Bollywood seems to be more of a hierarchical and legacy driven industry as nowhere else do we get to see families succeeding their forefathers in the industry, that too in such huge numbers. While one generation of these legacy bearers led by actresses like the Kapoor sisters, actors like the Khan brothers and junior Dutt has already made a strong foothold in the industry the younger lot is just about ready to take the reins in their own hands and the elder siblings seem to be happy enough passing on the baton to the younger ones.
Ready to make their debut with some big banner films are the star siblings Harshwardhan Kapoor (brother of Bollywood’s fashion icon Sonam Kapoor), Isabel Kaif (as is evident from the surname, sister of the ravishing Katrina Kaif), Armaan Jain (grandson of RajKapoor with a host of star Kapoor cousins) and Mohit Marwah ( Arjun and Sonam Kapoor’s cousin) with movies Mirza Sahibaan, Dr. Cabbie, Lekar Hum Deewana Dil and Fugly.
These star kids and star siblings are definitely born with the art in their blood line but it is their onscreen success that will eventually decide if the genes are recessive or dominant. While we are eagerly waiting to welcome this new generation of actors we sincerely hope that they are able to hold on to the legacy of good Indian cinema.
