Move over Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty, Akshara Haasan and Sana Kapoor. Here’s a new set of star kids from Bollywood who are all set to sweep you off your feet.
Amitabh Bachchan's granddaughter Navya Naveli
Shweta Nanda Bachchan’s daughter Navya Naveli first came into the limelight when photos of her partying with another star kid, Aryan Khan (Shah Rukh Khan’s son), surfaced last year. But it was her recent high society debut at Parisian Le Bal des Débutantes that made people sit up and take notice. The London Oaks School student, who is also the great granddaughter of Raj Kapoor, strutted like a star in a haute couture gown. Some people are just born for the spotlight.
Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan
Remember the cuddly toddler in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham playing a younger SRK? Cut to today — it is his pictures with schoolmate Navya Naveli, his latest selfies with an 'unidentified' firang, his airport shots with sister Suhana and his adorable photos with kid bro Abram that define Aryan Khan. Undoubtedly, SRK's son is THE hottest thing on the block. Already making a mark with those angry young and ruffled looks, this lanky kid was rumoured to being launched in Dhoom 6 by none other than Aditya Chopra, who gifted his dad Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge two decades ago. For now, he is studying in London Oaks School. But we are sure the universe is conspiring to make bigger plans for him.
Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira
You must have spotted Ira Khan, Aamir Khan and former wife Reena Dutta's daughter, at film screenings. She stands out for her sporty and chic looks. But this shy girl has more to offer than what meets the eye. While her daddy dearest is proud of her academic excellence, this XIIth grade student is an animal rights activist, too. She managed to gather all the B-town biggies, including Salman Khan and Abhishek Bachchan, for a fundraiser football match for an animal shelter earlier this year. However, it was her effortless style with geek glasses that caught our fancy. Now, all we can hope is that this Little Miss Perfectionist follows in her daddy's footsteps.
Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi
Sridevi’s daughters, Jhanvi and Khushi Kapoor, are certainly the next debutante duo to watch out for. But right now, we are placing our bets on the elder of the two. Jhanvi has all it takes to be a Bollywood star — picture-perfect genes, oodles of oomph, the right swag and a producer dad (Bonney Kapoor). So, while mummy Sridevi is waiting for the right project to launch her daughter, we are getting enough glimpses of this party animal already, thanks to her selfies with other star kids like Saif Ali Khan's son Ibrahim and her hot holiday pictures flooding social media.
Jackie Shroff’s daughter Krishna
If you’re in awe of ’90s star Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger’s super flex body, there’s more that this lineage has to offer. His sister Krishna hit headlines last year when she posted pictures of her and boyfriend Spenser Johnson in Goa. Daddy’s li’l girl set Instagram on fire with some more sizzling poses that few called ‘topless’, only to draw her ire. Watch out for this tigress.
Sanjay Dutt’s daughter Trishala
Sanju Baba may be determined not to let Trishala enter the bad mad world of Bollywood, but daddy's little girl is little no more. Clearly with a mind of her own, the US-bred Trishala has already made her presence felt through her fashion and beauty blogs. Although raised far far away from the shin and shine of tinsel town, this star kid sure knows where she belongs. And so do we.
Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara
She stunned us a couple of years ago when she appeared on the cover of Hello magazine with mum Amrita Singh. She's currently studying in Columbia, but Saif Ali Khan and ex-wife Amrita's daughter has her heart set on Bollywood. And unlike Sanjay Dutt, her doting daddy will not stand in her way. The buzz is that Sara has bonded big time with Saif's current wife, Kareena Kapoor, and has been taking tips from her. With Saif, Amrita, Kareena and aunt Soha Ali Khan in her family, there's no stopping this kid from aiming for the stars.
Pooja Bedi’s daughter Aalia
Aalia Ebrahim, former Bollywood screen scorcher Pooja Bedi’s daughter with Ebrahim Furniturewalla, is a regular in B-town bashes. Much like mommy dear in her hey days, Aalia grabbed eyeballs for her bikini-clad photos that went viral. Looks like this one’s here to stay and sizzle. Beware.
Bhagyashree's son Abhimanyu
It's been a while since we first got to hear about Abhimanyu's debut, but mommy Bhagyashree wants to keep it hush hush. We wonder why. Oh yeah, we remember the disaster that was Bhagyashree's attempt to launch hubby Himalaya in Qaid Mein Hai Bulbul two decades ago. So, obviously, the Maine Pyar Kiya girl is being cautious with her son. Wise move, we say. Hope it pays off, and Abhimanyu can soon say 'Maine film kiya.'
