    Jab Main Chota Bacha Tha

    By Staff

    Urmila Matondkar

    Many people mistake Urmila's debut as a child artist to be Shekhar Kapur's Masoom (1983). It actually was Shyam Benegal's Kalyug (1980). Interestingly in her debut film, Urmila didn't play a girl but a boy. She played the son of Raj Babbar and Rekha and was named Parikshit.

    In Masoom she became a popular face as the eldest of the kiddo trio. Her song 'Lakdi Ki Kathi' is still one of the most popular children songs. Jugal Hansraj (another popular child artist) who played her kid brother in Masoom, was subsequently paired opposite Urmila in his male lead debut film Aa Gale Lag Jaa. Nobody has a clue of the third sibling who was the cutest amongst all in Masoom.

    In 1987 Urmila played Sunny Deol's younger sister in Dacait. More than a decade later she was paired opposite Sunny in his film Dillagi (1999).

    So which was Urmila's debut film as the female lead? No, it wasn't Rangeela. It was N. Chandra's Narsimha (1991).

    Aftab Shivdasani

    He played the younger role of two of the best Indian actors - Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. Aftab started with Mr. India (1987) (it also starred choreographer-director Ahmed Khan as a child artist). Subsequently he did many films like Shahenshah, ChaalBaaz, Awwal Number, C.I.D. and Insaniyat before making his grown up debut in Ram Gopal Varma's Mast.

    Hrithik Roshan

    The craze of the nation was a born actor. As a 6-year-old, he made his debut in his father's film Aap Ke Deewane (1980) and his grandfather directed film Aasha (1980). But he got a big chunk of role in Bhagwan Dada (1986), which was again directed by his grandfather and starred his father in one of the lead roles. But he wasn't related to Rakesh Roshan in the film. On the contrary, he played the adopted son of Rajnikanth who played the title character.

    Hrithik got a meaty role in Bhagwan Dada where he shared screen space with Rajnikanth and Rakesh Roshan in many scenes. He also danced with Sridevi in a song. Last but not the least; he also had a death sequence where he emoted well.
