Every year in bollywood many new talent comes. Some of them get success and some of them get nothing. In the same way every year many Star kids comes in bollywood. These star kids gets best opportunity to get the stardom but some of them can’t impress the audience and failed.
We listed 15 Star kids who get many chance to make their name in bollywood, but they failed.
1. Arya Babbar Son of Raj Babbar
Raj Babbar’s kids, Arya and Juhi failed to make it big unlike their brother Prateik. Juhi did a couple of films in Hindi and Punjabi, while Aarya has made appearances in well-known films like ‘Guru’ (2007), ‘Tees Maar Khan’ (2010) and ‘Ready’ (2011) but both their careers simply did not take off.
While Aarya can still be seen in movies off and on, both the Babbar kids seem to have accepted their regretable Bollywood fate.
2. Adhyayan Suman Son of Shekher Suman
Bollywood and famed television actor Shekhar Suman’s son, Adhyayan debuted in 2008 with ‘Haal-E-Dil’ and went on to appear in a handful of other films – none of which succeeded in solidifying his hold on the Indian audience.
More recently one reason he’s been back on the radar was owing to a controversy his ex and now massively successful actress, Kangana Ranaut was in – no thanks to his dying acting career.
3. Jackky Bhagnani son of Indian producer Vashu Bhagnani
Son of producer Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky tried his luck in Bollywood with ‘Kal Kissne Dekha’ in 2009 but the 2011 moderate success ‘F.A.L.T.U’ was his only shining moment.
More recently we saw him in films like ‘Youngistaan’ and ‘Welcome to Karachi’ – none of which seemed to click with movie-goers anywhere.
4. Kumar Gaurav Son of Rajendra Kumar
Actor Rajendra Kumar’s son, Kumar Gaurav started out strong with ‘Love Story’ (1981) but its blockbuster status did not manage to make him a lasting star.
Not many remember Kumar’s other films, though we continued to see him in films until 2002’s Kaante. It wasn’t long until he was almost entirely forgotten.
5. Rahul Khanna Son of Vinod Khanna
Rahul Khanna was born and raised in Mumbai. His father is Bollywood star & politician, Vinod Khanna, his mother is ex-model Gitanjali Taleyarkhan, and his younger brother is Bollywood actor, Akshaye Khanna.
He made his feature film debut in Deepa Mehta’s 1947 Earth, alongside Aamir Khan. But he couldn’t continue the his charisma in bollywood.
6. Luv Sinha Son of Shatrughan Sinha
Shatrughan Sinha has given Bollywood a star in Sonakshi Sinha, but his son Luv didn’t have the same luck. He acted in a 2010 movie called ‘Sadiyan’, which turned out to be his first and last movie.
I suppose Shatrughan -Shotgun- Sinha’s heir does come with great expectations, and Luv simply wasn’t able to live up to them.
7. Mahaakshay Chakraborty Son of Mithun Chakraborty
Son of the legendary ‘Disco Dancer’ himself, Mimoh debuted in ‘Jimmy’ (2008) and let it suffice to say that it was basically all downhill from there.
He’s done films I can count on one hand’s fingers and let’s face it, the world expected a lot more from superstar Mithun Chakraborty’s son.
8. Fardeen Khan Son of Firoz Khan
The son of famed Firoz Khan, Fardeen started out with 1998’s ‘Prem Aggan’ and we all know how that went. *cough* Pretentious Movie Reviews *cough* And even though he didn’t give up, we almost feel like he should have.
Films like ‘Jungle’ (2000) and ‘Pyar Tune Kya Kiya’ (2001) were interesting, but clearly they weren’t enough to put him in the big leagues.
9. Esha Deol Daughter of Hema Malini
Hema Malini and Dharmendra’s daughter started out with ‘Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe’ in 2002 which was followed by a series of regretable releases that did nothing but take her career to its slow and painful death.
Admittedly, Esha was around for a lot longer (from 2002 to 2011), but I don’t reckon anyone out there can dispute her status as a star kid who failed to dazzle the audiences.
10. Shadab Khan son of Amjad Khan
Shadaab, Amjad Khan’s son, made a decently successful ‘Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat’ but it was obviously all downhill from there ’cause we haven’t heard from him in years.
He started out out paired with Rani Mukherjee, and while she went on to do bigger and better things, Gabbar’s son never quite made it big.
11. Harman Baweja Son of Harry Baweja
Director Harry Baweja’s son Harman had a lot of hype surrounding him and his Hrithik-like manner before the release of his debut ‘Love Story 2050’. But that, along with the rest of his 6 films were colossal failures.
He not only started out opposite a diva like Priyanka Chopra, 2 out of his 6 films were with her. And yet, it doesn’t look like any of her star power or even sheer luck rubbed off on Harman.
12. Sikandar Kher Son of Kirron Kher & Anupam Kher
Anupam Kher’s son Sikander’s debut ‘Woodstock Villa’ (2008) and the five films that followed failed to wow the masses and the critics alike for the most part.
Anupam Kher and Kirron Kher may be serious Bollywood veterans now, but their son Sikander Kher evidently did not inherit their understanding of cinema.
13. Raima Sen Daughter of Moon Moom Sen
She is the daughter of Moon Moon Sen and Bharat Dev Barma and the granddaughter of actress Suchitra Sen.Her sister Riya Sen is also in the Bollywood industry.
Sen made her debut in the film Godmother, which was a critically acclaimed success, but her minor role could not attract audience.
14. Tanishaa Mukerji Daughter of Tanuja
Famed actress Tanuja’s daughter and Kajol’s sister, Tanishaa sure had high hopes pinned to her when she made her debut as a Bollywood leading lady in 2005’s ‘Neal n Nikki’. But now she’s all but a former Bigg Boss contestant some of us remember somewhat.
Apart from smaller roles in films like Sarkar and Tango Charlie, Mukerji wasn’t able to make her mark quite like her elder sister did. In her defence, though, she had a superstar’s massive shoes to fill.
15 . Uday Chopra Son of Yash Chopra
After a few unimpressive performances, it was obvious that the audience didn’t quite take to Yash Chopra’s son as well as his famed khandaan had probably hoped.
After having worked as an assistant director for a long time, Junior Chopra, one would think, should have had as easy a ride into Bollywood as it gets. But between his debut in ‘Mohabbatein’ (2000) and his last appearance in ‘Dhoom 3’ (2013), we only saw him in a handful of films and regretfully not many of them were worth remembering.
They say Bollywood is easier if you have a star parent, but what they don’t consider is how much tougher it gets because you have a superstar parent to live up to. And these star kids couldn’t, alas. May their Bollywood dreams rest in peace.
