Being a star kid is not easy. You are in the limelight right since birth, the media eyes your every move, you are constantly compared to your parents and the audience has extremely high expectations of you. While these are the cons, there are also some good pros of being a star kid; for instance, you are born with a silver spoon, the world already knows about you without having to put any effort and not to forget, you are already ruling over social media. However, the biggest advantage of all is a direct entry into Bollywood.
