10 Popular Bollywood Villains Of The 80s And Their Sons You Didn’t Know About
A villain is such an important character in a movie. Not only is it harder to be shown as a negative character, but we feel sorry for them, as they usually end up as losers in the end! However, there are some actors in Bollywood who were best at becoming the bad guys. It just came naturally to them. And while we have seen celebrity kids taking up the road to Bollywood, kids of these villains are unknown to the public eye. Here are 10 popular villains of Bollywood with their lesser known sons.
1. Mac Mohan and Vikrant Makijany
Little do we know that Mac Mohan had come to Bombay to become a cricketer and ended up becoming an actor. Most popularly known for his role as Samba, Mac Mohan married Minni and had two daughters and a son. His son Vikrant Makijany was last seen in the movie The Last Marble.
2. Dalip Tahil and Dhruv Tahil
At one point, Dalip Tahil was the epitome of villainous fathers, with his performances in Ishq, Baazigar, Raja, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and so on. His son Dhruv Tahil is an actor and a model based in London.
3. Kabir Bedi and Adam Bedi
One of the most handsome villains, the man aced his game with Khoon Bhari Maang and made us hate him for being so bad and so good looking at the same time! Bedi has married four times and his son from his marriage with Susan Humphreys, Adam Bedi is an international model. He made his Bollywood debut with Hello? Kaun Hai!
4. Amjad Khan and Shadaab Khan
Bollywood’s Gabbar, Amjad’s son, Shadaab had a short stint with Bollywood when he debuted with Rani Mukerji in Raja Ki Ayegi Baraat. Following the footsteps of his father, he too played a negative role of a Casanova.
5. Shakti Kapoor and Siddhanth Kapoor

6. Danny Denzongpa and Rinzing Denzongpa
With a film career spanning almost four decades, Danny has changed with times but still been a constant in Bollywood with films like Agneepath, Hum, Ghatak, Khuda Gawah and many international projects as well.

His son Rinzing, unlike his father, wants to do lead roles and is currently working on his body and is yet to make a debut.

Perhaps the nicest villains ever, Suresh Oberoi has played with both black and white roles. His son, Vivek has been on and off Bollywood with Great Grand Masti being his most recent performance.
8. M.B Shetty and Rohit Shetty

An Indian stuntmen and an action choreographer through the 60’s to the 80’s, no wonder, his son had to be Rohit Shetty. Rohit is a new age director known for films that bring action and adventure on a grand scale with movies like Golmaal, Chennai Express, and Dilwale.
9. Gulshan Grover and Sanjay Grover
