Tinsel town is an unpredictable place that can make an overnight star, out of anyone. In fact, it is so unpredictable that you might wake up tomorrow and see a trailer of a film with
Rakhi Sawant as the female lead. Oh wait! That already happened. God bless the people who put their money into the film that is supposed to be a serious one, but its trailer will leaving ROFLing like never before. However, there are people who are not half as lucky as Rakhi. After many years of trying to grab attention through her clothes and illogical statements, she has finally gotten what she always wanted.
The following stars however, began with exactly what they wanted but soon Bollywood realized that any movie that has them in it is bound to sink so now Bollywood has come to a mutual, unspoken agreement where no one caste them anymore.
In 2008, he debuted with the movie “
Jimmy”. From then on, almost all of his films received mixed to negative reviews, with nothing going in favor of him except perhaps his “
Haunted 3D”. However, the damage has been done and despite being the legendary
Mithun Chakraborty son, things do not seem to be working well for him.
Despite being producer
Kumar Mangat daughter, nothing seems to have gone well for this actress, model, and producer. The only successful film she has ever been a part of was Omkara, of which she was executive producer. Now she is married to
Raghav Sachar, a singer.
Exceptionally successful parents, an exceedingly talented sister and brother-in-law, and all people really know Tanishaa Mukerji is for her appearance in "
Bigg Boss Season 7" and her affair with
Armaan Kohli. She did do a few films and some TV shows but never left an impression on the audience’s hearts.
Despite having superstars of yesteryears as parents, the actress, or any of her siblings did not leave much of a mark. It seems Bollywood believes that their charm has now faded and that films are better off without them. It does not change the fact that there was a time when she enjoyed success, somewhere at the beginning of the century, but that time is now in the past.
Rajesh Khanna and “
Dimple Kapadia”s youngest child, she has
Akshay Kumar as her brother-in-law! But her last appearance on camera was in 2003, when she married her UK based businessman boyfriend Sameer Saran, and now she lives there with him and their children.
He tried. We cannot take that away from him. His last film, Heartless, has been described as a copy of Hollywood film “Awake”. He was in the news for his affair with
Kangana Ranaut, recently he tried to gain some media coverage by calling her a witch when the
Hrithik Roshan - Kangana fiasco was on, but sadly, he went way overboard and nobody believed him.
Last we heard, he was in LA, learning film making at UCLA. The only film that he does get in is the Dhoom franchisee. He has already closed all doors on his acting career and was last in the news for his ruthless dumping of
Nargis Fakhri days before their wedding via Whatsapp. He is the son of the man who taught romance to Indian cinema, Yash chopra, and brother of producer, film director, broadcast producer, screenwriter and distributor
Aditya Chopra. His sister-in-law,
Rani Mukerji has been a loved Bollywood celebrity for the last nineteen years, having been a hit among the audience right from her very first film, Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat.
Son of the legendary '
Jeetendra', brother of the queen of Tele Industry '
Ekta Kapoor', he is probably the only one in his family who could not make it to Bollywood despite several attempts. He has the Golmaal series, but that is all that he seems to have. No producer can possibly risk taking him in their film in the lead, having seen the disastrous results of Gayab and other such films.
Now the former actor runs Nevkant Films, but “
Dev Anand”s son could not do much for his acting career. He has a degree in Business Administration from American University, Washington, D.C. He is related to
Shekhar Kapur, Neelu and Aruna. He is also trained in Wing Tsun from Hong Kong.
Kirron Kher”s son, Sikandar has perpetually been appearing in supporting roles, which are continuously drying out. Although he attended acting workshops with many other children of celebrities, like Hrithik Roshan,
Abhishek Bachchan, it did not seem to have worked too well for him. or if it did, Bollywood is taking its own sweet time in recognizing him.
She never had much success to begin with, but things went from bad to worse when the MMS scandal that had her in the midst of it happened. It even caused her split from her then boyfriend who was with her in the MMS,
Ashmit Patel. She has done many regional films, comes from a long family of actors, and started acting at an incredibly young age. Her last Hindi film was in 2013, "
Rabba Main Kya Karoon", which was not much of a success. She has since started acting in Bengali films.
Remember Gabbar? The actor who played Gabbar,
Amjad Khan was a veteran actor who is recognized even today for his roles, especially those of villains in blockbuster films that went on to become classics. However, his son, Shadaab Khan, who started acting in 1997, five years after Amjad’s tragic death, could not gain the same name and fame as his father and his name was lost somewhere down the line.
Feroz Khan needs no introduction. The actor had an established presence and was a brand in himself that continues even after his death. His first film, Prem Aggan, was a film on a serious issue, but seems to have lost its seriousness in the actor’s performance and hilariously out of place dialogues with epic metaphors. It was also Fardeen Khan’s only film which won him an award.
The actor’s last film released in 2009, and before that he acted in many films, many of which also became hits, like Teri Kasam,
Love Story, Naam and Inderjeet, with great actors. His real name is Manoj Tuli, and he is the son of veteran actor
Rajendra Kumar. However, his career came to end in 2009, with Bihaad.
Shatrughan Sinha and “
Poonam Sinha”s son could not attain the same heights as their daughter
Sonakshi Sinha. Luv Sinha’s first and only film, "
Sadiyaan", was released in 2010.
Daughter of former actor and politician
Raj Babbar, Juhi Babbar is married to television and Bollywood actor
Anup Soni. She tried her hand at movies, theatre, and directing, but is now seen in none of these. After being seen in “It’s My Life” in 2013, she was never again heard of.
The actor is now seen in a few advertisements, of Myntra and a smart phone with
Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Raj Babbar’s son, he debuted with "Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na",
Imran Khan and '
Genelia DSouza'. At the next Filmfare awards, he was even nominated for best male debut and best supporting actor, along with a special jury certificate. His later films did him little good, each doing worse than the earlier one. He is now shooting for a Bengali film, Auroni Taikhon, by Saurav Chakraborty.
Film Director '
Harry Baweja' and producer "
Pammi Baweja"s son, Harman Baweja attended "
Kishore Namit Kapoor"s acting institute in Mumbai. All of Harman’s three films were commercial failures, leading to heavy losses of the producers despite having notable actors and appearances.
Shraddha Kapoor"s brother, "
Shakti Kapoor"s son has not been doing too well in Bollywood, in fact, not half as well as his sister. His last few films, "
Ugly" and "
Jazbaa" have not fared well at Bollywood Box-Office. He belongs to the lesser known side of the Kapoor family, who has not had the same taste of success as the rest of his relatives.
Girish Kumar Taurani
Girish Taurani, or Girish Kumar, as the world knows him, was brought into the industry by
Prabhu Deva. Prabhu Deva trained him for three and half years before finally shooting the film. Choreographers worked with him every day for those three and half years and a trainer from South Africa was brought in to train him. His opening sequence in his first film, where we see him surfing, was also shot in Australia. Christopher Bryan, an international surfing expert was called for this scene from Hawaii. All of this went down the drain when the movie released, with the critics called Girish Kumar stiff in dancing and acting, and the audience not loving it too much either.
