2019 The Year Of More Star Kids



Where are  the  children  of  the lesser God?  You may well ask, as Bollywood was filled with spunky confident bright star-children in 2019. Not  one  noteworthy debutant  from outside the  industry.And  the status quo remains  unchanged in the coming  year.  A look at  the  star children waiting in the wings to wow  the world in the coming year.

1.     Khushi Kapoor: The  immortal  Sridevi  must be  smiling  from heaven.  First daughter Janhvi made her  well-received  debut  in Dhadak. Now it’s  younger daughter  Khushi’s turn.She will be launched  in all likelihood oppositeSaif and Amrita’s son Ebrahim by hawk-eyed  producer Karan  Johar. It’s  a promise  Karan made to Sridevi.

2.     Suhana Khan:  While  Shah Rukh  Khan’s son is apparently not keen on being an  actor daughter Suhana is training for   a career in  acting. Though it is not confirmed yet, it is likely that Karan  Johar will launch the  ‘Suhana’ safar.

3.     Sharmin Sehgal:  Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s  launch film Malaal  for his niece Sharmin Sehgal  is almost ready.The film is  directed by Mangesh Hadawale and  according to sources Bhansali has  spared  no expenses to ensure the project is as  lavish as  the ones he himself  directs.A thorough  artiste Bhansali  cannot be  accused of  nepotism  for  its  own sake. Says  the  director, “I wouldn’t launch my own daughter, if I had one,  if I didn’tsee  the spark in her.”

4.     Mizaan Jaffrey:  Another talent  from within the  film industry. Mizaan is the son  of actor-anchor Javed Jaffrey. He  has been chosen  to star opposite  Sanjay Bhansali’s niece Sharmin in Malaal. But his  role and his screen presence are in no way secondary to  the  female debutante. Mizaan is supposedly quite  a chip off the old block. Says a  source from  Bhansali productions, “Mizaan has the comic timing of his  grandfather Jagdeep the  dancing skills  of his fatherJaved and a screen presence that is all his own.”

5.     Ananya Panday:  Chunky Panday’s pretty daughter  is  being launched by Karan  Johar opposite Tiger Shroff inStudent  Of  The  Year 2. Considering what the first film in the campus franchise did  to Alia Bhatt’s career , great things are expected  from Ananya.

6.     Anmol Thakeria:  Actress Poonam Dhillon and producer Ashoka Thakeria’s son is being launched  by producerSanjay Bhansali in a film being  directed by  debutant Taranveer Singh. Anmol  apparently approached Bhansali all on his own without seeking to  use his parents’ name as  a calling card. Good  going,kid.

7.     Iulia Vantur:  Is she an outsider(from Romania, how much more of  an outsider  can a debutante  be?)  or is she  an  insider(Salman Khan’s khaas dost, how much more  of an insider can she get?). Is she  going to be  Mrs Khan soon? Gosh,  even her debut films title  has a question mark Radha Kyon Gori Main Kyon Kaala?

8.     Tara Sutaria: The lone  ‘outsider’ among the bevy of star-kids to be launched  in 2019, Tara  plays the poutyfemme  fatale in Student Of  The Year 2,  a la Rani Mukherjee in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.She could be the dark horse  of 2019.
