The wheels of luck can twist for any person, regardless of how victorious and famed you are at any given time, and these 5 film stars are evidence that when it comes to wealth, you can never be too sure.
In this list, we have listed 5 Bollywood stars who shared their bankruptcy stories and here is everything you should know.
One of Bollywood's mega stars, Big B had once stated that how he went insolvent in the year 2000 with Rs 90 crore as debt. As per reports, 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' turned out to be his only saving grace.
He had said, “In the year 2000, when the entire world was celebrating the new century, I was celebrating my disastrous fortune. There were no films, no money, no company, a million legal cases against the company and the tax authorities had put notice of recovery on my home.”
Preity saw failure when she put on the producer's hat. Reportedly, after her first production 'Ishkq in Paris' failed to woo audiences, the movie's writer-director Abbas Tyrewala lodged a case in opposition to Preity for non-payment of dues. In fact, she had to put her apartment building on rent to make payments and her bestie Salman Khan helped him in her bad times.
Govinda's misfortune with money became the hot topic when he admitted about being bankrupted at his daughter's movie premiere. The disturbed actor shared how he hardly managed to survive for days and struggled to even take on a taxi or rickshaw.
Sunny Deol’s cousin Abhay Deol too paid a hefty price (exactly) for becoming film maker. His home production 'One By Two' was a big dud at the box office and made him suffer a gigantic financial loss. The actor even sell his homes to pay back all the loaning sums.
Super star and Bollywood hunk Shah Rukh Khan was also on the brink of going completely broke after 'Ra.One' and its devastating innings at BO.
The actor admitted that the production of the movie cost him a fortune and the movie's failure almost demolished his bank balance.
