Star Kids: The Current Generation

Being a star kid comes with two sides: on one hand, your entry into films is easier because you’ve got all the right connections. On the other hand, being held to lofty expectations and being constantly compared to your family can take quite the toll. Either way, many star kids have found their place in the industry, and quite a few are now considered to be among the top. But what about the current generation of star kids? These growing guys and girls have the filmy connections, but only time will tell whether they’ll follow in their family’s footsteps. Who do you think has the potential to make it big in Bollywood?

1) Junaid Khan, Aamir Khan’s son

Word has it that Junaid is going to be assistant director to Rajkumar Hirani for Peekay – which means that he’ll actually get the opportunity to direct his own dad! It seems like Junaid’s ready to make his foray into films behind the camera, but we wonder if we’ll get to see him on screen anytime soon. He is quite good looking!

2) Jahnvi Kapoor, Sridevi’s daughter

Jahnvi seems to have inherited her mother’s flawlessness (ah, what it must feel like to have Sridevi‘s genes in you) and sense of style. I think Jahnvi is pure heroine material (though her acting talent is yet to be seen), but unfortunately it looks like Sridevi isn’t all too keen she join the industry.

3) Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan’s son

Actually, Aryan already has acted in a film – he played a younger Shah Rukh Khan in the opening credits of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Whether he decides to follow in his father’s footsteps is yet to be known, but I bet there’d be a long line of producers and directors waiting, should Aryan ever decide he wants to get into the industry.

4) Sara Ali Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter

Sara had recently posed for a magazine cover with mom Amrita, but whether her ambitions stretch beyond that is yet to be seen! She’s got the acting genes from both her parents, so we’d love to see her on screen sometime!

5) Anmol Thakeria, Poonam Dhillon’s son

Now this is one guy you most likely will see on screen. Anmol has expressed his desire to become an actor, though his family has instructed him that he has to finish his education first. Once that’s done, Anmol will probably concentrate more on his acting career – he’s apparently a great dancer, and a big fan of Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor.

6) Athiya Shetty, Suniel Shetty’s daughter

There was news doing the rounds recently that Suniel Shetty is planning on launching daughter Athiya into the industry. Word has it he’s been in talks with Ranbir Kapoor for a film, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens with this lady’s career!

7) Ishaan Khattar, Shahid Kapoor’s brother

Ishaan Khattar Neelima Azmi‘s son – is an avid dancer himself, so it looks like he’s following in bro Shahid Kapoor’s footsteps. Plus, he’s a pretty good looking lad and is apparently already interested in fitness, so he may just have what it takes to make it in Bollywood.

Which of these Bollywood star kids would you like to see on the big screen?
