Bollywood, as an industry, is dominated by powerful filmi families who have been a part of Bollywood for a long time, including those who have been around since the time of its inception in 1899. So, no matter which side we are on when it comes to nepotism, there is no denying that most star kids do possess the skills and have proved themselves time and again, regardless of the killer start they got to their careers when they started out.
However, this got us thinking about these star kids making their on-screen debuts when it comes to sharing the screen-space with either or both of their parents.
With the release of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' last Friday, we saw Sonam and Anil Kapoor share the screen together, and we must say that despite Sonam's acting skills, it was rather refreshing to watch the father-daughter duo in action on the big screen. The kind of dynamics they share off-screen found its way in front of the camera, and we have to admit we liked what we saw.

Their journey together as AB Sr. and AB Jr. started with 'Bunty Aur Babli' in 2005, which was followed by 'Sarkar', 'Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna' and then 'Paa' in 2009, with a special appearance in 'Shootout At Lokhandwala' as well.2. Rishi, Neetu & Ranbir Kapoor

When 'Besharam' released in 2013, its USP was that the Kapoors were all going to share the screen together as a family on-screen too. Though the film didn't do that well commercially, it was great to see the family together on-screen.3. Soni Razdan & Alia Bhatt

'Raazi' saw the mother and daughter come together in front of the camera, and we loved to see them bring their relationship on-screen as much as we love them off it.4. Pankaj Kapoor & Shahid Kapoor

'Shaandaar' was almost a family reunion on-screen for the Kapoors with Pankaj, Shahid and Sanah Kapoor coming together for this movie.5. Dharmendra, Sunny & Bobby Deol

This father-and-son Jodi has entertained us one too many times, and we loved watching them make us laugh and cry with their antics in 'Yamla Pagla Deewana', 'Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se' and 'Apne'.
