5 Bollywood Actors Who Had To Sell/Rent Their Homes To Pay Loans
When we think of a mega-Bollywood star, a person struggling financially is the last thing that would come to our mind. But there comes a time in every person’s life when things get tough and even the most privileged have to deal with them.

Here are 5 Bollywood actors who had to sell their homes to pay loans.

Amitabh Bachchan is hands down the biggest star Bollywood has ever produced. It is hard to even imagine that Bollywood’s Big B would have to sell stuff, but in 2000, his company ABCL went bankrupt.
