Bollywood has been going on and off with the debate on nepotism. While some claim that being a star kid is a sure shot ticket to stardom, others believe that talent supersedes all and the audience is the final judge. However, it is often thought that Bollywood star kids will pick up acting in films. And that is not true.
Here are 8 Bollywood star kids who ditched acting and took up other streams, unlike their parents.
1- Ridhima Kapoor Sahni
Ranbir Kapoor‘s elder sister has nothing to do with acting despite coming from the Kapoor clan. She is a well-established fashion and jewellery designer.
2- Shweta Nanda
Despite coming from the heirloom of Amitabh Bachchan‘s family, Shweta Nanda has kept a safe distance from the world of acting. She chose to pick up modeling with L’oreal and even hosted a talk show with NextGen. She has also remained a journalist with CNN IBN.
3- Saba Ali Khan Pataudi
The lesser-known sibling of Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan, Saba Ali Khan is a rare sight in Bollywood. While Soha Ali Khan and Saif Ali Khan made their career into Bollywood, like their mother, Saba was never attracted towards the glamorous world. She chose to be a jewellery designer and own her jewellery line.
4- Sussanne Khan
Daughter of yesteryear’s actor Sanjay Khan made a name for herself in the interior designing world. She owns her own designing studio ‘The Charcoal Project’ and is known for her creative work. She has even partnered with Gauri Khan on many projects.
5- Anshula Kapoor
Daughter of Boney Kapoor and sister of Arjun Kapoor, Anshula is a lesser known face and is a geek. An ex-Google employee, she is also the operations manager at HRX which is an apparel brand of Hrithik Roshan.
6- Rhea Kapoor
Daughter of Anil Kapoor, Rhea stays behind the scenes as a film producer and fashion stylist. She pursued a career in fashion designing and is now the girl behind Sonam’s striking fashion fads.
7- Ahana Deol
Daughter of Hema Malini and Dharmendra, Ahana Deol skipped the acting part and followed the footsteps of her mother by taking up Orissi dancing as her profession.
8- Shaheen Bhatt
The elder daughter of Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan chose to skip acting and take control backstage. She has co-written the movie Son of Sardaar, been an assistant director for Raaz 3 and learned filmmaking from London.
Well, surely, these people have opened up a brand new branch for discussion on nepotism!
