Bollywood, as we know it, has always been home for new, fresh talents coming in from every corner of the country. While some celebrities are born in families where acting runs in the blood, some others have to literally make their way into the glamour world, which eventually, becomes very difficult.
While there are ones who have followed the footsteps of their parents and walked into the world of Bollywood, there are also those who are not from the usual filmy background. Here, I present to you a list of popular celebrities whose family had nothing to do with Bollywood. However, they were not at all ordinary before entering the world of glamour and grace.
1. Ranveer Singh
Ranveer made his debut with Anushka Sharma. Back then, people actually thought that he had no connection in Bollywood. BUT, Ranveer’s father, a very famous businessman, Jagjit Singh Bhavnani, is an extremely wealthy man. To add to it, Ranveer’s Paternal Grandfather and Sonam Kapoor’s maternal grandmother were siblings. Which actually makes the two young actors distant siblings, right?
2. Sonal Chauhan
Ever since the release of Jannat, Sonal has been known for that. However, little did we know that she belongs to a Royal Rajput family of Manipur, Uttar Pradesh.
3. Aditi Rao Hydari
Aditi personifies beauty and grace. Well, she was lucky enough to be born with two absolutely royal lineages of J. Rameshwar Rao, the Raja of Wanaparthy. Also, she is the grandniece of the former governor of Assam, Muhammad Saleh Akbar Hydari
Very few actually knows about Bhagyashree. This beautiful, beautiful woman who literally never ages, also belongs to a Royal family. Vijay Singhrao Madhavrao Patwardhan is Bhagyashree’s father. Just in case you have not heard his name, he was the Raja of Sangli in Maharashtra.
5. Amrita Puri
Lately, this gorgeous girl, Aisha was in the limelight for her grand Sabyasachi wedding. Amrita, let me tell you, is not an ordinary girl. She had no connection with Bollywood before making her debut. However, ber father, Aditya Puri is the Managing Director of HDFC bank.
6. Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone, perhaps, is a perfect example of a self-made successful lady in Bollywood and her father, Prakash Padukone, has been a sports celebrity.
