It is said that being a celebrity kid helps you build your Bollywood career. Well this doesn't hold true as your talent and luck defines it all. Being a star kid is just an added benefit. There are many Bollywood actors who have really famous celebrity parents, but their kids have failed to make it big in the industry.
For example, Raj Babbar is one of the talented veteran actors who has worked in many hit films-Nikaah, Aaj Ki Aawaz, Insaaf Ka Taraazu to name a few. However, his son Prateik Babbar failed to make a mark in the Bollywood industry. Prateik Babbar tried his luck in many Bollywood movies but even after playing lead and side roles, the celebrity kid failed to impress the audience.
Some celebrity kids like Tanisha Mukherjee also tried her luck to stay in the industry but she failed to make it big like her mother Tanuja and sister, Kajol. Tanuja was one of the most popular veteran stars of Bollywood. Her elder daughter Kajol has ruled the industry in 90s. However, Tanuja's younger daughter Tanisha tried a lot and even her star family helped to build her career, but the actress failed to impress the audience.
