It feels like only yesterday when Shahrukh Khan’s deep dimpled smile and innocuous charm in DDLJ transported us straight into a waking dream. Or Salman’s incomparable boyish style when he hummed ‘O…O Jaane Jaana’ had cinema halls ecstatically reverberating. For the 90’s kids, it’s hard to admit these gorgeous men are well into their 50’s now. But come 2017 and these very same 90’s kids will all be grown up 20 something’s, ready to be stars themselves! And Boy! a new crop of B-town celebrity kids is waiting to hop on the Bollywood bandwagon in style. Check out the list!
Sara Ali Khan- Saif Ali Khan’s 23 yr old daughter Sara Ali Khan is rumored to make her big debut opposite Bollywood heart throb and superstar Hrithik Roshan. Apparently, Karan Malhotra of the MY NAME IS KHAN and JODHAA AKBAR fame is all set to launch this duo in his next satirical venture. If the stars are aligned in Sara’s favour this would easily be counted among the decade’s biggest debuts and one of the most enviable launch pads for any star kid on the rise.
Aadar Jain- The Kapoor Khaandaan has given us three generations of good looking talented actors. This 2017, we have yet another member from the Kapoor camp ready to take on Bollywood with aplomb. That would be none other than Aadar Jain! He is the son of Reema Jain, Raj Kapoor’s daughter and is soon to be launched in Aditya Chopra’s next offering. It was Karan Johar that officially confirmed his debut on twitter saying, “Go Aadar!!!!!! Make us proud!!!! Big love from all of us @DharmaMovies ….congratulations @yrf and @Shanoozeing ..” “Go Aadar!!!!!! Make us proud!!!! Big love from all of us @DharmaMovies ….congratulations @yrf and @Shanoozeing”.
Ahan Shetty- If Bollywood’s Bhaijaan Salman Khan has got your back, you have nothing to be afraid of. The lucky newcomer this time is Suniel Shetty’s son Ahan. The dotting daddy seems to be thrilled with Ahan’s impending breakthrough with Sajid Nadiadwala’s untitled next. While the movie is touted to be an action-drama, no more details have been divulged yet.
Jhanvi Kapoor- Former tinsel town damsel Sridevi is a proud mother. A little birdie tells us that daughter Jhanvi is soon to mark her debut in Karan Johar’s next, which turns out to be a remake of the blockbuster Marathi film SAIRAAT. If genetics are anything to go by, then Jhaanvi has nothing to worry about. She’s got it from her mommy!
Ishaan Khattar- Starring opposite Jhanvi in the SAIRAAT remake is Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan. The young gun is gearing up to raise the ‘chocolate boy’ bar higher with those lovely locks. While big brother Shahid has moved from rom-com to more serious roles, Ishaan is contemplating taking a leaf out of Shahid’s book.
Karan Deol –Rumour mills were abuzz with the news of Sunny Deol’s son kick-starting the production for his big Bollywood debut post-Diwali this year. Apparently, the dotting daddy has gone through 50 scripts in two years to find just the perfect story for his sonny to launch. We hear they’ve found just the right one, titled ‘PAL PAL DIL KE PAAS’, but there hasn’t been any confirmation on this yet.
Mustafa Burmawalla- Bollywood’s famous ‘men in white’ Abbas-Mastan have launched several Bollywood stars over the years. However this time around, Abbas is all set to bring his handsome son Mustafa into the showbiz. The film in which Mustafa will be starring is an action-romance titled ‘MACHINE’. He is rumored to be working his mean muscles to execute some daredevil stunts in the film. We’re sure Daddy and uncle (Abbas-Mastan) are leaving no stone unturned for his big Bollywood blockbuster debut.
With such a promising bunch of kids making their way to B-town and even more fool proof launch pads, let’s wait and see who rocks, shocks and stuns Bollywood next year.
