Showbiz & Celebrity Aug 17, 2018

With the next gen of stars snapping lead roles in today’s big cinematic productions, we can’t help but go down memory lane, looking back at when today’s Bollywood icons were just getting started! 

It’s that time in Bollywood when star kids are making their big screen debut. We are referring to Sridevi’s oldest daughter Jhanvi Kapoor who recently made her debut alongside Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khatter in Dhadak. 

Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan will also be making her debut with Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh, which is slated for a December release.

So with young starlets spreading their wings B-wood style, we take a look at some of the Bollywood icon’s debut films.

 

Shah Rukh Khan
King Khan made his big screen debut in 1992 with Deewana. Before that, he was on the small screen doing TV series like Fauji. He has since completed over 80 Bollywood films, and he’s still our favourite.
