Darsheel Safary, Harshaali Malhotra, Sana Saeed: When child actors stunned with their massive transformations
When it comes to impeccable acting, age really is no bar, and Bollywood has always encouraged talent from across age groups. Some child actors have, over the years, left an indelible mark on the industry with their flawless talent and cute presence. However, when these children grow up and return to the industry as adult actors, the first thing that the audience marvels about is just not much they’ve changed. Here we check out how some famous child actors look now…
Remember the cute little boy Ishaan from ‘Taare Zameen Par’? While he might not be very active on social media, much like his co-star Aamir Khan, he recently created a storm on the internet with a shirtless picture showing off his chiselled physique, to announce his upcoming film. From an impish child, Darsheel has now transformed into a charming man.
The little Munni from ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ who charmed everyone with her cute antics, is now a teen. While her birthday pictures went viral this year, it’s also her dancing videos and acting videos on Instagram that keep her fans wondering ‘Munni toh badi ho gayi!’
Sanjana Sanghi who completed 10 years in the industry today made her debut as Mandy in the film ‘Rockstar.’ She is currently a popular face in B-Town. Her classy fashion choices also set her apart from the rest of the debutantes.
Sana Saeed landed her first film at the age of 8 with Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’. The little Anjali went on to star in Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year’. She once told ETimes, “It feels great that people recognize you after so many years. I feel a lot of gratitude that I got an opportunity to play such an important character at such a young age. And I was so small I never knew that a role like that could go down in history. It makes me very humble and a lot of fun also because I feel like ‘wow! People still recognize me from when I was 8 years old (laughs)’. And every weekend almost, the film is still on TV, so nobody has really forgotten about it”
Hansika Motwani went from being a bubbly little girl in Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Koi…Mil Gaya’ to one of the most stylish actors in the South industry. She took her fans by a surprise when she debuted in Himesh Reshammiya’s film ‘Aap Kaa Surroor’ at the age of 18.
