Khushi Kapoor’s new film with Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan is going to be one BIG Bollywood production
All hail KJo
With Boney Kapoor’s recent admission that his youngest daughter, Khushi Kapoor, had shifted her focus from modelling to acting, it was only a matter of time that we heard about her upcoming debut. Considering that she’s the daughter of the late superstar Sridevi and sister of debutante Janhvi Kapoor — whose first film Dhadak skyrocketed to success — we were expecting one big spectacle. And turns out, that’s exactly what director and producer Karan Johar is planning too.
According to recent reports, the young starlet will be starring opposite another celebrity kid who’s yet to make his debut… We’re talking about the heir apparent to King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan’s empire, Aryan Khan.
“Khushi will be launched sooner rather than later, and that too by Karan Johar. Karan’s taken over that responsibility from Boney. Though Khushi’s debut is being kept a well-guarded secret, they’ve already started looking for a suitable script,” the source said. The source added that the dream debut was being planned keeping Aryan in mind. “That’s Karan’s game plan. Let’s see how it goes,” they said.
The 20-year-old is an exact replica of his father, and we’re hoping apart from the good looks and genes, Aryan has also inherited SRK’s acting skills. Meanwhile, Janhvi has proven her mettle in Dhadak, so the odds are in Khushi’s favour. And knowing KJo — who’s successfully launched not only her sister, but also Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra and will soon be launching Ananya Pandey in Student of the Year 2 — we have a feeling that this is going to be one extravagant film with OTT elements.
10 star kids whose film debuts we can’t wait for:
Ahaan Panday is the son of Chikki and Deanne Panday, making him the nephew of Chunky Pandey. One look at his Instagram profile proves that Ahaan has Bollywood in his blood. He keeps his 133K followers entertained with Bollywood lip syncs and high octane dance moves, not unlike Ranveer Singh. His inner circle includes Shah Rukh's son while cousin Ananya Pandey, who is currently forming her own next-gen girl gang with Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor, also makes regular features on his Instagram. Ahaan also seems to have taken his future in the industry into his own hands by working on his body, his facial expressions and regularly brushing up on filmi trivia. If Ahaan Pandey is the future of Bollywood, we're here for it.
Janhvi and Khushi were all the internet could talk about after mom Sridevi posted pictures of them on a family vacation to her Instagram audience. The stylish sisters soon started popping up on everyone-who-is-anyone's social media feeds. The girls could be the next Lolo and Bebo, they already have the surname, not to mention the bag collection. They're also hanging out with Manish Malhotra while sporting his custom-made creations, not unlike the original Kapoor sisters. The two regularly set trends and are seen hanging out at Bollywood's hottest parties. With the paparazzi already watching their every move, it's time Khushi made her debut, since Janhvi's already proven her mettle with Dhadak.
Imagine having a dad so famous that you walk into a room and people already know who your parents are... That's right, Aryan Khan, heir apparent to King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan's empire, spends most of his time between Mumbai, London and California — where he is reportedly studying — away from the paparazzi's invasive lens. Aryan looks exactly like Shah Rukh Khan down to his pouty selfie face and messy hair. But his attitude seems to be in tune with the other next-gen actors of his generation. Aryan's Instagram account has cleaned up as of a year ago to mirror selfies and pictures with his mom, Gauri Khan. With currently only 19 posts on Instagram, the kid already has a 585k strong following and a verified profile. We can't wait to see what numbers he does on the first day at the box office.
Saif Ali Khan's daughter with his ex-wife Amrita Singh is already famous, and she doesn't even have a movie out. But that's expected when you're Bollywood royalty... and royalty in general. Sara has been spotted around cafes in Bandra frequented by Bollywood's actresses, she's been sporting Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla creations at A-list events and she's even been linked to other Bollywood stars. Naturally, she's also been spotted at parties with step-mom Kareena Kapoor and aunt Soha Ali Khan, attracting a fan following with her understated approach to red carpet beauty and fabulous taste in footwear.
Anurag Kashyap's daughter is all about street styling, but she's more Gangs of New York than Gangs of Wasseypur. Aaliyah Kashyap is besties with Khushi Kapoor and the two can be seen taking over most Instagram frames. From what we gather, Aaliyah is not too different from her dad and will probably end up being behind the camera rather than in front of it. She's only 16, so she probably won't be making any mobster movies but maybe a rom-com starring her best friends — think PG 13 Sex and the City.
These three ladies will probably make their debut alongside each other just because they seem to be inseparable. It's no surprise Shah Rukh Khan's daughter, Suhana's besties are both star kids. That's right, Ananya Pandey is none other than Chunky Pandey's daughter — all part of one big Bolly gang. Shanaya is Sanjay Kapoor's daughter which makes her first cousins with Khushi and Jhanvi Kapoor and also Sonam, Arjun and Harshvardhan Kapoor. That's right all these ladies have some serious lineage. With the paparazzi stalking their every move, they could be the next girl gang on the block. Let's not forget when Khushi and Jhanvi link up with them, they've got Kareena and Karisma's Valentino pumps to fill.
If it wasn't for that family photo which is a dead giveaway, one might wonder who Aarav Bhatia is. The offspring of Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna is the perfect balance of Bollywood genes. Aarav, however, keeps a low profile, like he may just spring his career on us tomorrow or never (But we really hope it's tomorrow). Aarav is athletic, we gather from Twinkle's Instagram. He also seems to spend a lot of downtime with the family and is almost averse to any form of media coverage. Aarav may be following in the footsteps of Tiger Shroff, in this sense. We'll just have to wait and see
