In an industry where thousands of people struggle to get a chance, celebrity kids have it easier than the rest. But these celebrity kids are often criticized for their lack of talent, and it’s not exactly true. There are many star kids who have proved their acting skills and versatility by playing some unconventional roles. Here is a list of successful celebrity kids that are present in the industry right now.
1. HRITHIK ROSHAN
Hrithik Roshan is one of the biggest superstars of India. Launched by his father, Rakesh Roshan in Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, Hrithik Roshan went on to become the Greek God of India. His dance steps in ‘Ek Pal Ka Jeena’ have become immortal. Hrithik Roshan never had the attitude of a star kid. With his amazing dance steps, impressive acting skills and humble nature, he has won the hearts of the entire nation. He has proved his versatility through movies like Lakshya, Jodha-Akbar, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Guzaarish and Dhoom 2. He even sang the song ‘Senorita’ in ZNMD, and we fell in love with his voice.
2. RANBIR KAPOOR
Ranbir Kapoor was a known face even before joining Bollywood as he is the son of legendary Rishi Kapoor. We had high expectations, and Ranbir Kapoor met them. He started with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Sawariya. Even though the movie couldn’t do a good business on box office, it didn’t affect Ranbir Kapoor’s glorious career. He acted in Rocket Singh and Rajneeti which showed that he carried a good range as an actor.
But his breakthrough performance was of Jordan in Rockstar. He played the role of a tormented Rockstar and won our hearts. His intense acting still haunts us. In his next movie, Barfi, he played the role of a mute and deaf man. Through his expressive face, he established himself as a successful actor. But no actor has lived in constant stardom. Ranbir Kapoor is facing a low point in career, and we are hoping that he would bounce back with his upcoming movie.
3. KAREENA KAPOOR
When Kareena Kapoor entered into Bollywood, she couldn’t get much chance to showcase her skills despite being a part of some high-budget movies. It was through Jab we Met that Kareena Kapoor proved herself as an actress. She won filmfare for the best actress that year and got in huge demand. She is one of the highest paid actresses of Bollywood right now. With movies like 3 idiots and Talaash, she proved her versatility. Right now, Kareena Kapoor is busy in nailing the fashion game with her glamorous pregnancy pictures and living a fulfilled life with her husband, Saif Ali Khan.
4. ALIA BHATT
Alia Bhatt was launched by Karan Johar. She debuted in Student of the Year, and guys fell for her cute looks. But she could not prove herself with her first movie, as she was labelled as another ‘star kid’ who lacks talent.
She busted these myths through her acting in Highway. She was not only consumed by the character of Veera, but her minimal make-up look in the movie enchanted the viewers. After doing a few glamorous roles, she shut the mouth of her critics through Udta Punjab. Playing the role of a Bihari worker is not easy, but Alia Bhatt nailed the role. She has finally established herself as a successful actor.
5. VARUN DHAWAN
Varun Dhawan debuted alongside Alia Bhatt in Karan Johar’ Student of the Year. His charming looks have swept the girls off their feet. But don’t mistake him for an actor who can only do funny roles. He proved his acting skills in Badlapur. His intense looks and revengeful attitude kept us hooked to the movie. We hope that Varun Dhawan keeps giving us such ground-breaking movies, and proving that he is not just an ‘attractive face’ but much more.
