Today’s star wives are women of substance
Bollywood is mostly ruled by the men and has left little for the female actors to do. Even when it came to their personal lives one thought that their wives are engulfed by their husband’s popularity and have little of their own. However, little does one know that these wives have carved their own careers in different fields and are no less successful than their counterparts. Let us take a look at these famous star wives who are known for their husbands but in reality are successful, independent and hold authority in their lives.
