Children’s Day calls for keeping aside your reservation and giving way for the child within you. To open up and unleash the warm and simple essence of childhood. Like us every Bollywood actor too has a child within. Let’s travel back and sneak a peek into the the childhood of few actors.
Aamir Khan has a couple of early appearances as a child actor thanks to his producer-father Tahir Hussain. He appeared first in Madhosh, before that memorable role as a younger Tariq in Yaadon Ki Baaraat.
It does help if your father is a popular actor, producer and director, as you get to learn about being involved in the process of film-making so early. Hrithik Roshan did just, as he appeared as a child actor in his home production, Bhagwan Dada, where he appeared as Rajinikanth’s son. We have to say, what a start!

Like his maamu, even Imran Khan started off as a child actor. in his case, he played Aamir Khan’s junior self in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar.
Bobby Deol has the luck of wearing that strange tunic when he played his father’s younger self in the superhit film, Dharam Veer.
