It’s true at times you may feel envious of those around you born with a silver spoon, or a life-plan laid out for them. Not all of us are born in business lineage families, whether it’s IT sector, business big-shots, Bollywood or Cricket. But when you’d put Alia Bhatt in the picture, although she may be a product of Nepotism, she’s proved her talent on the big screen by performing diverse roles as chalk is from cheese and succeeding in the same. However, are you sure this nepotism wand charms every human born with it? Let’s take a look at people who’d convince you otherwise:
1. Abhishek Bachchan
For the son of the legendary Big B of Bollywood, you can understand how high the expectations were from Abhishek Bachchan. It’s almost impossible to believe for a man with genes of Big B, and an equally proficient actor mother, Jaya Bachchan, has not delivered a performance on the big screen memorable enough to etch itself into public memory. However, you could say it’s his family’s legacy that continues to help him thrive in the Bollywood industry, reappearing on the screen every once with a while.
2. Rohan Gavaskar
India’s cricket idol Sunil Gavaskar brought a revolution in batsmanship, his historic career shines upon his 10,000+ runs in Test matches, and he was also a part of India’s 1983 World Cup-winning team. A man who’s has an illustrious career, it’s bound to have more expectations from his son, Rohan Gavaskar. Although he has played 11 One Day Internationals and 2 matches for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, he failed to live up to the country’s expectations.
3. Esha Deol
Father, mother, and half-siblings as actors, it’s equally difficult to digest that Esha Deol hasn’t made it big in the industry. Her debut film Koi Mere Dil Se Pooche in 2002, may have bagged her a Filmfare Debut Award, a breakthrough in her career with Dhoom, her career stands still at the moment.
4. Stuart Binny
Son of Roger Binny, who was a part of 1983 World Cup’s winning squad, has also disappointed many cricket fans across the country despite his repeated opportunities to play for the Indian team, he now plays in the Indian Premier League. You still think to have a successful father figure creates a big impact on your career?
5. Tushar Kapoor
Although having Jitendra as his father, and the queen of daily soap opera – Ekta Kapoor as his sister, Tusshar Kapoor has eventually found the mute character in the Golmaal franchise apt for himself. His debut, Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai, opposite Kareena Kapoor managed to fair well at the box office, however, it failed to lay a strong foundation for the man to build his career. You still think getting a good movie, and winning the Filmfare award for Best Male Debut is all it takes to establish oneself in the Bollywood industry?
6. Nadeem Khan
Brother of a legendary Pakistani cricketer Moin Khan, Nadeem Khan is also a part of this club. A sibling with a successful career in the cricket industry who was a part of Pakistan’s national cricket team for more than a decade failed to shine upon his career of 2 ODIs and 2 Test matches.
There are living examples in the world today, who’ll prove it to you that this wand isn’t the only thing that’ll take you to your dreams. It’s you who’s blocking your journey to your dreams, all it’ll take is for you to realize that it’s all in your hands. Take your life in your control, and hustle your way to your ambition because these wands are not fail-proof, and there’s nothing you can’t achieve without one.
