Five Bollywood Actors Who Produced Better Films Than They Acted In

It’s a known fact that Bollywood actors get paid handsomely for their movies, brand endorsements, special appearances on TV shows, or even cutting a ribbon at a store inauguration. While some of them invest in sports leagues or restaurants, few back projects by other budding filmmakers. Find out which Bollywood actors produced films that may just be better than the ones they starred in.

1. Salman Khan – Chillar Party

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari and Vikas Bahl, Chillar Party was a sleeper hit. The film that starred mostly kids also had a special dance number featuring Ranbir Kapoor.


2. John Abraham – Vicky Donor

Shoojit Sircar may be a big name today, but it was only after Vicky Donor that people started taking him seriously. John Abraham was lauded for backing a project on such a sensitive topic.


3. Anushka Sharma – NH10

NH10 was gritty and disturbing, to say the least. Anushka, who starred in this thriller, also co-produced it. She is one of the youngest actresses to do so.


4. Priyanka Chopra – Ventilator

Who would have thought that the international star would produce a Marathi movie? But she did and what a film Ventilator was! Reportedly, the actress is still upset about it not being picked as India’s official entry to the Oscars.


5. Aamir Khan – Peepli Live

Aamir has always made bold decisions as an actor and the same reflected in the films he has produced. Peepli Live was one of the best Hindi movies of 2010.
