Recently, Sunny Deol revealed that he would like to direct his elder son in his first film and of course, he is not the first star father to express such a desire.
From the 70s to 2000, film makers like Raj Kapoor right until Rakesh Roshan have chosen to direct their sons for the very first time because they truly believed they could do it better than anyone else.
Rakesh Roshan, who is one of the leading film makers of this country, struck pay dirt when he decided to direct his light-eyed son Hrithik in Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai 2000 and backed by superhit songs and Hrithik’s novel dance moves, it became one of the biggest hits of the year.
The movie that rewrote Box Office history gave Bollywood one of the most saleable stars.
Since then, every time the Roshans collaborated, they have consistently delivered a bigger hit than the last. Koi Mil Gaya in 2003, Krrish in 2006 and Krrish 3 in 2013 made Hrithik Bollywood’s first onscreen superhero.
