Everyone loves photography but very few people make it their profession. But in Bollywood, certain actors who are at their best in front of cameras turn out to be not so bad behind the cameras too.

On the occasion of World Photography Day, meet the actors who love the art of photography, or have practised it professionally.

Boman Irani

From 1987 onwards, before his Bollywood debut, Boman Irani was a professional photographer. The actor still likes taking a shot or two with his DSLR on the sets of his films, though the pictures are for his memory only. He also has his own photography website, www.bomanirani.com .

Aamir Khan

Perhaps in revenge for the cameras of the paparazzi, Aamir Khan does a fair bit with a camera himself. In 2013, Alia Bhatt posed for Aamir Khan at Deepika Padukone's birthday bash.

Varun Dhawan

Given any opportunity, Varun Dhawan picks up his camera for a shot or two, sometimes even copying the paparazzi and shooting celebs on red carpets. At the Finding Fanny success party, Varun turned photographer for Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor.

Bipasha Basu

Shah Rukh Khan & Salman Khan
