Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan are hard to miss when talking about Bollywood father-son duos. It is one of the lovable duos of Bollywood. Following his daddy’s footsteps, Junior Bachchan entered Bollywood with the film ‘Refugee’ in 2000. However, being the son of Bollywood legend, life in the industry hasn’t always been a smooth sailing for Abhishek. Even though he has marked a niche for himself in this industry, it is hard for Abhishek to reach to his father’s level of success. “He is the institution of acting. First time I was very nervous to work with him. However, it’s okay now,” expressed Abhishek who has shared screen with his father in several hit films including ‘Bunty Aur Babli’, ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’, ‘Sarkar’ and ‘Paa’.

 “There was, is and will always be only one Amitabh Bachchan. No one can reach that level… and that is why he is called ‘Big B’”- Abhishek Bachchan     



Pankaj Kapur & Shahid Kapoor

Popular actor Pankaj Kapur is the proud father of Bollywood’s heartthrob Shahid Kapoor. Pankaj separated ways with wife Neelima Azeem when Shahid was just three but it did not affect the strong bond he shared with his son. Pankaj has always been Shahid’s guiding light. “We are quite similar in nature. I remember on the sets there were many times when I would finish my shot and look at him and he would smile and tell me ‘that’s exactly how I would do it,” Shahid shared in an interview.


Shatrughan Sinha & Sonakshi Sinha

This popular father-daughter duo needs no introduction to describe the special bond they share. Sonakshi is the apple of her daddy’s eye. Following her father’s steps, Sonakshi decided to step into the film industry. Despite criticism, the stunning actress marked her name as one of the top actresses of all times. She draws confidence from her dad. As a father, Shatrughan has always been supportive of his daughter’s aspirations. Like a true mentor, he has guided Sonakshi to perform better in both reel and real life. We hope to see the duo on screen together soon!


Rishi Kapoor & Ranbir Kapoor

Attractive looks, charming personality and immense talent!  We are speaking of the handsome father-son duo of Bollytown. Rishi Kapoor has enjoyed a huge female fan base since the beginning of his career and Ranbir is no different. With so many hits at the box office the actor has surely lived up to the expectation of ‘Kapoor khandan’. We guess talent runs in the family genes!



Anil Kapoor & Sonam Kapoor

Beautiful actress Sonam Kapoor has inherited her charm from father Anil Kapoor. This duo is undoubtedly glamorous! We totally admire the strong relation they share. Sonam is truly a ‘daddy’s girl’. Even after making a successful name in the industry, she loves to be identified as Anil Kapoor’s daughter. “I am very happy being known as Anil Kapoor’s daughter. It makes me feel proud. He is an amazing dad,” she shared to a national daily.
