Father’s Day 2021: Shah Rukh Khan-Aryan to Saif Ali Khan-Ibrahim, star kids who are carbon copy of their dads

  • There are many Bollywood star kids who bear a close resemblance to their famous fathers. On the occasion of International Father's Day, here's a look at star kids who look like their dads.

The Hindi film industry today boasts of many famous personalities whose kids have either made it big in the industry or are waiting in the wings to be launched. Many like Salman Khan (son of scriptwriter Salim Khan) and Sanjay Dutt (son of Sunil Dutt) have proved their mettle over time, while many others like Kumar Gaurav (son of Rajendra Kumar), fizzled out over time.

Apart from career prospects and talent, there is another factor that is evident in the father-son dynamic that we see in the film industry – and that is the kind of resemblance the star kids bear with their fathers. Not many will recall but the earliest instance would be Shashi Kapoor’s striking resemblance with his illustrious father, Prithviraj Kapoor. Take a look at Shashi in Junoon (1978) and Prithviraj in Sikandar (1941) and you will get an idea.

On the occasion of International Father’s Day on Sunday, here’s a look at some father-son combination where the resemblance is very close.

Shah Rukh Khan-Aryan Khan
