12 Unsuccessful Star Kids – Even Nepotism Couldn’t Get Them Success

The sudden demise of Sushant Singh Rajput raised eyebrows on how much the Bollywood industry is dominated by nepotism. The kids of Bollywood are born with a silver spoon as it ensures them a ticket straight into an A-list movie.  While few of them excelled and experienced fame, but most of them failed despite various attempts, couldn’t create a niche for themselves. Here is a list of celebrity kids whom even nepotism couldn’t get them success:

1.Tanisha Mukherji

Tanisha is the daughter of superstar Tanuja and the sister of the most talented actress Kajol, but this couldn’t save her from a failing career. Her selection of movies nosedived her career before even beginning. She has worked in awful movies like Neil N Nikki, Tango Charlie, Sssshhh and many more. Now, she is only remembered as an ex Bigg Boss contestant and that too because of her cheap thrills with Arman Kohli.

12. Suneil Anand

The son of evergreen legend and superstar Dev Anand, Suneil Anand’s career was not even tenuously close to take off.

  1. It is extremely important to understand that being a star kid may give them a good break because many times it is the family or close member of the family who are launching them. However,it is up to the audience to accept them or not. I also want to add that many times children tend to follow the footsteps of their parents for eg. A family of doctors, a family where generation to generation have served the nation by being a part of the defence, a family of teachers, polticians, and the list goes on. Nevertheless, we have to also understand that Bollywood is a industry and when we say industry, it is about investment that believes in making a huge profit. Thy will always invest on a actor who is bankable who ever he or she may be. At present look at Sharukh Khan. Do we have any of his new movies as of now but if Nepotism really existed then in that case Karàn, who is Sharukh very close friend should have casted him in all the movies. Moreover, If Nepotism really existed than how come all these actors like Kangana, Ayushman, Rao and many more, how did they get the break. Lets think and lets not fall into this. If you are talented, fighter and survival of the fittest you will survive in the industry. I hope all this talk on Nepotism will not ditter our young, talented generation to come in the industry. But before that think that like in school where only the talented got A+, in the same way Bollywood is a Industry and you are not here to make friends but to woo your audience with your talent and to make your dream come true by becoming a star.
