Mumbai: Bollywood is home to a number of families that have contributed immensely to Indian cinema. The Kapoor family is one of the most popular families of the Tinsel Town, with four generations into the world celluloid.

Now, Bollywood is home to a number of star kids who have taken a big leap into the world of cinema.

Let’s take a look at some of them:

Ranbir Kapoor: Great-grandson of Prithviraj Kapoor, grandson of the legendary Raj Kapoor and son of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh – Ranbir Kapoor – is certainly the next big thing in Bollywood. The charming actor has won a million hearts with his splendid performances in ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Barfi!’ and has lots more to contribute to the world of cinema.

Shahid Kapoor: Son of actors Pankaj Kapoor and Neelima Azim, Shahid Kapoor is indeed here to play a very long innings. His performances in Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Kaminey’ and ‘Haider’ have helped him prove his worth as a fine artist. He has many more plum projects in his kitty and has a long way to go.

Arjun Kapoor: Son of producer Boney Kapoor and nephew of the evergreen Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor had nursed no desire to become an actor. Thanks to Salman Khan, the hunk of an actor, shed kilos to turn fab and pursue acting as a career. Now, he has proved himself as an actor and is on the threshold of experimenting with his skill.

Varun Dhawan: Son of filmmaker David Dhawan- Varun Dhawan – began his career as a chocolate boy hero in Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’. With an intense performance in Shriram Raghavan’s ‘Badlapur’, Varun proved that he could deliver unconventional roles too with elan.

Tiger Shroff: Son of the very dashing Jackie Shroff- Tiger- made his debut with ‘Heropanti’. The film may not have made business as expected, but Tiger’s efforts certainly did not go unnoticed. He will soon be seen in ‘Baaghi’ opposite Shraddha Kapoor.

Sooraj Pancholi: Son of actors Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, Sooraj, has been launched by Salman Khan. The young actor will make his debut with Bikhil Advani’s ‘Hero’, a remake of Subhash Ghai’s namesake 1983 blockbuster starring Jackie Shroff.

Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor will soon make his debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Mirziya’ and thus join his sister Sonam in Bollywood.
