While in Bollywood, several second-generation actors have shared screen space with their star parents, it looks like in Hollywood, they prefer starting it young. M Night Shyamalan’s latest sci-fi release After Earth stars the father-son duo of Will and Jaden Smith.
And it’s not the first time Senior and the teenaged Junior Smith have acted in a film together. Buzz is that a Bollywood actor is looking to purchase the film’s rights to remake it, while casting himself and his son.
While several of our B-town stars are proud dads to their teenaged sons, here’s looking at Bollywood father-son duos who could fit the bill.
Shah Rukh Khan and Aryan
Shah Rukh Khan’s 15-year-old son Aryan is busy completing his education in London currently. Incidentally, SRK has never denied the possibility of his two kids entering the industry. We won’t be surprised if the star decides to launch his son with a super cool project.
Saif Ali Khan and Ibrahim
Saif’s son Ibrahim was born to parents who are both actors. While Saif’s daughter Sara apparently has attracted the attention of several filmmakers, his 13-year-old son cannot be far behind.
Akshay Kumar and Aarav
Though Aarav’s only 10-years-old, we wonder if he has all the genes of his dad, known to be one of the most successful action heroes around. The young Kumar is believed to be taking martial arts training and we feel it’s only a matter of time before he wows the audience with his combat skills.
Govinda and Yashvardhan
Govinda’s daughter Narmada may have had a bit of a tough luck in the industry, waiting in the sidelines for her Bollywood launch for some time now, but Chi Chi’s teenaged son Yashvardhan is apparently planning to take his first steps into Hindi films soon. Now with Govinda’s acting chops, we feel father-son will make an interesting combination on screen.
Suniel Shetty and Aahan
While the actor’s daughter Athiya is all set to make her B-town debut soon, it will be no surprise if we see his son Aahan taking his place in front of the cameras soon. Suniel was even heard saying recently how he wants his son (an aspiring musician) to work under experienced folk from the industry to gain a firm footing in Bollywood.
