We have lined up 21 awesome Bollywood fan art from four artists. Why Bollywood fan art and what’s special about it?
Bollywood fans are crazy and fanatical. Their craziness for their hero or heroine is complete. There are plenty of examples of what people can do for their idols. Fans of Rajnikanth pour milk on his cutouts and posters as a form of reverence. This is such a special gesture because the practice of pouring milk is reserved only for Hindu deities!
Bollywood fans transcend boundaries. Bollywood is not confined to just India and Indians, it belongs to the world. We have fanatical fans of Bollywood fans in places such as Chile, Peru and other South American countries. We even have European fans! Of course, wherever there is large settlement of Indians (US, UK, Australia), Bollywood is not far behind. Check out this Shah Rukh Khan fan page from Peru.
As you can see there is no shortage of passion for matinee idols. One of channeling this passion is through art. We combed Behance and Tumblr to pick out four amazing illustrators and artists that have created captivating Bollywood fan art. Please check out their work and support them.
