Most talked-about father-son duos of Bollywood
NR [ Fri, May 23, 2014 ]
Bollywood is one big family. It won't be wrong to say that the industry has become a family business of sorts for most of the star clans.
Earlier it was the fathers who were calling shots, present belongs to their young sons.
With yet another star son, Tiger Shroff gearing up to test his fate today, let's take a look at some of the hottest father-son duos of recent times...
Ranbir Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor
'Like father, like son,' - this old adage is perfect to describe this duo.
Both have looks to die for and just like his father, even Ranbir has a massive female following.
We got to see the two sharing screen space for the first time in 'Besharam' but unfortunately the film tanked at the box office.
Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan
Yet another exemplar of 'like father, like son' adage is this father-son duo.
From features and height to mannerisms and style, Abhishek comes quite close to dad Amitabh Bachcchan.
If only, he was gifted with acting skills as great as dad, he could have been a mega star too.
But unfortunately, Abhishek has to strive harder to hit the bull's eye.
Hrithik Roshan and Rakesh Roshan
Considered as one of the most successful father-son duo of Bollywood, Hrithik and Rakesh are known to create fireworks every time they have come together.
From Kaho Na Pyaar Hai to Koi..Mil Gaya to Krissh and Krissh 3 - we have seen this duo making history on box-office.
That's not all. Thick or thin, you will always find them standing for each other.
Javed Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar
This father-son pair is a power-house of talent.
While Javed is known to the world as an ace writer, whose pen gave us stories like Sholay, Zanjeer, Deewar and Mr.India to name a few, his son Farhan is busy revolutionizing Bollywood by doing something new all the time.
Then be it the 'bromantic' Dil Chahta Hai or the magical 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' - Farhan is full of surprises.
Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra
If Chopra senior was the Pasha of Romance, Aditya is taking the legacy forward.
Yash Chopra was the last word in Romance with films like Silsila, Chandni, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
His son, Aditya Chopra is taking care of the Yashraj Films, which they established together.
Not just that, the recently married Aditya is also doing his bit by promoting new talent in the industry.
Darmendra- Bonny Deol, Sunny Deol
Good looking Papa Deol enjoyed a cult status during his days of yore.
Girls were mad about his and directors wanted to cast him in his films.
However, that kinda stardom was not enjoyed by any of his sons.
Though, Sunny Deol has been a popular action hero of Bollywood but Bobby was always the second preferred in Bollywood.
Jeetendra and Tusshar Kapur
Jeetu, Jeetendra or the Jumping Jack, this actor enjoyed high dose of popularity during the 70s and 80s.
One of the most sought after actors of Bollywood, Jeetendra had given innumerable hits in his career.
However, his son Tusshar could never enjoy that kind of reputation in the industry.
