Raj Babbar Talks About Amitabh Bachchan’s Son’s And His Son’s Industry Failures

On Sunday on the last day of the 12th Khushwant Singh Literary Festival in Kasauli, veteran actor and politician Raj Babbar discussed the difficulties experienced by actors’ offspring in the film business. At the Kasauli Club, Babbar participated in a debate on the topic “Light, Camera, Action” with his daughter Juhi Babbar and son-in-law Anup Soni.

Raj Babbar addressed the challenges actors’ children faced when they pursued performing professions at a young age in his reflections on his experiences and observations from the 1980s.

He emphasized how these ambitious actors sometimes entered the field too early, before their facial expressions and maturity were completely formed. This hurried entry into acting resulted in failures and impeded their development as artists. Babbar noted that these young performers were neither children nor adults, which made it difficult for them to represent complicated roles convincingly.

Babbar compared the challenges experienced by his own son Arya Babbar when he first entered the film profession. In addition, he used the example of Abhishek Bachchan, the son of the great actor Amitabh Bachchan, who began his acting career too early and became predominantly known as his father’s son.

Babbar thought that these young performers’ career paths may have been different if they had waited till their looks and emotions had fully developed.

Raj Babbar discussed his initial reservations regarding his daughter Juhi Babbar pursuing acting. He had hoped she would make her studies a priority, get some acting experience, and possibly go overseas to school.

However, Juhi discovered a wonderful role model in her mother Nadira Babbar, a well-known theatrical performer. Raj Babbar noted that Juhi’s mother helped to develop and hone her acting abilities. After seeing her potential, he chose to assist her admission into the film business, despite his earlier desire for her to stay away from the performing profession.
