Celebrities are known to earn loads of money. Not only do they act in the movies but Bollywood industry has opened multiple doors for its inhabitants to earn. While some take it through advertising, brand campaigns, cameos or even modelling, many also open up parallel production houses to make sure that their bank accounts are constantly bombarded with credits. However, even when it is their profession and the right to earn what they are good at, Bollywood celebrities do not let friendships and morals take a backseat. Sometimes they take projects and roles out of respect and friendships and do not let money be the sole motivation behind them.

You will be surprised to know these big projects that these 10 Bollywood celebrities did not charge even a single penny for.

1. Shah Rukh Khan For Bhoothnaath And Bhoothnaath Returns

This is, in fact, one of the best examples of being humble and modest! Deepika was launched with her debut movie Om Shanti Om and the actress did not take a paycheck for her role as she considered her kick-starting role in Bollywood as more than enough for her.
