Indian celebrities in the film industry get media attention more often than not. Like when they act in a movie and when it becomes a blockbuster hit at the box office, they hit the headlines for all the right reasons. The stars across all the cities have scores of supporters not just in India but elsewhere too.
They do get paid handsomely for each movie and they are known to lead a luxurious life. Besides earning in the grand stage, they also get tonnes of bonuses to earn money in the form of advertisements or endorsing brands.
However, there are some celebrities who don’t want to set a wrong example as they have turned down lucrative deals. They could have easily added more money to their wallets but they chose to remain simple and they became an inspiration amongst the masses.
Let’s take a look at the actors who have created a better world by coming up with their opinions:
It is no doubt that John Abraham is among the hottest male celebrities in the Bollywood industry. He is someone who cares about his body and for that, he spent more money and insured his body part. He has a sizzling hot body and has decided to insure his butt when the insurance company approached him.
But when the actor was aligned with tobacco or alcohol he refused the offer politely.
The Kesari actor had rejected the offer to do a pan masala advertisement and there is a specific reason as to why he did turn down the deal. He is a teetotaller in real life and an inspiration to all of us.
Akshay Kumar is not just a reputed actor in the Bollywood industry but also a philanthropist and a good human being. When it comes to helping others at the need of the hour, Akshay is second to none. He has not only extended his services to the film industry but has also won people’s hearts by giving back to society.
Bollywood Megastar, Amitabh Bachchan refused to endorse soft drink brands after he confronted a schoolgirl who asked him why he promotes useless things that her school teacher had called “poison”. After this, he had also requested other celebrities to understand the brand thoroughly before endorsing them.
Big B has also pledged to donate money to charity projects. Also, he is quite often praised for his immense contributions to social causes. This goes to show why Amitabh Bachchan is loved and admired by many.
He once said that social workers should be appreciated more than celebrities as they push themselves beyond human imagination for the betterment of society.
Bollywood star Aamir Khan doesn’t appear in advertisements to endorse big brands or products but when he does, it would be only for a social cause.
Just like Sai Pallavi, Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor made the same decision by ignoring to work with a fairness brand. Ranbir Kapoor had made it very clear that he doesn’t want to promote the concept of colour discrimination as that would bring chaos to the country and it was so easy for this star to reject a big offer.
