Bollywood actors have a huge fan base all around the world. They are more than just celebrities for many people; they’re their heroes and idols that inspire them every day with their acting skills and life tips in movies or on TV shows and, of course, social media.
Are you one of those ardent fans who can’t get enough information about how an idol lives their life off-camera? Well, trust us, you won’t be alone because these guys never forget where they came from, never neglect their fans, they’re constantly posting, so social media means we can stay in touch.
Bollywood filmmaking has inspired millions worldwide since its start back in 1920, but over time it grew into something bigger, much like Hollywood today. Stars share their lives, but it’s their love of feline friends that has us obsessed. We can’t get enough of these cat/filmstar relationships.
The actors from the movie industry have an extraordinary relationship with their kitties. They take them on vacations and share sweet pictures on Instagram.
These celebs are crazy for their cats, but it’s not just that the animal and actor share happiness at home. It’s about mental well-being – having a pet is emotionally healthy and let’s face it, animals give unconditional love unconditionally (as long as you feed them).
Let’s look at those gorgeous felines and their celebrated cat moms.
A photo of Athiya Shetty and her cat is circulating on the internet. The picture shows both playing together in a comfy position, with the cat’s back legs stretched out against an armchair to balance itself while she scratches it behind one ear. We simply cannot handle the cuteness in this picture!
Athiya Shetty, cat lover, and daughter of actor Suniel Shetty is a talented actor in her own right. After making her debut in a romantic action film, Hero, she received an award nomination from Filmfare magazine’s Best Female Debut category and she went on to star opposite Shahid Kapoor in blockbuster films like Don 2 Rangeela.
Loving cats is a change for her, as Athiya and her dogs are always high profile in the media…but we won’t hold that against her.
You know what they say about selfies and kitties: it’s impossible not to love them! Jacqueline Fernandez has taken to holding her cat up for the perfect self-portrait, which she posts on social media, much to the delight of her fans and animal lovers everywhere.
Since her first appearances in modeling and then acting, Jacqueline Fernandez has been a self-confessed animal lover. She often posts pictures with all of the pets she owns on social media, and fans can’t help but comment on how cute they are.
Jacqueline is a famous actress, model, and beauty queen. She primarily works in Bollywood films, although she has also featured internationally with English-language roles to her credit. After making her debut film appearance as Princess Jasmine in the live-action version of Aladdin, Jacqueline quickly established herself among Hindi cinema audiences through high-profile releases like Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai.
In 2010, Jacqueline appeared opposite Riteish Deshmukh in the science fiction rom-com Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai. She is cast as a girl from Venus who lands on Earth to find true love and happiness.
Not only does she care about her animals, she cares about others as well. Jacqueline has launched a new initiative called You Only Live Once, promoting the hashtag “#YOLO.” The campaign asks people to donate money to help stray cats and dogs in India who are often left without food or water by their owners, due to economic reasons – a good cause, we would say.
Zarine Khan and Softy
It’s a selfie-perfect day for Zarine Khan! The sun is shining, her cat is in tow, and they are both ready to go out. Zarine Khan spends a lot of time with her cats, but her favorite is named Softy.
The severely malnourished feline was found on the streets by Zarine, who rushed him in for treatment at an animal hospital, where he was eventually brought back to good health. Zarine adopted this cute kitty who now loves playing and raising money for cat charities.
Kalki Koechlin and Dosa
Kalki Koechlin is an actor and adopter who loves Dosa, her cat. When she first adopted the stray, it was not just because she loves cats, but also to save him from being put down. Now a healthy cat with his own Twitter account, he’s become one-of-a-kind in more ways than just looks – this feline bodyguard follows Kalki around even though she has adopted two other cats.
Kalki is going the extra mile for animals, especially those who deserve a voice. The talented actor has been an ambassador and supporter of PETA in India. She saw first-hand how they help people get better care for their pets when trying times arrive – a lesson we all need to be reminded about every now again!
In 2019 Kalki played a French immigrant in Siddharth Sinha’s short film The Job. Produced by Kushal Shrivastava. The directors meant the production to be both psychological and satirical of the corporate culture. Kalkis’ portrayal captured attention from critics who praised her convincing performance, making the film and Kalki an all-around winner!
