Bollywood stars do things in style. And if you think that using sophisticated gadgets is limited only to the reel-life, then you are wrong. Our very own Bollywood celebrities are highly tech-savy and roam around with the latest gadgets in company. Here, we take a look down at the gadgets famous in B-Town.
The Apple iPad is a sure-shot winner when it comes to deciding the most famous gadget here. Almost everyone, from Abhishek Bachchan to Ajay Devgan flaunt it proudly. Infact, Abhishek Bachchan was the first one to obtain an iPad, gifted to him by his sister, Shweta Nanda even before the iPad was available at the Indian markets. Mr.Amitabh Bachchan had blogged about the same – “He (Abhishek) has spent the entire day sorting out this rather sleek-looking gadget and I dare say it is indeed a marvellous piece of equipment.”
Other Celebrities who own an iPad, or rather, were snapped sporting one are Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, AR Rehman, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Ajay Devgan, Priyanka Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan (he even compares it to a ‘nagging elder’) and Imran Khan. The other Khans own a tablet but of different makes. Aamir Khan got himself a Samsung one while Salman Khan enjoys playing on his Blackberry Playbook.
Apart from the iPad, the iPhone is another must-have among Bollywood celebrities. From Imran Khan to Gul Panag, everyone sports one and take pride in being an owner. Sanjay Dutt, along with Salman Khan are avid Blackberry loyalists. It was Sanjay Dutt who persuaded Ajay Devgan to switch over to Blackberry as his primary mobile device.
It may come as a huge surprise for Sunny Deol’s fans that the actor is a huge fan of camcorders and digital cameras. Sunnny Deol has been passionate about photography right from his childhood days and has got a huge impressive collection of photographs taken over the years. He owns a professional camera and not the one that works on the simple, easy to handle single lens reflex.
Nikhil Dwivedi is so obsessed with collecting antique cameras that the actor does not mind burning a hole in his pocket. Dwivedi recently purchased a 100 year-old antique 1911 model Remington Ensign-Special Reflex camera. The camera is the oldest in his collection of 14 antique cameras.
Priyanka Chopra loves taking photographs too and owns a Nikon D 90. She has it all when it comes to gadgets, including an E 7 Communicator, Nokia N- 8, Mac Book Pro and an iPad. Saif Ali Khan’s sister Soha Ali Khan recently got herself a Kindle. Being an avid reader, Soha now has over 3000 books on her Kindle.
