Despite Bollywood being all nepotistic and close-knit, the stars of our Hindi movies did have periods of studying and being kids. They went to acting schools, gave auditions for movies and even directed horribly amateur short films. It's nice to see Indian celebs in a human avatar, stripped away of the media glorification and over the top aura - It makes them look natural, like one of us.

Here's some videos and pictures of Bollywood celebs in a totally different light!
