Happy birthday to Sonakshi Sinha.
The viewers wish happy birthday to Sonakshi Sinha on 2nd June, 2015. Sonakshi Sinha, the daughter of renowned bollywood actor Shatrughun Sinha had started her acting career with the bollywood film Dabanng opposite Salman Khan. The big question that comes in the minds of many viewers is that whether there is any future of her in the industry.
Before considering her potentiality, the careers of noted actors and actresses can be looked at. While the sons of legendary actor Dharmender, namely Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol, and the son of Showman Raj Kapoor, namely Rishi Kapoor, and in the third generation Ranbir Kapoor, had got equal success like their fathers, there is a line of actors and actresses who had not achieved the desired stardom.
Hema Malini ruled bollywood films during the 70s. She was associated with biggest bollywood hits of that age including Jugnu, Sholay, Seeta Aur Geeta, etc. But her daughter Esha Deol had an average career so far. Same is the case of Tanuja’s daughter Tanisha. Although Kajol was successful, Tanisha could not reach stardom.
Fardeen Khan’s stardom is nowhere compared with Stylish actor Feroz Khan, while Tushar Kapoor had not been a match to Jeetender. Even Abhishek Bacchan when compared with the success of Big B, looks a mediocre, who had hit films but is not the ruler of bollywood.
The biggest challenge that is faced by the sons and daughters of stars is the comparison that is made with their fathers of mothers. The viewers see their performance with the mindset that they will have the same qualities as that of their star parents. In some case, they have their individuality, in other cases where they try to imitate their parents, the viewers never accept it.
Keeping that in mind Sonakshi Sinha also has a very strong challenge to rise up to the occasion. She had remained successful as a model. But if the fate of other star daughters are seen in the recent times (Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam Kapoor is still struggling), Sonakshi Sinha will have a monumental task to get acceptance from the viewers.
Sonakshi Sinha’s films opposite Salman Khan had always been super hit. Both Dabaang and Dabaang 2 became blockbuster. Sonakshi Sinha’s films opposite Ajay Devgan in Son of Sardar and Akshay Kumar in Rowdy Rathore became smash hits. But she faced failures also. Her film Lootera and Action Jackson bombed at box office. The viewers can wish her good luck in the film Akira.
