10 Bollywood celebs that went from being rich to poor

Bollywood is a tough world. It is a dicey one too. There are instances when a newbie has turned into a star overnight with just one hit movie. Also, there are examples when a superstar or a film producer has come on roads with a flop movie. We have always been fascinated with the glamorous world and have always heard about the rags to riches stories. But everyone is that fortunate. There are many Bollywood celebrities who were flocked by fans, media and Bollywood fraternity in their success days but were left alone and were gradually faded into oblivion in their last days. Here is a list of Bollywood celebrities who turned from riches to rags and witnessed the infinite depths of darkness.

The sex-symbol of the 70s and 80s, Parveen Babi graced the cover of Time magazine and had several hit movies to her credit. Known for her bold and bohemian looks, the actress developed paranoid schizophrenia and accused several popular personalities like Amitabh Bachchan and Bill Clinton to try to kill her.

Unfortunately, no one came forward to claim her body for two days. Later, Mahesh Bhatt performed her last rites.
