The cinematic canvas of Bollywood is not only a medium, it is a sense of belonging; as much as it is for the actors as it is for their audiences. There is another canvas though; one that allows our busy actors to rejuvenate themselves. We are talking about the canvas of sketches and colors. It is the passion for painting that many of our actors have revealed to us over time. This side of their talent, given their busy schedules, doesn’t allow for too much indulgence but when it does, just like in their films, the actors give it their all here too.
Ileana is an ace actor, a fashion icon, and a painter too. The first time she revealed the inner painter in her, she did it a little differently than what the norm might be. She piqued her audience’s attention by sharing a small poem that served as the prelude to her artwork and then went on to reveal the actual painting.
Millennial heartthrob, Siddhant Chaturvedi is another name on this list. Taking to his Instagram, he recently shared a picture of himself, a palette in hand, painting a serene image on the canvas. No sooner did the post hit his gram, double taps began to pour in for the actor.
For some of our beloved stars, sketching is also a seasonal hobby. Take for example the case of the sultry Tara Sutaria. Monsoon is that time of the year when Tara loves to indulge in her love for charcoal painting.
Not many know that Wamiqa Gabbi is a wonderful painter too. She is totally self-taught. She hopes she can find the time to learn the art professionally someday but until then there is no stopping her from indulging in colors and paintbrushes. Painting is a meditative process for her, one that she constantly looks forward to.
Next in line is mass queen, Sonakshi Sinha. Her love for exploring faces has gotten her to explore her passion for sketching time and again. Every face tells a story and through her art, Sonakshi is creating visual stories.
Last but not the least, no filmy list is fully complete without the mention of King Midas of Bollywood, Salman Khan. The uber cool actor makes everything look so damn easy. Be it his action sequences or his workout regimes, there is always ease with which he does things. The same goes for his love for sketching and painting as well.
