Bollywood is famous for its star dynasties, with many celebrity families currently launching their third generation in the industry. History has proven that star kids and those who come from film backgrounds are more likely to breeze through and bag lead roles, than those who don’t have any film connection. Call it nepotism, favouritism or otherwise. However, how they perform after their big launch is what makes the difference. While we have A-listers like Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor on the one side, who have made use of their big launches to establish their names in the industry, independent of their families, we also have star kids like Sikhander Kher, Mimoh Chakravarty or Adhyayan Suman, who have never been able to make a mark in the industry, prove that connections are not everything you need lots of talent, and luck, too.
This year will again see a number of star kids make their debut in big budget productions. Whether they make it big or not, only time, and their films will tell. We take a look at the latest Bollywood kids on the block.
