These Celebrities Became More Successful Than Their Illustrious Parents

Kids often follow in the footsteps of their parents, when it comes to selecting their professions.

With all the talk of nepotism around us, and everyone pitching in with their two cents of opinion, we may have forgotten that to be successful in the long run, you need talent.

These 5 celebrities, from various fields, became more successful than their parents, who were from the same field. Let us have a look.

#1 Hrithik Roshan


Hrithik is undoubtedly more successful as an actor than his dad Rakesh Roshan was. Rakesh Roshan is now a successful producer-director, but his stint as an actor wasn’t all that great.

#2 Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi


MAK ‘Tiger’ Pataudi has an enviable list of accomplishments, but not many people know that his father, Nawab Pataudi also played cricket for India, but wasn’t as successful.

#3 Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor


Both Kareena and Karisma Kapoor had more successful careers than their parents Randhir Kapoor and Babita.

#4 Sonu Nigam


Agam Kumar Nigam struggled for many years to become a singer in Bollywood, but could never find a breakthrough. His son, however, is widely considered one of the most successful playback singers in Bollywood.

#5 Karan Johar


Yash Johar was well respected in the film industry, but his films were never hits, save for one or two of them. Karan Johar has built Dharma into an industry giant, on the other hand.

However, we must admit that the more common occurrence in this world is parents being more successful and their children not being able to live up to that.
