Why bank on one profession when you can use the base you’ve built to straddle multiple ventures? It’s a question several stars are asking themselves before plunging headlong into the start-up arena. That some of Bollywood’s biggest actors (Shah Rukh and Salman Khan included) are also astute entrepreneurs is well known, but filmdom’s long-legged lovelies are not to be outdone.
Before Shilpa Shetty acquired the Kundra name, she was already selling fitness DVDs and perfume. With husband Raj by her side, sharp-as-a-tack Shilpa has branched out into countless other business ventures. Decades ago, Madhuri Dixit made her mark as a dancer extraordinaire; today she fronts a popular online dancing class. With Malaika Arora Khan and Bipasha Basu already profiting from their status as fashion icons, it seems logical that beauty idols like Katrina Kaif would venture into the world of business at some point too. And now we hear the time has come, with Katrina looking to launch her own line of beauty products.
“Katrina is looking at speciality retailing, which will make her looks from all her films available,” a source confirmed recently, adding: “The products will be organic and cruelty-free, and will be available in UK stores as well as online by the year-end.”
Here’s welcoming Kat on to the start-up bandwagon, for what promises to be an interesting ride!
