Fame is something that can instantly get to one’s head and transform that person forever. We all must have heard about a cocky celebrity once in a while but today we are talking about the most down to earth celebrities in India.
We’ve curated a list of the most down to earth celebrities in India who are renowned for their humility and leading a simple life:

Who doesn’t know ‘Captain Cool’ and his tales of kindness! From agreeing to take a selfie with a girl who followed his car to choosing a train ride over luxurious plane travel, MSD has been in the news for his humility. A fun activity for you: try checking out all the group photographs of India winning any major tournament and you’ll see that MSD never held the trophies in any group photographs.

Standing true to his song, “Jo main cha hu, wo main pau’, Shah Rukh Khan is the star who would have anything available at his doorstep. Yet the humility with which he treats his fans and even the journalist who interviews him is beyond words. If you would ever notice him stepping on the stage of any award show, he never forgets to offer ‘salaam’ to everyone.

Throughout the pandemic, he has been constantly planning to provide transportation and aid for many more. He truly went the extra mile to provide help.
