Bollywood has had a huge role to play in the steady rise of sport in India. The actors and actresses have made it a point to make their presence felt in various sports such as football, cricket and kabaddi, to name a few.

Stars such as Ranbir Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan have also gone one step further and bought shares of teams which participate in sporting leagues. Not only this, some of them have even played the sport themselves!

It's only fair that the superstars get a few well-deserved breaks from their hectic shooting schedule, and what better way to do that than indulging in the sport they love? Here are 5 Bollywood superstars who have also played sports at bigger levels than just their local neighbourhood or home.

Taapsee rose to fame after her spectacular performance in 'Pink', and the actress is not one to shy away from sharing her fitness routine. The 'Ghazi Attack' actress has openly admitted that she loves playing squash and believes that 40-45 minutes of squash time get her into better shape than hitting the gym.

Recently, Saqib Saleem admitted to being beaten black and blue by Taapsee in a game of squash and added that she was really good at the sport. There have also been reports that she and Varun Dhawan consistently met up for a round or two of squash while shooting for their movie 'Judwaa 2'.
