Their mommies and daddies ruled the BO not too long ago. And now, it’s the turn of the bacchas.
A new generation of glamour girls with starry lineage is ready to hit Bollywood and perhaps, prove that it can carry the weight of famous surnames.
Power puff girls The list is quite impressive. Ahana Deol, second daughter of Dharmendra and Hema Malini has decided to tread a different path and launch her maiden directorial venture by early 2007.
Zoya Akhtar, daughter of lyricist/ poet Javed Akhtar and story writer Honey Irani, and sister of Farhan Akhtar will make her directorial de but with Love Story (working title) starring Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor.
Unlike these two, Sonam Kapoor (Anil Kapoor’s daughter) and Sanaa Pancholi (Aditya Pancholi-Zareena Wahab’s daughter) are ready for the greasepaint.
While Sonam will be seen rubbing shoulders with Rani Mukerji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saanwariya, Sanaa will debut with Sudhir Mishra’s teenage tale Direct Dil Se. Battle ready Unlike their seniors, Sonam and Sanaa promise not to have any unshaped eyebrows or quirky accents.
Says Sanaa, “Despite an absolutely non filmy childhood, I always wanted to be part of the industry and now that I have an opportunity, I’m going to give it my best.” Sonam, however, wasn’t available for comment as she is bound by Bhansali’s contract. Zoya, who first announced a film with Tabu, has assisted big-bro Farhan on earlier projects.
And Ahana is reportedly flying off to New York for a short course in direction. Says elder sister Esha, “There were acting offers for Ahana but she was always clear about filmmaking.” Parents are, of course, proud at their daughters’ decisions.
While Aditya Pancholi says he feels good that Sanaa is serious about her choice, Anil Kapoor refuses to say much except blessing his daughter. Now, let’s see if this new crop succeeds in delivering what we like.
