Bollywood has been an abode for talented people from all spheres. Some of them are from a family where acting runs in the blood while for some celebrities, carving a niche for themselves becomes a very challenging thing.
We often see celebrities who have had a close association with Bollywood and various controversy lovers call their work promotion of nepotism. While there are ones who have seen their parents in the same profession, there are those who are not from the usual filmy background.
I have a list of some popular celebrities whose parents had nothing to do with Bollywood yet they were not ordinary before entering the world of glitz and glamour.
Come, let's check the special thing out.
Ranveer made his debut with Anushka Sharma, and back then people thought he had no connection in Bollywood, but... but... but...
Ranveer's father is a wealthy businessman, and he is none other than Jagjit Singh Bhavnani. Also, Ranveer's paternal grandfather and Sonam Kapoor's maternal grandmother were siblings. Which makes both of them distant siblings.
Sonal is known for her role in the film Jannat. Little did we all know that she belongs to a royal Rajput family of Manipur, Uttar Pradesh.
Aditi is a lovely and graceful actress. She has been lucky enough to be born with two royal lineages of J. Rameshwar Rao, the Raja of Wanaparthy. She's also the grandniece of Muhammad Saleh Akbar Hydari who was the former governor of Assam.
Not many of us know, but even this beauty who has simply refused to age is also a part of a royal family. Bhagyashree's father is Vijay Singhrao Madhavrao Patwardhan. He was the Raja of Sangli in Maharashtra.
Recently, this gorgeous Aisha girl was in the limelight for her grand Sabyasachi wedding. Amrita is not an ordinary girl, she had no connection with Bollywood before making her debut but her father Aditya Puri is the Managing Director of HDFC bank.
Deepika Padukone is a perfect example of a self-made successful lady in Bollywood and her father, Prakash Padukone, has been a sports celebrity.
Famous director and wife of Aamir Khan, Kiran belongs to the royal family of J. Rameshwar Rao who was the Raja of Wanaparthy, Mahabubnagar district, Telangana.
Riteish Deshmukh also entertained us with his comic roles and tried romance as well on screen. His father Late Vilasrao Deshmukh was the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra, and he passed away on August 14, 2012.
That's all, people.
