It’s not an easy task being away from the arch lights if you the child of a famous celebrity, especially in Bollywood. And it would seem the natural choice for the kids to take up the same profession as their parents since that is what they have been exposed to most of their lives as well as gained immense knowledge about it. However not all who are born into Bollywood families want to enter it or face the camera. There are some who carve a niche for themselves in other areas and are happy to stay away from the limelight. Let’s take a look at some of these daring star kids who have not taken the easy route but paved their own way and careers.
- Anshula Kapoor
The daughter of producer Boney Kapoor, Anshula has been quite inclined academically since a young age and always kept herself away from Bollywood. Even though her brother Arjun Kapoor is an actor she was never tempted by the glitz of Bollywood. She has apparently had a successful career with Google and also has her own fundraising platform online.
- Saba Ali Khan
Born into the royal Patuadi family and of course daughter of legendary yesteryear actress Sharmila Tagore, Saba Ali Khan has always kept away from the media glare and is only visible during important events and family weddings. She is a successful jewelry designer with a diploma at the Gemological Institute of America.
- Ira Khan
Daughter of one of the most talented and sort after actors of Bollywood Aamir Khan, Ira has never been bitten by the acting bug. It is reported that at one point some directors wanted her to debut in their film but she has refused and preferred to stay behind the camera instead. She has directed a theatrical play named Medea last year and wants to stick to filmmaking rather than acting.
- Ahana Deol
The daughter of two of the most well known and popular Bollywood actors Hema Malini and Dharmendra, Ahana Deol was almost born with a silver spoon. She had it all laid out for her if she ever wanted to join the world of cinema, but she flatly refused. The pretty Deol sister of actress Esha Deol quietly got married to her boyfriend Vaibhav Vohra and gave birth to three children; a son and a pair of twin girls.
- Sana Pancholi
Daughter of actor Aditya Pancholi, Sana Pancholi wanted to act and enter Bollywood at one point of time but seems like destiny had other plans for her. She is now of the opinion that the kind of movies that are made today are just not for her and she has comfortably slipped into her restaurant business in Goa.
