Nepotism in the past few years has become this hot topic for debate in and out of the industry. The infamous Kangana Ranaut and Karan Johar’s conversation at Koffee With Karan ignited this. Though it has died down since a few months, there were statements from actors in the industry who believed it was more about genes than nepotism. Well, we don’t know if genes can help with the talent or no but it definitely affects the looks and physical attributes of a person. And Bollywood is a pool of good-looking people whose parents’ genes have done them good. So, here we have listed 10 Bollywood stars who look like their parents. Have a look!
1. Saif Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan is a sharp looking Bollywood actor and a Nawab of Pataudi. He comes from a royal background and his appealing looks say nothing different. Saif Ali Khan’s son with his first wife, Amrita Singh is a young 17-year-old fellow who resembles a lot with his father and looks exactly like a young Saif.
2. Javed Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar
Javed Akhtar is a very talented writer and a lyricist whose contribution to Indian cinema is immeasurable. And his son is a notch ahead for he has inherited his talent for writing and is also the owner of several other talents like acting, direction among others. Not just the talents of his father, he also has the looks of the man. Both of them carry a very mysterious and a gentlemanly persona and look a lot like each other.
3. Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan
Hrithik Roshan is known as Bollywood’s Greek God and rightly so. His face cut and the light coloured eyes have made every other female Bollywood fan swoon over him. But some of the credit goes to his good-looking parents and mostly his father, Rakesh Roshan where he gets his look from. Rakesh Roshan was a famous Bollywood actor and now has been directing films for the past decade or so. Hrithik Roshan’s resemblance to his father is uncanny.
4. Shah Rukh Khan and Aryan Khan
Shah Rukh Khan, the King of Bollywood is a father to three young kids and his youngest son, AbRam Khan is media and camera’s favourite. Many have compared how AbRam looks a lot like baby Shah Rukh Khan but his eldest son, Aryan Khan wins this one because he is like a splitting image of his father. Not just his looks, he also carries a very similar super confident attitude like his father.
5. Neetu Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor
Ranbir Kapoor’s family, the Kapoor Khandaan has a long lineage of supremely talented and versatile actors from Prithviraj Kapoor to Rishi Kapoor. But the youngest in the family, Ranbir Kapoor has got his looks from his mother Neetu Kapoor who is also a veteran popular Bollywood actress. He is a momma’s boy and his chocolate boy looks agree with that.
6. Amrita Singh and Sara Ali Khan
Sara Ali Khan is Amrita Singh and her ex-husband Saif Ali Khan’s daughter. She has been in the news for some time now for soon, she will be making her Bollywood debut and by now, everybody is familiar with her. Though her brother, Ibrahim Ali Khan looks like his father, Saif, Sara Ali Khan is a carbon copy of her mother. Amrita is a Bollywood actress who last appeared in Flying Jatt as Tiger Shroff’s mother.
7. Sharmila Tagore and Soha Ali Khan
Another from the royal family to have an uncanny resemblance to her mother is Soha Ali Khan who looks exactly like a young Sharmila Tagore.

She shares her enigmatic beauty with her daughter, Soha Ali Khan who is popular for her roles in movies like Rang De Basanti, Khoya Khoya Chand etc.
8. Soni Razdan and Alia Bhatt
Alia Bhatt has proved her mettle so many times with her inexplicable acting prowess on-screen that she deserves every ounce of appreciation that comes her way. She is the daughter of the famous director-producer Mahesh Bhatt and that is how she was known when she entered the industry but she gets her cute looks from her mother Soni Razdan, who also had acted in several movies early in her days. In fact, Alia shared a photo on Instagram a little while ago saying that she looks like a carbon copy of her mother.
9. Babita Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor
Karisma Kapoor is probably the first woman from the Kapoor Khandaan to have made it this big in Bollywood. Her mother, Babita Kapoor was an actress before she married Randhir Kapoor but was never this famous. Karisma Kapoor took the fame to another level. Both she and Kareena are extremely beautiful and both of them get it from their mother but it is Karisma who looks more like her mother.
10. Sarika and Shruti Hassan
Sarika has graced many Bollywood movies back in the day and was a household name. Her beauty and facial features have always been appreciated by the fans and now her daughter, Shruti Hassan is appreciated for the same. She hasn’t had many hits in Bollywood but she has a flourishing career in the South Indian cinema. Both the mother-daughter duo look uncannily similar.
