While celebrities are worshipped and scrutinised around the globe, they are hated and loved to the extremes in India. If there are two things that Indians absolutely love, it’s cricket and cinema. There have been reports of celebrities having their own temples which have been installed by fans and posters of stars being showered with litres of milk. However, before they became who they are today, many Indian celebrities had completely regular jobs. Take a look.

1. Parineeti Chopra was a marketing intern at Yash Raj Films before she snagged her first role in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl.
