Shilpa Shetty may have bid adieu to her Bollywood career but she has certainly found success in her other role as an entrepreneur. While she takes interest in her IPL team Rajasthan Royals owned by hubby Raj Kundra, the actress is also the owner of a spa and wellness chain called Iosis. And boy has this business worked in her favour or what! Besides Mumbai, the spa also has its presence in tier-II and tier-III cities too.
After proving herself as an actress, Preity Zinta wowed us further when she decided to co-own the IPL team, Kings XI Punjab with Ness Wadia. From cheering her team to giving them pep talks before a match, Zinta is a huge source of support to her cricketers. She takes the franchise as her baby and is deeply involved in almost every decision-making process– a big reason why the players too respect her to the core. Attagirl!
