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. Besides Karishma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, daughters of film actors have now ventured into the field of acting.

Let’s take a look at some of them:

Known for his impeccable fashion sense, Sonam has been part of films such as ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Khoobsurat’. Soon, we will get to see the pretty girl essaying the role of Neerja Bhanot, a flight attendant with the Pan Am Flight 73, who was killed while saving passengers from terrorists on board the hijacked in 1986.

Sonakshi Sinha: Daughter of actor Shatrughan Sinha, Sonakshi had a dream debut opposite Salman Khan, her mentor.

Alia Bhatt: Daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan, Alia was launched by Karan Johar in ‘Student Of The Year’. However, it was Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Highway’ that helped Alia display her acting skills. She has delivered commendable performances in ‘2 States’, ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’. The cute looking girl will be seen in ‘Shaandaar’ opposite Shahid Kapoor and has ‘Kapoor and sons’ and ‘Udta Punjab’ in the pipeline.
