There’s a saying that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! And truly, this fact could be aptly related to the Bollywood film industry, where we often get to see sons and daughters of celebrity couples stepping into their parents’ shoes!

The list of such actors just goes on and we often relate to them through their parents. However, there are others who decided to pursue their own paths and responded to those callings, away from the glitzy tinsel town.
