Then & Now Pictures Of 11 Child Actors Who Are Now Popular Bollywood Celebrities!

I still remember how 'grown-up' I felt when I watched Sana Saeed aka baby Anjali from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai flirting with Varun Dhawan in Student of The Year. It's amazing how child actors and their characters become a part of our lives as we age. It is so hard to think about Emma Watson as a 29-year-old when I've grown up admiring the 11-year-old Hermoine Granger, but at the same time, it's exciting! 


Many Bollywood actors have amazed us with their characters on screen both as kids and adults. They were stars during their childhood days and they are stars now. Here are a few we can't stop admiring! 


1. Alia Bhatt

Considering his family background, Aamir was never a stranger to the film industry. He also appeared on screen at a young age. He was only eight when he was seen in two popular songs in Yaadon Ki Baaraat which was released in 1973. His last film Thugs of Hindustan may not have pleased his fans but he is still known as Mr Perfectionist in Bollywood. 


6. Fatima Sana Shaikh
