Everything about the Indian film industry is strange and mysterious. Half siblings and the families behind them are part of this strange and alluring world. From the Khans to the Kapoors, every major Bollywood family is riddled with multiple marriages and multiple children. Today, we take a look at seven such families in the industry!
1. The Deols
The Deols have been synonymous with some amazing films since their entry into the Bollywood world. However, did you know, the Bobby Deol and Sunny Deol have half siblings? Dharmendra was married to Prakash Kaur before being married to Hema Malini! Through his second marriage, Dharmendra has two children, Esha Deol and Ahaana Deol. While the relationship between the siblings is not clear and rumour is, the brothers missed Esha Deol’s marriage. Methinks all is not well with the Deol siblings, right?
2. The Bhatts
Remember the Cinderella story, where the stepsisters are nothing short of evil witches? The Bhatt sisters, Alia and Pooja, remind us that this does not have to be the case. Mahesh Bhatt had two children from Soni Razdan – Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt and from his marriage to Kiran Bhatt, he had two children, Pooja Bhatt and Rahul Bhatt! The Bhatt siblings, despite being step, share a bond which is strong!
3. The Kapoor Khandan
Boney Kapoor is known for being an amazing actor and director. However, only a few knew about his children from his first marriage. Celebrated actor Arjun Kapoor and his sister Anshula are the product of Boney Kapoor and his first wife, Mona Shourie Kapoor. Jhanvi and Khushi are his children from his current wife, Sridevi. Unlike the Bhatts, this family does not have a happy merger. The two sets of siblings are rarely ever seen together and the bitterness seems to have gone to a point where Arjun and Boney Kapoor have no interaction with each other.
4. The Other Kapoor Family
Bollywood’s ultimate chocolate boy, Shahid Kapoor, has three step siblings, Ishaan, Ruhan and Sana, who are Pankaj Kapoor’s children from his previous marriage with Neelima Azeem. This family is a happy one but and according to sources, the siblings love each other with no differentiation whatsoever!
5. The Pataudi Family
Saif Ali Khan has two children, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan, from his first wife, Amrita Singh and Taimur Ali Khan from his current wife, Kareena Kapoor Khan. This is a truly happy family with Sara and Ibrahim helping Saif and Kareena by looking after little Taimur whenever they can. Rumour is, the older siblings have even changed Taimur’s diapers! This is a big large Indian family!
6. The Dutt Family
Sanjay Dutt is infamous for a lot of things. However, a lot of people forget the amount of hard work he puts into keeping a family together and happy. Especially, one that has all the true trappings of a Bollywood love story gone wrong! Sanjay Dutt has a daughter, Trishala Dutt from a marriage to first wife, Richa Sharma. He also has two children, Iqra and Shahraan, with Maanyata! This family is always together and very happy giving us a picture of complete happiness at all times!
7. The Aamir Khan Family
Aamir Khan may be Mr. Perfectionist on the silver screen. At home, however, not so much. He started working early on and this seems to have disentangled him from his children, Junaid and Ira,he had with first wife Reena. However, now with Azad Rao his son with current wife Kiran Rao Aamir is working on making things better. He is also working towards getting the two families back on track! Aaww!
Bollywood families have a flair for the dramatic life and this is a clear example of just that! One of the reasons we love Bollywood so much is the drama is not just reserved for the screens!
Panipat – Kriti Sanon’s Role Details Out
Kriti Sanon is all set for her first venture into the period drama genre with the film Panipat. The details of her role in Panipat were recently revealed. Kriti Sanon will portray the role of Parvati Bai, who was the second wife of Sadashiv Rao. In the movie, Parvati Bai is a physician, who falls in love with Sadashiv Rao, played by Arjun Kapoor.
While speaking about her role, Sanon said, “My knowledge of history is terrible since I have never been fond of the subject. So for me, every word about the Battle of Panipat came from Ashu (Ashutosh) sir. Not too much is documented about Parvati Bai, so the character was built by Ashu sir in the way he visualised her. We had an amazing experience of finding the character. It’s a completely new world for me. Being a North Indian, it is a challenge to play a Marathi character, but Ashu Sir made it easy and very enjoyable.”
Sanon’s co star Arjun Kapoor made news for going bald and losing weight to prepare for his role as the Maratha warrior. This will also be Kapoor’s first period film and will see Kapoor and Sanon sharing screen space for the first time.
Panipat is a historical film based on the third battle of Panipat. Directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar, the movie stars Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon in pivotal roles. The movie is slated to release on December 6th 2019.
Bollywood Celebrities In World’s Most Admired List
According to an annual report released by YouGov, a UK based market research company, Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone are the most admired Indian actor and actress in the world.
Big B, who was also a part of the World’s Most Admired list last year, fell down 3 ranks and is at the 12th spot in 2019. Accompanying Big B are two of Bollywood’s biggest stars, Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) and Salman Khan. SRK and Salman, who are both new entrants to the list, are ranked 16th and 18th respectively.
Indian actresses shone in the Top 20 Most Admired Women’s list, with actresses Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Sushmita Sen and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan making the cut. Deepika was ranked 13th and was followed by Priyanka Chopra in the 14th position. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was ranked 16th, 5 spots below her position last year. Former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen was ranked 17th.
The list was released by YouGov, which gathered a panel of people from across 41 countries and took open ended nominations by asking the panelists “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?” Based on the list of the 20 men and 20 women who received the most nominations, YouGov then conducted a poll. The respondents were asked two questions—“Who do you truly admire?” and “Who do you MOST admire?” To answer the first question, the participants were allowed to make multiple selections. For the second question, the participants could pick only one name. According to the data collected by the survey, a list of the top 20 most admired men and top 20 most admired women was made.

The 3 minute trailer begins with Akshay Kumar’s voice, “There is no science without experiment.” The trailer introduces us to a group of scientists from different backgrounds and their determination to launch the Mars Orbiter Mission.
In an earlier tweet, Akshay revealed, the real reason behind him choosing to work on Mission Mangal is to familiarise his daughter with the incredible story of India’s mission to Mars.
#MissionMangal , a film which I hope will inspire as much as entertain. A film which I’ve done specially for my daughter and children her age to familiarise them with the incredible true story of India’s mission to Mars! @FoxStarHindi #HopePictures #JaganShakti @isro pic.twitter.com/yMwkCPr2KR
— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) July 4, 2019
The tweet read “For several years, Hollywood made movies and TV shows like Star Trek, Star Wars, Gravity etc. This inspired an entire generation of inventors, scientists and explorers. I have always wanted to be part of one such movie… A movie that inspires our future generations… One that celebrates imagination and curiosity. Mission Mangal is that film for me… A film that I hope will inspire as much as it will entertain. Based on the incredible true story of India’s mission to Mars, Mission Mangal is a film about ordinary people achieving the extraordinary… A story that proves that creativity, ideas and dreams have no limit… just like the sky! This Independence Day, the sky is not the limit”
Mission Mangal is loosely based on the story of the scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and their contribution to the Mars Orbiter Mission. The movie stars Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and H.G. Dattatreya as the leads. The film is directed by Jagan Shakti and jointly produced by R. Balki, Akshay Kumar and Fox Star Studios.
Mission Mangal is all set to release on August 15th 2019 and will clash with the John Abraham starrer Batla House and the Prabhas starrer Saaho.
