Bollywood is a little universe in itself where innumerable stars glitter. Its not new to us that most of the successful actors carry with them a surname that adds glamour, fame and name effortlessly. But there also are those actors who struggle from scratch. These newbies don’t really have anyone to guide them through and are often seen struggling to make it to the top in this big, magical industry. But what happens when someone offers a helping hand? When someone agrees to be a guide? When someone manages to be there when things seem to go wrong? There is a word for this someone: A Godfather.
Today, Bollywood Celebden introduces you to two of the best Godfathers Bollywood has ever seen.
Dev Anand has mentored several debutants in Bollywood. Actors like Zeenat Aman, Guru Dutta, Tabu, Tina Munim, Jackie Shroff, Richa Sharma have been under Dev Saab’s guiding hand.
Decades later, Bollywood gets to witness another Godfather. A mentor to the newcomers of the industry in the present age, Sallu does a wonderful job. Actors to whom Salman has been a God father include Mahek Chahal, Sneha Ullal, Hazel Keech, Zarine Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Arjun Kapoor etc.
These two people have set beautiful examples of being good role models. We hope to see many more such Godfathers rise up in Bollywood.
