Say cheese, to these Bollywood stars
Usually, they enjoy all the attention in front of the camera. For a change, they like going behind it, too. For instance, tough man Sunny Deol surprised his fans by revealing a new-found passion for photography during the recent shoots of his upcoming film Mohalla Assi.
