On my recent visit to Bombay, I came across a celebrity who was traveling via public transport. This made me think why a noteworthy face like him took this step? Won't he be surrounded by fans and inconvenience will be caused to everyone? It made me comprehend that it's not something wrong and even celebrities are normal human beings. Soon, I came back and researched about the topic.
To my surprise, it was not just one, two or three but numerous faces who happen to stick to their roots. Mind you, they are paid a very handsome amount for their work but even then they tend to do it either for fun, promotional strategies, need of the hour or simply because it's a part of their new film and they have to prepare themselves.
