Waiting for your favourite Bollywood stars to officially launch their kids into the spotlight? Look around... the next generation of stars is already out there making their presence felt in the industry. Taking the route much travelled, these youngsters are active on all forms of social media as it has emerged to be the most popular form of building a fanbase. From Instagram to Twitter to Facebook, these young guns already have thousands of followers and they aren’t shy of letting everyone know that they are ready to embrace the world of glamour.
From Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan to Sridevi’s daughters Jhanvi and Khushi, we bring to you the gen-next, who could very well be the next superstars. All of them, be it filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliya Kashyap or Govinda’s son Yashvardhan, seem very well equipped to enter the film world.
HT City celebrates its 16th anniversary this week, and we decided to give you a peek into the names that are ruling the social platforms.
Daughter of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and his ex-wife Aarti Bajaj, this 14-year-old is papa’s princess! She often posts adorable pictures with her dad. However, more than a future filmmaker, we see her in front of the camera.
Sara and Ibrahim Khan
Actor Saif Ali Khan and his former wife Amrita Singh’s children are already on their way to filmdom. While 14-year-old Ibrahim looks like a charming actor-to-be, Sara, 22, is already as graceful as her mother.
After actor Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff’s son Tiger, it’s daughter Krishna’s turn to shine. A pro basketball coach, the young lady would make for an exciting addition to the industry, thanks to her style sense and passion for cinema.
Navya Naveli Nanda
Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan’s grand-daughter Navya Naveli Nanda is making heads turn with her grace. With a legacy like that, she is likely to make it big in films! Wait for the announcements.
Actor Govinda ruled the silver screen with his energetic comic performances and his son Yashvardhan is said to be waiting for the right opportunity to make his debut. Look closely and you will find a lot of similarities with Ranbir Kapoor. Let’s hope the similarities do not end just at looks.
Jhanvi and Khushi Kapoor
Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughters Jhanvi and Khushi Kapoor have always been active on the red carpet. While rumours of Jhanvi, 18, making her debut film in the southern film industry have gathered steam, Khushi, 15, still has some time to go. Meanwhile, no official statement has been given so far as to when Jhanvi’s project will take place.
Actor Sunny Deol’s elder son Karan is already working on his father’s projects. It was said that Sunny would helm his son’s Bollywood project. It would be interesting to see Karan on the silver screen.
Suhana and Aaryan
The most sought-after star kids, actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan, 18, and daughter Suhana, 15, are often seen shying away from the paparazzi. However, now Aryan is making more social appearances than before.
When someone’s father is known as Mr. Perfectionist, his son is bound to have some similar qualities. Actor Aamir Khan’s 22-year-old son Junaid takes keen interest in films and his father’s work.
Actor Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya already made her Bollywood debut with Hero but buzz is that his son Aahan, 19, would also be launched by actor Salman Khan soon. True or not, we are sure Sunil’s children will make him proud in Bollywood.
Actor Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s son Aarav is all of 13, but he already has a huge fan following. Just like his father, Aarav, too, is learning martial arts and is very active in sports. We can’t wait for this young lad to make his big debut!
With actor Salman Khan as his uncle, we know that actor Sohail Khan’s son Nirvaan has acting in his genes. Nirvaan’s recent dubsmash video on one of Shah Rukh Khan’s famous tracks got him a lot of attention.
Anil Kapoor’s son is ready for the big debut. Harshvardhan is undoubtedly one of the best fresh faces to look forward to in 2016 and he’s being launched by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra in his next.
