Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger Shroff is making his acting debut in Bollywood with romantic drama ‘Heropanti’ directed by Sabir Khan. Tiger Shroff is well trained in martial arts and dancing and has already been projected as ‘the next star’ of the Bollywood by actors like Aamir Khan. In Bollywood star kids often find it easy to make their way into Bollywood by getting big budget movies but it is the paying public who decides their future. Several star-sons tried their luck in Bollywood, some came up with the flying colors while some eloped in the darkness with time after several attempts.
Lets take a look at some of the best star-sons debut where they made their way into our heart in their very first attempt.
After failure of Mera Naam Joker (1970), Raj Kapoor decided to make a fresh love story with new faces and he launched his son Rishi Kapoor along with Dimple Kapadia in romantic love story Bobby (1973). Raj Kapoor made several changes in his team as Laxmikant-Pyarelal composed the music for Bobby replacing Raj Kapoor’s regular composer duo Shanker-Jaikishan. Distributors were reluctant to buy the rights of Bobby as Raj Kapoor’s last movie Mera Naam Joker was a flop. Raj Kapoor distributed Bobby through his own film company R.K Studios . But Bobby became a blockbuster at the box office for its young and fresh take on the love story with clash between poor and rich. Bobby became a trendsetter and inspiration for the romantic movies like Love Story, Betaab and Maine Pyar Kiya in the years to come. Music composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal became very popular with songs like ‘Hum tum ek kamre mein bandh ho’ , ‘Main shayar toh nahin’, ‘Mujhe kuch kehna hai’ and ‘Beshak mandir masjid todo’ sung by newcomer Narendra Chanchal making him a singing sensation.
Rishi Kapoor became heartthrob of the nation and made impressive debut in the character of shy young boy Raj who falls in love with a poor girl and rebels to his parents opposition to his love. Rishi Kapoor won Filmfare Award of Best Actor for Bobby. Raj Kapoor changed the climax of Bobby where Raj and Bobby dies in the end and changed it with happy ending where Raj and Bobby got united in the end with their parents.
