywood’s most cerebral performers till date. She is a social personality and has come to be known as a serious activist too. Earlier, she’s also been appointed as the UN’s goodwill ambassador, an honour reserved for a very special few.
- KONKONA SEN SHARMA
Being a daughter of a journalist father and a genius film-maker mother (Aparna Sen), undoubtedly Konkona Sen born with cerebral and prodigious qualities. She is a tremendous arthouse cinema performer and an intelligent actress, in fact, Shabana Azmi said in an interview, that Sen is the most intelligent actress around in B-town.
- SOHA ALI KHAN
Just like Konkona Sen, Soha Ali Khan too comes from a rather profound and royal bloodline. She earned a Post Graduate degree in International Relations from LSE and before joining Bollywood industry, she had worked with Ford and Citibank. With her intellectual capabilities, she has clearly struck a fine balance between the two worlds of acting and business.
