An actor’s child becomes an actor, doctors a doctor, engineer’s an engineer and flop actor’s a flop actor. This is the perception of the society we are living in! It’s your talent and a bit a luck that takes you to the top. Proving it true, here are some star actors from the Bollywood whose parents didn’t get the success as much as they did and became superstars.
1) Alia Bhatt
Number 1 in the list is Alia Bhat. Talking about Alia Bhatt’s family, although her all family is into the showbiz business but even then there was no star in the family who ever enjoyed the kind of star quality that Alia does. The fact that this 24-year-old was launched by Karan Johar in Student of the Year definitely played a part in it. But she has proven her mettle in every other film she has been a part of in her six-year career streak.
2) Hrithik Roshan
Hrithik Roshan’s father Rajesh Roshan is undoubtedly a successful director but he was never the successful actor. On the other hand, Hrithik not only possesses great looks but is also a superstar.
3) Karisma and Kareena Kapoor
The Kapoor sisters unlike their star parents, Randhir and Babita have had successful film careers. Indubitably, Kareena has surpassed even her older sister Karisma when it comes to superstardom, but it was Karisma who paved the way for her in Bollywood.
4) Ajay Devgn
Ajay’s father was a stuntman and action choreographer with almost 80 Hindi films under his belt. He also tried his hand in directing and producing films, but it was his son who gained more popularity by the virtue of becoming an actor.
5) Aamir Khan
Aamir’s father never enjoyed a similar level of success. Tahir Hussain was a producer, actor, writer and director. He acted in three films and directed Aamir in his directorial debut Tum Mere Ho in 1990.
6) Shahid Kapoor
It will be unfair to compare Shahid with his father’s immense acting talent, but he is a bigger star than Pankaj Kapur. Even his mother Neelima Azeem was a well-known TV and film actress. But, Shahid is one of the most popular stars in Bollywood today.
7) Shraddha Kapoor
She got immense success than her actor parents mother Shivangi and father Shakti Kapoor.
