Bollywood celebrities rarely have time to indulge in anything other than shooting, promotion and their family. But there happens to be others in their lives who demand their attention, others who stand by them through thick or thin - their beloved pets. This week, as BollyCurry celebrates the Pushkar Camel Fair, we bring to you a special article on the celebrities of Tinsel Town and their special pets.

Shah Rukh Khan is pretty well known for his generosity and love for pets. Khan now owns not one or two but a total of four dogs, all of different breeds. While Dash is a Japanese Chin, Hulk is a Labrador and joining them there are two Maltese dogs - Kai and Juicy. SRK has often reported that he enjoys talking to the four dogs rather than humans when he is depressed.

Returning to our screens as a fit dance judge, Shilpa Shetty has two Persian cats and one Pekingese dog who is named after a celebratory beverage - Champagne. The cute little dog is a little fluff ball and all sorts of adorable. Not much is known of the Persian cats, who are new additions to her little family. 

During the shoot at Wai for Malamaal Weekly 2, Shreyas Talpade befriended a stray dog who he named Mankoo. Mankoo was so in love with this Bollywood celebrity that he wouldn't eat food from anyone else but Talpade himself. At home, the actor has Don and Knight, Labrador in breed and as friendly as Talpade himself.

Marlon Brando of The Godfather fame inspired Priyanka Chopra so much so that she named her cocker spaniel after him - Brando. Chopra is famously known to being afraid of cats, horrified being the more correct use of term, but Brando is a pet she is close to and adores wholeheartedly.

The great Amitabh Bachchan has The Great Dane as his pet, creatively named Shanouk. Shanouk is a huge, brown dog with black spotting near the eyes. Big B is smitten over his pet until his granddaughter, Aaradhya Bachchan, entered the Jalsa mansion. It is said that Shanouk has been feeling "left out" since Beti B made an appearance. 

The eligible bachelor is one celebrity who maintains a dog blog after falling in love with his bullmastiffs Myson and Myjaan. The two dogs have passed away since then and Salman has replaced them with two others; Myson -  named after his first ever pet - and Mylove. The names are surely unusual and quirky but so is the actor himself. 

The beautiful Koena Mitra is a happy lady with eight happy dogs. She little pet family consists of seven female dogs; Jiggy, Sushi, Cookie, Missy, Fluffy, Jerry, Bella and only one male dog, Dude. They all vary in breeds and sizes from Pekingese to poodles and terriers.

Other celebrities who are also fond of animals are: Celina Jaitley, Tushhar Kapoor, Fardeen Khan, Gul Panag amongst many more.

They say pets are a man's best friend. Do you agree? Maybe you have pets of your own? We'd like to hear from you on which animal you have or would like have one day.

I have 2 cats - Bushky and Guddu.. Bushky is old and lazy while Guddu is sweet and naughty. We call him Rowdy as he always bosses over Bushky. It is fun to watch when he is caught in the act of bossing Bushky.
