Today with the abundance of talented actresses that are there in the industry, it comes as no surprise that they can wear more than one cap.
Some of the A-leisters today are extremely successful entrepreneurs too. Other than entertaining their fans with their diverse roles in a different genre of films, there are businesses run by these wonderful women. These actresses are unstoppable and have turned out to be successful entrepreneurs. It is no small task to be so successful in a world where women are often asked to step down because of their gender. Let us list 10 B-Town actresses who established their businesses and have proved themselves to be excellent entrepreneurs:
