We all love the idea of watching a street performance. Street performance or busking is quite popular in many cultures although it’s not common in India. Buskers usually entertain a crowd in exchange for gratuities. Their performances can vary. In fact, it can be anything that attracts a crowd like acrobatics, clowning, fire skills, dance and musical performances, street art and so on. But, did you know that some of your favourite celebs started their career as buskers? Let’s find out.
