Celebrities now indulge in their passions for cuisine, drink, and fashion outside of the arena of lights and cameras. Many of them constantly promote their totally or partially owned enterprises in these industries on their social media accounts. Some of them have started investing in sports like cricket, badminton, football, and even kabaddi in recent years.

The distinction between sports and entertainment has been fuzzier as athletes make appearances at stadiums and more athletes appear in advertising. Bollywood and sports go beyond only romantic entanglements, and some of the biggest Hindi cinema stars have made significant financial investments and fielded their own teams. Bollywood's biggest stars have supported some of India's favourite games.

Here is a list of famous people who own sports franchises.
