Decoding the nepotism debate: B'wood protégé's who made it & flopped!

Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide has started a nepotism debate, where many have voiced that star kids have it easy in Bollywood. While star kids may get easy access to directors & producers and even a dream launch, acting in films is definitely not a cakewalk if you have no talent.

Many actors have to live up to standards set by their fathers & grandfathers, while some succeed, many miserably fail despite having all the resources handy.

The first family of Bollywood is one of the many examples we will explore. Top of the list for a hit father & flop son are megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek Bachchan. While Abhishek gave many hits like Guru, Raavan, Delhi 6 but his career did not shine like his megastar father Big B in Bollywood who at the age of 77 continues to act and vow his fans.

Just like Big B, audiences had high expectations from Hema Malini and Dharmendra's children. But Esha Deol & Bobby Deol failed to make their mark in Bollywood. Esha Doel's only credit-worthy appearance was in an item number for the blockbuster Dhoom in 2006. While Bobby Deol who shot to fame with hits such as Barsaat, Gupt, and Soldier lost his charm when he appeared in films like Romeo, Housefull 4, Race 3.

Mr. India, Nayak, Ram Lakhan, Taal, and the list goes on when you find hit films of Superstar Anil Kapoor. However, his kid's fashionista Sonam Kapoor & Harshvardhan Kapoor didn't taste success like him. We guess having a Bollywood superstar as your father is not enough to be successful.

Jitendra’s son Tusshar Kapoor couldn’t taste triumph like his dad either. He acted in a number of winning flicks, but he failed to enjoy success in the industry.

Known as the ‘Disco Dancer’, Mithun Chakraborty is named amongst the most victorious and versatile actors of the Hindi film industry. In contrast, his son Mimoh Chakraborty failed to make his mark as an actor.

And as Shatrughan Sinha would say 'Khamosh' but how can we stay quiet about his daughter Sonakshi & son Luv, who too have not shone in Bollywood despite having access to all the producers in Bollywood.

Late Rishi Kapoor the son of the legendary actor Raj Kapoor lived up to the name & reputation of the Kapoor family, but his brother Randhir and Rajeev Kapoor however failed to win moviegoers despite tedious efforts.

Carrying forward the Kapoor legacy, Karishma, Kareena & Ranbir Kapoor have definitely carved their own space in the film industry with both their acting talent and choices of films & their stellar performances over the years.

So is it access to producers and directors that make you successful or is it talent? A debate that has left many questioning the workings of Bollywood

While the idea of father and son or father-daughter coming together in the role of director-actor is nothing new, both Hrithik Roshan - Rakesh Roshans son and Alia Bhat- Mahesh Bhatt's daughter have upped the expectations for others who will want to follow suit while Rakesh Roshan has directed his son in 'Kaho Na Pyaar Hai', 'Koi Mil Gaya', 'Krrish' among others. Alia has made her name in Bollywood with her versatile acting
