1] Arya Babbar
Son of Raj Babbar, Arya has appeared in a few
hit movies such as Guru and Ready, apart from
royal flops like Tees Maar Khan. But he has failed to reach the
same status as his dad.
2] Esha Deol
When you are the daughter of ‘Dreamgirl’ Hema
Malini and ‘Jat Yamla Pagla Deewana’ Dharmendra, you must have some awesome
genes in your pool, right? Wrong! Just look at Esha Deol, whose only
credit-worthy appearance in Bollywood was in an item number for the
blockbuster Dhoom in 2006. After many years of delivering
flops, Esha decided to get hooked and is today happily married, far away from
the film industry.
3] Bobby Deol
Another progeny of Dharmendra, Bobby’s career
got off to a stellar start with hits such as Barsaat, Gupt and Soldier.
Bobby excelled in the thriller genre right through the late nineties and early
2000s, but flopped when it came to playing the Romeo. His career graph went
south as the years passed by, and today, he is only seen is his father’s home
4] Uday Chopra
Yash Chopra’s son was always going to have a
spectacular launch, and he did in the 2000 blockbuster Mohabbatein.
However, it was a multi-starrer with Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan
stealing all the accolades. Uday continued to appear in daddy
dearest’s banner films, did a few solos as well, but could never quite pass
mediocrity in terms of acting. Perhaps the biggest score of his career is that
he is dating the very hot Nargis Fakhri! Now, how did he manage that, we
5] Tushar Kapoor
When you talk of Uday Chopra, Tushar Kapoor is never far behind.
Son of the colourful Jeetendra, Tushar’s acting is anything but! His best
performance so far in Bollywood is of a mute in the Golmaal franchise.
He also showed shades of above-averageness in Shor in the City, but
could never quite cut the line. That being said, if it comes as any solace, he
is a more successful actor than Uday Chopra!
6] Fardeen Khan
Feroz Khan was a stylish…check that…continues
to be a very stylish persona both onscreen and offscreen. Unfortunately, the
lesser said about his son Fardeen, the better! Feroz launched his son in Prem
Aggan in the late nineties and the film did well, with Fardeen even
winning the Filmfare best debutant award. However, despite a few noteworthy
performances like Dev, he was party to flops galore and continues
to try his luck till date.
7] Sikander Kher
Despite being born to two extremely talented
actors, Anupam and Kirron Kher, Sikander has not made the cut in Bollywood. He
was first seen in Woodstock Villa (2000) and then most
recently in Players (2011).
8] Jackky Bhagnani
Dad Vashu Bhagnani has produced hit films
such as Coolie No. 1, but could not make the right choice for his
son Jackky, who did F.A.L.T.U movies! Jackky did win the IIFA
best debut award for Kal Kissne Dekha, but has failed to impress
9] Harman Baweja
Son of art director Harry Baweja and producer
Pammi Baweja, Harman made his debut with the extremely hyped up Sci-Fi
flick Love Story 2050. The movie was anything but worth the
hype, and Harman only came to be known as the poor man’s Hrithik Roshan! Harman
was later seen in more flops like Victory and What’s
Your Raashee?. Nowadays, he is reportedly romancing another jobless actor,
10] Adhyayan Suman
Well, you can’t really call Shekhar Suman a
hit actor, but he sure was popular due to his television show Movers N
Shakers. However, son Adhyayan’s career seems to be going nowhere close to
even that. Adhyayan was nominated for the Filmfare’s best debutant award
for Haal-e-Dil, but failed to deliver any hits. He was more
popular for his short-lived romance with Kangna Ranaut.
