10 Bollywood star kids who failed after a dream launch

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 BarsaatGupt 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 productions.

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 wonder?!

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 since.

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, Bipasha Basu.

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.
