Only if Bollywood’s first kid Aaradhya Bachchan turns out to be the next Miss Universe or Miss World, I will have my doubts cleared; otherwise she’s certainly the destiny’s child who was born with her decided fate in Bollywood industry. You see with parents Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, there’s very little that you have to do to struggle your way to make it big and Aaradhya is blessed with all of it and more. Though I’m still not sure whether she is actually born with inherited acting genes from her star mommy and grand parents!
As the most sought after star kid in Indian film industry turns one today, I wonder if directors would have already queued up outside Bachchan house to sign her as a child star in their films. Even if we look at the bigger picture and talk of some 16 years down the line when Aaradhya Bachchan would be all set to make her big Bollywood debut, things are going to be pretty much the same for her as they are now. Paparazzi still would be crazy to capture her in the lens and she would continue to enjoy the stardom of being Bollywood’s first kid.
Sounds quite similar to how Aaradhya’s star dad Abhishek Bachchan started off his journey in Bollywood. Look through Junior B’s career spanning over a decade now and you’d realize he doesn’t even belong to this industry. With average looks and barely any acting skills, Abhishek is just not actor material. Maybe it’s only because he was born to superstar Amitabh Bachchan and thought he could carry forward his father’s legacy he entered films. Otherwise, out of 55 odd films that Ahishek has acted in, barely 10 of them have succeeded in being called as ‘hits’ including movies like Dhoom, Guru, Bunty Aur Babli, Dostana, Sarkar, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna to name a few. Not a great career graph!
So will Aaradhya Bachchan follow her father’s footsteps too and enjoy easy fame in Bollywood, if at all she joins films. Too early to say but certainly she will make it big wherever she goes with marginal or no efforts at all. Even if that means giving a series of Box office flops in the beginning like father Abhishek Bachchan, I don’t see that making any difference in her popularity quotient – for it’s not a joke if you are born in the Bachchan family. You indeed are really lucky little Aaradhya Bachchan. Wish you a very happy birthday!!!
