We often think about our Bollywood actors - can they really do any stunts or is it all the stuntman behind the scenes? Bollywood is a dynamic industry where one has to be glamorous and up to date all the time. But who are the real heroes in our Bollywood? Of course, some actors support NGOs or make sizeable donations to various causes. But today we’ll tell you about actors who can be considered real life heroes!

They also made sure that the man received attention and care rightaway.
Anushka Sharma saved everyone on the set of NH-10 from a major accident. It was a dusty stormy day, since the team decided to avoid the dusty winds and continue with shooting, a heavy prop-moon was suspended 150 feet in air with the help of crane for a scene. The scene required the actress to drive her car towards the camera. As soon she saw the moon box, she noticed that the skimmer holding the moon box had torn and 900 kilos of lights were just looming over the crew. She quickly told everyone to be aside and the place was evacuated instantly. Anushka literally saved the crew this time!
