Faraaz Khan: He debuted with the 1996 Vikram Bhatt thriller Fareb. The film did average business at the box office, but performance wise it was Milind Gunaji, who walked away with all the plaudits for his stellar negative portrayal. Faraaz, who is the son of small-time actor Yusuf Khan, (best remembered as Zebisko from Amar Akbar Anthony) was later seen with Rani Mukerji in Mehendi, but failed to make any kind of impact and disappeared from public memory rather quickly
Faisal Khan: Aamir Khan's younger brother featured in Vikram Bhatt's 1994 film Madhosh, which was produced by his late father Tahir Hussain. The film failed to launch his career. He then featured with Aamir in Dharmesh Darshan's Mela in 2000 followed by some forgettable B-grade films
Shadaab Khan: Amjad Khan's son debuted opposite Rani Mukerji in the 1997 dud Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat. While Rani went on to achieve fame, Shadaab faded away from the scene completely after a handful of unsuccessful movies
Zayed Khan: His father Sanjay Khan wasn't a highly successful actor himself, but Zayed hasn't proved to be half as good. Ever since he hammed his way into Bollywood with the 2004 film Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne, he has shown little signs of improvement. Duds like Shaadi No.1 (2004), Fight Club (2006) and Yuvvraaj (2009) spelt the death knell for his acting career
Ayub Khan: Being Dilip Kumar's nephew gave Ayub an easy entry into Bollywood. However, while he possessed good looks, his acting skills couldn't match up to the same. He debuted with Mashooq (1992) and went on to star in Salaam (1994) and Khilona (1996) none of which could set the box office on fire in an era where the three other Khans were ruling the roost
Mohsin Khan: The former cricketer from Pakistan, who is best remembered for marrying Reena Roy, also tried his hand at Bollywood albeit with no success. Among the handful of films, he did include one with Rekha - Madam X in 1994
Sahil Khan: He made his debut with Sharman Joshi in N. Chandra's Style (2001). But, while Sharman has gone on to establish himself as moderately successful actor in Bollywood, Sahil has fallen by the wayside having done B-grade flicks like Double Cross: Ek Dhoka (2005). Sahil made news more for his off-field antics. His marriage to Negar Khan turned out to as big a disaster as his Bollywood career, with the deportation drama centring around the Norwegian national
Fardeen Khan: He is nowhere close to his dad, the legendary Feroz Khan, in terms of style and substance. After an eminently forgettable debut in Prem Aggan (1998) Fardeen resurrected his career with films like Jungle (2000) and Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya (2001). It wasn't long though before Fardeen's lack of talent came to the fore, and he started delivering one flop after the other -- 'Janasheen' (2003), 'Pyare Mohan' (2006) and 'Acid Factory' (2009) being some examples. This never-ending rut has all but finished his career
Arbaaz Khan: Salman Khan's brother made an impressive debut portraying a ruthless negative character in Daraar (1996). However, his limitations as an actor were exposed in his subsequent films like Hello Brother (1999) and Maa Tujhhe Salaam (2002) among others. Arbaaz has taken the smart decision to step away from the limelight - focussing on filmmaking whilst making cameo appearances
Sohail Khan: If there was an award for the most irritating on-screen Khan, Sohail might walk away with it without much trouble. Right from his lover boy debut Maine Dil Tujhko Diya in 2002 to Veer in 2010, he has carried the same stony expression in each film
The word Khan is synonymous with superstardom in Bollywood. However, here are 10 actors who possessed the famous surname but not the lucky to succeed...
