Big directors, Bigger sonny hopes, Biggest flops

Stardom comes easy, if you are a son of a star. There is no struggle, no running behind directors or producers. The backup is provided by the fathers. Their first tryst with stardom, lots of advertisement, hype and publicity. The movies are released and then boom. Once bombarded at the box office, the producer suffers huge losses. There are so many actors who have such stories. Here’s a look at a few of them.
