We are always intimidated by a celebrity’s good looks. These stars have amazed us on the big screen and sizzled on the red carpet. We think they are just actors or musicians but they are much more than that.

Here are some actors who can boast of talents other than acting.

Jacqueline Fernandes

Jacqueline Fernandez has played several girl-next-door and glamorous roles. But the actress loves riding horses and regularly takes horse-riding sessions at the Mahalaxmi Racecourse in Mumbai.

Richa Chadha

Richa Chadha has successfully made her presence felt in Bollywood with her impressive acting skills in a short span. Not many know that Richa is a very good singer and has a lovely singing voice and has been training for the same. Soon, we will hear the diva making her singing debut in one of her upcoming films.

Shraddha Kapoor

Shraddha Kapoor has proved her acting mettle, delivering hits after hits. But you will be surprised to know that she has the talent to do various accents. That’s right. When Shraddha does a British or a Russian one, all you need to do is close your eyes and we bet you’d forget that it is Shraddha who’s talking.

Vicky Kaushal

Not many are aware of this, but apart from acting, Vicky Kaushal also likes to rap. In his free time, when Vicky is not shooting, he loves listening to a different genre of music and writing new lyrics and end up learning his favourite rap songs.

Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi’s love for painting was seen in her Lootera, where she taught Ranveer Singh the art of using the brush. But the actress has set up a studio at her house where she plays with colours. She is now planning to auction her paintings online, to help raise funds for creating awareness about breast cancer.

Taapsee Pannu

Actress Taapsee Pannu has been garnering lauds from every nook and corner for her character in Pink. Her chilling performance has struck quite the chord with viewers. But the actress is also a sports lover and an ace squash player, she can easily beat one in the game of squash.

Vidya Balan

Apart from playing strong characters in her films, there’s another little-known fact associated with actress Vidya Balan. Her poetic side comes out only when she is in her best mood or in the company of her best buddies. Not only that, Vidya is a good mimic and can mime anyone, especially famous film personalities.
