The Bombay filmdom was never averse to the stepping of the star sons and daughters into the shoes of their illustrious fathers or mothers. Thus, we had Rishi Kapoor following the example of his father Raj Kapoor, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol following Dharmendra, Saif Ali Khan following Sharmila Tagore, Twinkle Khanna emulating Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia, Kajol aping Tanuja and Karishma Kapoor following Randhir Kapoor and Babita.

However, the advent of the new millennium witnessed the entry of sons and daughters of Bollywood stars with such a great momentum like it was never seen before. Hrithik Roshan, son of Rajesh Roshan, started this renewed trend by taking the filmdom with a storm with his mega-hit Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. He was soon followed by Abhishek Bachchan, who was launched along with Kareena Kapoor by J.P.Dutta in his big budget film Refugee. Abhishek already has several other films in the pipeline like Bas Itna sa Khwab Hai, Dhai Akshar Pyar Ke, Tera Jadoo Chal Gaya and Aryan. There are other star kids waiting at the doorsteps to be launched into the glamour world of Bollywood.

The list includes Vinod Khanna's son Rahul, Hema Malini's daughter Esha Deol (Koi Mere Dil Se Puchche), Feroz Khan's son Fardeen (Jungle), Rajesh Khanna's daughter Rinkie, Jeetendra's son Tushar Kapoor (Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai), Padmini Kolhapure's younger sibling Tejaswini (Paanch), Shilpa's Shetty's sister Shamita Shetty (Mohabbatein), Moon Moon Sen's daughters Riya and Rima, Tanuja's younger daughter Tanisha, the late Raj Kumar's daughter Rani Raj Kumar, director Yash Chopra's son Uday Chopra and Suresh Oberoi's son Vivek. Even in the field of direction and film production the star kids are not lagging behind. Jeetendra's daughter Ekta has already established herself as a successful producer and director. Gulzar's daughter Meghna and Javed Akhtar's son Farhan are joining the new breed of young and enterprising directors like Karan Johar. Going by the trends it appears that these new breed of star kids will rule the Bombay filmdom for a long time to come.
