Unlike their predecessors who courted big banners, hit directors and sometimes Salman Khan for a noteworthy launch pad, these star kids have already captured the attention of the who’s who of filmdom, fans and the media. Here is a look at the celebrity kids who could give the young stars of Bollywood a run for their money.
If you have paid close attention to the pattern followed by the gen-next of Bollywood, you definitely would’ve noticed that these aspiring actresses keep a low profile on social media before opening it up to the world. Last year, we saw Navya Naveli Nanda, Khushi Kapoor, and Shanaya Kapoor open their Instagram handle. If you scroll through, you will see that these divas may not have made it to the big screen but have won us over with their easy, breezy fashion choices followed by the funniest, wittiest captions.
And when it comes to speaking of a gen-next star who can leave you laughing with her captions, then it has to be Janhvi Kapoor.
While we’ve been obsessing over her sartorial pics, Janhvi has been winning the social media game. She has gone on to give her fans a glimpse into her BTS looks for photo shoots, her holidays, dance class, and the most heartwarming posts with her parents.
She seldom makes a public appearance, but has been making her presence felt on social media via her personal Instagram account. She addressed the colour discrimination meted out to her, sharing that she has been facing derogatory and hurtful comments about her skin tone from an early age
The student and budding actor also spoke about the beauty standards that are pervasive today, which suggest that being tall and light-skinned equates to being beautiful. She also referred to the TV show Indian Matchmaking, which may have perpetuated the stereotype that being lighter-skinned was a prerequisite to getting married.
Aaliyah Kashyap, who has more than 100k followers on Instagram, is quite active on social media and keeps sharing insights from her day-to-day activities. Daughter of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and his ex-wife Aarti Bajaj, this 14-year-old is papa’s princess! She often posts adorable pictures with her dad. However, more than a future filmmaker, we see her in front of the camera.
She is yet to make an entry into Bollywood, is quite a known face on social media courtesy her alluring pictures. She loves to party and her style game is always on point. She definitely is a star in the making as her Instagram pictures are enough to prove it
Sara Ali Khan has been in the news for some time now. For the stunning photos, Sara wore a gorgeous ensemble from Manish Malhotra latest collection, ‘Nooraniyat’. The actress has been sharing pictures of herself dressed in bridal wears for quite some time but this one stands out. With a backdrop of glittering candles in royal havelis of Jaipur, Sara looks ravishing.
It’s not an overstatement to say Sara Ali Khan’s approach to beauty, wellness and fitness has changed a lot over the years. “While I still quite enjoy doing bold, bright and different looks, I have come to realise that makeup should enhance your persona and your natural skin, more than actually making you up,” she shared. “So my beauty vibe has evolved, mostly because I think I am now beginning to enjoy being natural and real and more myself.” Scroll through her Instagram to get a sneak-peek of her experimental, positive approach.
After actor Jackie Shroff and Ayesha Shroff’s son Tiger, it’s daughter Krishna’s turn to shine. A pro basketball coach, the young lady would make for an exciting addition to the industry, thanks to her style sense and passion for cinema.
Tiger Shroff and Krishna Shroff are one of social media’s most loved sibling duos. Every time the two appear together on the Internet, netizens go over them.
If you browse through Krishna Shroff’s Instagram handle, you will know that she is a fitness enthusiast and loves her workout session. She often flaunts her envy-inducing curves on Instagram and the pictures often go viral.
Navya Naveli Nanda
Navya is blessed with good genes and is a stunner just like her Bachchan and Nanda family members. She is a social media influencer with 83.3 thousand followers on Instagram. Through her posts, Navya has shared glimpses into her life as a student, family vacations, and her childhood with brother, Agastya.
Khushi is a fashionista just like her sister Janhvi. While Janhvi has made her Bollywood debut, fans are waiting for Khushi to do the same. During the lockdown, Khushi became popular with her TikTok videos and her acting was on point. At present, Khushi is completing her studies at the New York Film Academy. She returned to Mumbai to be with her family after the lockdown was announced. Prior to Khushi making her Insta profile public, it was through Janhvi’s account that fans got to see her.
She loves keeping her fans entertained through her content on Instagram. She shares photos and videos of herself working out, trying out DIY skincare, doing her makeup and sharing her newest—and coolest—beauty looks.
Alaya knows that if you try—and then try again—you’ll finally succeed, and she isn’t afraid of sharing the process on Instagram. The actor has been practising her dance skills, and shows blooper reels often. Modish aesthetics, neutral toned walls, high ceilings and cozy, large rooms define this star’s abode.
