Top 7 Bollywood Star Kids Who Failed To Go With A Bang In The Industry

Nagini Shree |May 21, 2019

Not all star kids with a filmy background can gain success in the Tinsel Tower. While some do enjoy stardom, others simply fade away and slowly vanish from public memory.

Nepotism has always been a debatable topic in Bollywood. The film industry has many star kids who are making wonders in the tinsel tower regardless of tough competition and derogatory remarks from outsiders. There are thousands of people who dream to make it big in the industry, but besides outstanding acting performance, being born into a filmy family is favorable launch-pad.

Not everybody can bask the success in Bollywood industry like Kajol, Hrithik Roshan or Alia Bhatt. Blame it on the luck or lack of talent - these kids just fail to make a mark. From Uday Chopra to Esha Deol, many star kids have failed to impress the audience. Here are a few examples of celeb kids, who couldn't make it big in Bollywood.

Starkid Uday Chopra

Being the son of Yash Chopra and brother of Aditya Chopra, Uday Chopra made a grand debut into Bollywood with the multi-starrer Mohabbatein starring Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and others. However, unfortunately, he couldn't win all the hearts of audiences and lost the track after back to back flop movies like Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, Neal ‘n’ Nikki and Pyaar Impossible.

Starkid Esha Deol

The daughter of famous actors Hema Malini and Dharmendra, Esha Deol had an easy entry into the film industry. She made her debut with the 2002 film Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe featuring Aftab Shivdasani, Sanjay Kapoor and Jaya Bachchan in the leading roles. Although she starred in several movies in the course of her career so far, nothing made her career path go upwards. Sadly, she couldn’t match up to the stardom of her mother, Malini.
Starkid Tanishaa Mukherjee
Daughter of yesteryear’s successful actress Tanuja, Tanisha Mukherjee couldn’t live up to the name of her mother and sister Kajol. After making an unsuccessful debut as a leading lady in flop Neal N Nikki, she continued to fail to impress the audience in some projects like Sarkar and Tango Charlie. Now she's all but a former Bigg Boss contestant.
Starkid Athiya Shetty
Growing up with a heavy tag of the Kapoor family, Harshvardhan Kapoor was expected to have an easy ride into the Bollywood industry. Harshvardhan Kapoor, brother of actor Sonam Kapoor and son of Bollywood superstar Anil Kapoor made his debut in Mirzya; however, he failed to steal the audience's hearts. Then he did a couple of films, but he couldn't create the magic on the screen as his daddy and sister.
Starkid Adhyayan Suman
Bollywood and famous television star Shekhar Suman's son, Adhyayan made his entry into B-town in 2008 with Haal-E-Dil, which tanked at the box-office and went on to bag several films - but none of which succeeded in bringing him popularity and love from the audience.

Starkid Sikander Kher

Being the son of popular actors Anupam Kher and Kiran Kher, Sikander Kher started his acting career with the movie 2018's Woodstock Villa. Since then, he has featured in five more films but failed to impress the audience, which proved that he doesn’t inherit the understanding of cinema like his veteran parents.
