Unconventional Insurance Coverage Of Indian Celebrities
You may have gone for a life insurance policy in order to ensure the future financial security of your loved ones. You may even have chosen an accidental insurance rider or other add-ons. But for our beloved Indian celebrities, the sky is the limit for insurance! What happens if your income is dependent on your limbs, face, voice, or physique? Did you know that insurance can be purchased for the same as well? We’re not kidding! Here’s taking a look at the unique insurance coverage plans of many of our Indian celebrities.
Why is Insurance Important?
Insurance is essential to cover the financial risk that any misfortune poses. For example, it can be an accident that leaves you disabled or the loss of the primary breadwinner due to a critical illness. It can even cover the loss incurred due to theft, medical bills, damage to a vehicle, etc. To cover all these events, there are specific insurance policies. For example, the loss of life is covered by life insurance, meaning that the family of the policyholder gets financial support if they die during the policy tenure.
