There’s a reason why fans are so obsessed with the lives of Bollywood celebrities. They see them on-screen regularly, relate to their characters, and find glimpses of their personal lives on social media and hence, it’s no surprise that they are often inspired by them. Several fans aspire to be like them, or at least, pick up few traits from them.
But what if your favourite Bollywood celebrities weren’t in the film industry? What if they had chosen sports as their career? Well, here’s guessing what sports they would have played if sports were their passion and profession.
Shah Rukh Khan – Cricket
It’s no news that Bollywood’s King Khan loves cricket. The actor is often in the news for his tweets on cricket matches. SRK is also a proud owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, one of the most successful teams in IPL. One look at his social media account during match days, and you’d know that he follows the season ardently.
Ranbir Kapoor – Football
An actor by profession, Ranbir is also fond of football. Even amid the pandemic, the actor was snapped keeping up with his football matches in Mumbai. Sporting jersey no 8, Ranbir would have made quite a stylish player.
Deepika Padukone – Badminton
Daughter of ace badminton player Prakash Padukone, it’s no surprise that Deepika, too, is an exceptional badminton player. The actress has often talked about her love for the game and has often been seen cheering for her dad on social media.
Parineeti Chopra – Badminton
Stepping in the shoes of badminton player Saina Nehwal for her biopic Saina is Parineeti Chopra. By now, the actress has grasped the basics of the game and her BTS photos are proof that she’s also enjoying it to the core.
Aamir Khan – Tennis
Not many know that Aamir loved to play lawn tennis during his school days. The actor had also represented his school in several championships back then.
Randeep Hooda – Horse riding

Farhan Akhtar – Athletics
Remember Bhaag Milkha Bhaag? Farhan had played the role of Milkha Singh with sheer perfection and one can imagine that he might just be that good as a sprinter in real life too.
There’s been an inherent connection linking Bollywood and sports for years. From sports-based films to biopics of sportspersons, it’s therefore not hard to imagine stars being sportspersons at all!
