Bollywood actors are often asked what they would be if they weren't actors. And the answers are truly surprising. With bankers, musicians and dancers getting screentime, Bollywood has embraced people from different industries. But when it comes to the actors listed here, we are sure they would have been the Rumi's of our time, if not brilliant performers! So, take a look at their soulful words and let these low-key Bollywood poets heal your hearts!
Hrithik Roshan recently came out of the poetry closet. He released a new video of his poem which went viral and for all the right reasons!
Kalki has performed spoken word poetry and you might just have heard of her famous poems like The Printing Machine and Noise. Her words are harsh, true and inspirational.
You’ll be the one to walk the path Strewn with broken ambition Of warriors who turned back home Fearing death or submission Dark clouds loom overhead Blood dripping in their fall A sliver of hope is hope enough For you to give your all Reach for the stars. #musiclove #farhanlive #keepexploring Image: @zubinsoni
How could we not have Farhan on this list? Even before his ZNMD poems, he has been known for weaving magic with his words, just like his father Javed Akhtar.
The Delhi boy is often seen posting his poetry on his social media. He turns random everyday moments into poems and we love it!
This one is kind of a shocker! But Vidya Balan loves her shayari. However, it is only for a selected audience that she actually opens that book. Here is hoping she shares some with us soon.
Check out Arunodaya Singh's Instagram account and you will know what we're talking about. He has recently been very active with the written word and honestly, we can't complain.
Ali Zafar is the chocolate boy we've always needed. He is a singer, actor and even a poet - a complete package!
Let me count the ways I love you..

Mrs Funnybones writes short poems that usually leave us chuckling, thanks to her always on-point humour. But sometimes she also writes cute two-liners like this one for her daughter!
It doesn't come as a surprise that Harivansh Rai Bachchan's son and superstar Amitabh Bachchan finds solace in words. Like father, like son, eh?
