Bollywood offsprings who are more popular than their celebrity parents
Being born in a family that has been in the movie industry or music industry for a while makes it a lot easier for you to make a career for yourself following the same path as your parents. Growing up in front of the camera makes it all so palpable for you. Like you were born to be an actor since from the very beginning you have had the talent in your blood and you have seen how it all works out. The chance of you choosing another path is not non-existence but the chance of you pursuing the same career is something way more possible. Sometimes the offsprings of the celebrities end up being even way more popular than their parents. Here is a list of them.
