Children are crazy about Bollywood films and Bollywood stars. The actors who have the most number of fans as kids are Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik Roshan even made series of movies for his small fans.
He started of with Koi Mil Gaya which had an alien in the movie and was loved by all the kids, next came the Krrish movie where he turns super-hero and in the third installment, super-hero meets his worst enemy and finally finishes him off saving the entire planet.
Hrithik Roshan's these three movies have been most loved by kids so much so that he even had Krrish dolls manufactured as a promotional gimmick. Even when his action movie Bang Bang also starring Katrina Kaif came out, in order to target his little fans he launched the Bang Bang android game which became a huge success among the kids as well.
Salman Khan has never acted in a children's movie but he is one of the most loved hero, his Kick movie too was dedicated to his kid fans and had a number of kids starring in it as well. Similarly Shahrukh's Ra.One movie garnered him these young fans as well and so recently he even went to the KidZania store in Mumbai and celebrated Children's day with different NGOs's that visited the store.
