Bollywood Stars Who Surpassed Their Parents Stardom
Bollywood stars who despite growing up in not-so-successful ambience, could dream big and make it to the top. Though there is a common belief that one with filmy background gets stardom or celebrity-hood served on a golden platter.
But, there are a few who have upstaged their parents when it comes to proper stardom. Here are them.
Shahid Kapoor and Neelima Azeem
Shahid is one of the most popular stars in Bollywood today. Even his mother Neelima Azeem was a well-known TV and film actress.
Aamir Khan and Tahir Hussain
Aamir Khan is one of the bollywood star. Aamir Khan also has a filmy background. His father, Tahir Hussain was also a producer, actor, writer and director. But his father never enjoyed a similar level of success.
Hrithik Roshan and Rakesh Roshan
Hrithik Roshan from his very first movie, Kaho Naa Pyar Hai, proved that he is going to be one amongst the many A-list actors of Bollywood. His father, Rakesh Roshan’s acting career could never really fare well, and later he turned to directing and producing movies.
Shraddha Kapoor and Shakti Kapoor
The Aashiqui 2 girl took the movie world by storm when she essayed the titular role of Aarohi. Her innocent looks, charming screen presence and acting skills left the audience swooning over her, creating a huge fan base. What followed was an extensive search of the details about this debutant heroine, and people were surprised to know that she is none other than Bollywood villain Shakti Kapoor’s lovely daughter. Her father, however, could never get any substantial lead roles and all throughout essayed negative characters. Compared to him, Shraddha has earned a significant amount of name and fame in the industry.
Salman Khan and Salim Khan
Salim Khan debuted as an actor when director K. Amarnath spotted him for his good looks at a wedding. For nearly seven years, Salim acted in supporting roles in various movies. But Salim’s eldest son Salman proved to be a lucky chap from his debut movie, Maine Pyaar Kiya. Today, he is one of the most commercially successful actors of Hindi cinema, and the only actor to act in the highest-grossing Bollywood films.
Kareena Kapoor and Babita
Although Babita was known for her good looks and style quotient, the actress did not have a very promising career graph. Kareena had acting in her genes, but she added her own mettle to create her niche and turned in to be one of the highest paid actresses, and innumerable accolades adorn her kitty.
Alia Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt
Alia comes from the Bhatt family. Her father is filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, her mother is actress Soni Razdan, and she is actress Pooja Bhatt’s half-sister. Neither Mahesh Bhatt, who was an acclaimed filmmaker, nor Soni Razdan or even Pooja Bhatt ever enjoyed the kind of star quality that Alia does.
