Hrithik Roshan to Ranbir Kapoor, Brilliant Actors who are Products of Nepotism

In the last few years, there have been constant debates going around about nepotism in Bollywood and its effects on real talent. Well, nepotism indeed exists in Bollywood just like it exists in various other fields also. There have been actors who were products of nepotism who are brilliant actors too. Here is the list of a few products of nepotism who are brilliant actors and we shall thank nepotism for that.

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan is one of the leading stars of India who made his debut with the superhit movie Qayamat se QayamatTak.

Aamir Khan’s father Nasir Hussain was a famous film producer and his uncle Tahir Hussain was also a film producer. Aamir Khan made his debut with Qayamat se QayamatTak directed by Mansoor Khan who is his cousin. So, there is no doubt that Aamir Khan got a chance in movies because of his family background but it does not mean that Aamir Khan has no talent of his own. He is considered as one of the best actors in India who gave many iconic movies to us like Lagaan, DilChahta Hai, Rang De Basanti, TaareZameen Par,3Idiots,Dangal and the list will go on. Aamir Khan is proof that nepotism is not necessarily a bad thing every time.

Ajay Devgn 

Ajay Devgn is the son of famous stunt director VeeruDevgan and he made his debut in Bollywood with PhoolaurKaante.

Ajay Devgn debuted in 1991 with PhoolaurKaante directed by Kuku Kohli. The movie was a smash hit and Ajay Devgn even received the Filmfare Award for Best Debut (Male) that year. It’s true to an extent that Ajay Devgn got his first break because of being from a filmy background but it does not take away the fact that Ajay Devgn is a brilliant actor. He is one of the very few mainstream actors who is a two times National Award winner and he proved his ability as an actor with his brilliant performances in movies like  Zakhm, Company, Hum Dil De ChukeSanam, Gangajal, The Legend of Bhagat Singh, etc.

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan is the son of actor-director-producer Rakesh Roshan and he made his debut with Kaho Na Pyaar Hai directed and produced by Rakesh Roshan. 

Hrithik Roshan became an instant star after the release of his first movie Kaho Na Pyaar Hai which was a blockbuster and Hrithik Roshan won all major awards for both Best Actor and Best Debut, a feat no one achieved before him. Though Hrithik Roshan hails from a filmy background, he is one of the top stars even after twenty years of his debut because of his talent and not because of his background. He gave stellar performances in movies like Koi Mil Gaya, Lakshya, Jodha-Akbar, Guzaarish, Super 30, and many more.

Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor hails from the illustrious family of Kapoors regarded as the first family of Bollywood as Ranbir Kapoor is the fourth generation actor in his lineage.

Ranbir Kapoor is known for his acting talent and not for his filmy background. Of course, he is from a filmy family but it does not change the fact that he is an amazing actor which he proved with movies like Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year, Rockstar, Barfi, and Sanju. Many regard him as one of the best actors of this generation and that is very true to an extent.
