Bollywood celebrities have always been in the spotlight for their unlimited fan base, constant paparazzi stares and frenzied fans, sometimes their parents and siblings are familiar with the media and fans, but most of them they avoid attention.

Tiger Shroff’s sister Krishna Shroff is passionate about fitness and runs her own fitness centers.
