While many celebrities spend millions of rupees on their opulent residences and swimming pools, many others work as farmers as a second job. Some of them are doing it because they don’t want to lose sight of their roots, but others are doing it because we are compelled to eat stuff that has been chemically treated. The following is a list of famous people who like planting, cultivating, and harvesting grains and vegetables in their farms. These actors started farming, demonstrating that it’s a way of life rather than just a job.
1. R Madhavan
Recently, R Madhavan disclosed that he had purchased a desolate plot of land and transformed it into a lush, verdant coconut orchard. Modern, organic, and traditional indigenous agricultural practises were used to renew the soil over the course of five years, and the results are stunning.
2. Rajesh Kumar
About two years ago, Kumar, who brought us to tears with his brilliant portrayal of Rosesh Sarabhai in the popular TV series Sarabhai VS Sarabhai, started zero-budget spiritual farming to transform Barma into a smart community.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui worked as a farmer before he entered the film industry. He has continued doing what we used to do earlier in life for about 20 years, despite his fame in Bollywood. He tends to the soil on his farms in the UP when he is not acting. He frequently gives glances inside his family’s mustard field.
Dharmendra continues to share glimpses of his farm life with fans on Twitter and Instagram, from feeding animals to cultivating seasonal veggies like tomatoes and broccoli. In reality, he worked on organic gardening during the lockdown.
5. Prakash Raj
About ten years ago, Prakash Raj purchased a couple acres of land to plant trees. He has been cultivating vegetables and grains there for the past five years. He was quoted by TOI as adding, “I have grown more attractive, patient, and serene since taking up farming.”
6. Kangana Ranaut
Recently, Kangana Ranaut said that her mother “grows practically everything one would need in a kitchen” by herself. She stayed in her ancestral house in Manali during the lockdown and assisted her mother with the farm during that period.
7. Jackie Shroff
Between Mumbai and Pune, Jackie Shroff often spends time at his 44,000 square foot property. Additionally, he frequently shares videos on Instagram about his passion for gardening and homegrown produce.
8. Juhi Chawla
Juhi Chawla, who not only likes to farm, also spoke up in favour of farmers after the pandemic had severely affected them. According to reports, she had given the land from her family’s property to the landless farmers so they could grow rice during the season.
“I’ve made the decision to allow landless farmers to farm on our property since we’re on lockdown. This season, we’re allowing them to cultivate rice in exchange for a tiny share of the harvest for themselves “IANS cited her as having said.
“It is an old practise. It’s simply reverting back to the way farming was done decades before, but isn’t that the wiser course of action? Our farmers have a much deeper understanding of the earth, soil, wind, and air than we city dwellers ever will from our study of textbooks “Added she.
9. Shilpa Shetty
She not only cultivates organic vegetables at home, but she also makes it a point to teach her kid how to grow organic fruits and vegetables without the use of artificial fertilisers by taking him to the countryside once a week.
Shilpa Shetty started gardening organically a few years ago.
10. Preity Zinta
Preity Zinta frequently displays the fruits of her organic farming. Fresh tomatoes and peppers are grown by the actress. She claims that her mother taught her how to cultivate veggies at home, and she is very appreciative of her.
Ghar ki kheti 🤩 How awesome to grow our own vegetables at home. Thank you Ma 🙏 for teaching me & for inspiring me to grow our own vegetables. I’m on top of the world right now, yet I’ve never felt so close to Mother Earth ❤️ #Jaimatadi #organicgardening #shimlamirchi #Ting pic.twitter.com/IkAE26Go5C— Preity G Zinta (@realpreityzinta) July 30, 2020
11. Salman Khan
Salman Khan was spotted at his Panvel farmhouse engaging in activities that made him happy and at ease. He was spotted toiling in the fields of paddy. During the lockdown, he could be seen embracing farming as he worked in the fields, rode a tractor, and cut the produce.
