Daddies' little superstars

Like father. Like son? Sure! But not always. In Bollywood, daughters, too, rebel to get an equal opportunity of carrying on their daddy's rich legacy in the make-believe world of films.

So, while, Karisma and Kareena Kapoor have richly contributed to the illustrious 'Kapoor' surname, Raj Babbar's dainty offspring, Juhi didn't get so lucky.

And now with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya hitting the screens on November 9, all eyes are on the apple of Anil Kapoor's eyes, Sonam. takes a look at Bollywood's high-profile baap-beti jodis.

Anil Kapoor-Sonam Kapoor

Not many can boast of a oeuvre like Anil Kapoor's. Over a span of more than three decades, the versatile actor has delivered solid performances from Woh Kaun Thi, Ram Lakhan, Mr India, Tezaab, Parinda, Lamhe, Virasat, Taal and Pukar.

He may look dashing enough to romance young stars like Bipasha Basu and Katrina Kaif. Off screen, he plays dad to 21-year-old Sonam.

Daddy Kapoor is now delighted to see his cherubic daughter work with the cream of the crop. Even as her Saawariya, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, co-starring Ranbir Kapoor, is all set to release, Sonam has signed on Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Delhi 6 opposite Abhishek Bachchan.

Clearly, one can expect a lot of promising things from this Rapunzel-haired beauty.
