Nostalgia Alert! Take a Look At These Child Actors You Grew Up Watching

Some of the Bollywood movies were an integral part of our growing up years. They starred children of our age and the stories touched our hearts. These children grew up with us and as grown ups too, were part of some Bollywood movies. However, they grew up quite differently and became almost unrecognizable from their childhood versions.

Don’t believe us? Have a look at 15 such child actors below.


1. Jugal Hansraj

The little cutie pie from Masoom is hardly identifiable in movies like Papa Kehte Hain, Mohabbatein and the latest Kahaani 2.

2. Kinshuk Vaidya

We all wanted a pencil like his which made everything drawn by it become real! Sanju from Shakalaka Boom Boom is all grown up now and looks quite different.

3. Shweta Basu Prasad

The bubbly little girl singing “O Papad Waale’ in Makdee stole our hearts with her innocence. You wouldn’t believe what she looks like now though. FYI, She was there in Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya.

5. Sridevi

The Sridevi we last saw in Mom looks hardly anything like the little girl from Thunavian. Her sad demise has left her fans and family members mourning.

6. Kunal Khemu

The kid in Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke came a long way in the latest Golmaal Again. However he looks nothing like his childhood version now.


7. Aftab Shivdasani

From Mr.India to Mast, for a long time nobody knew he was the same actor. And we can see why!

9. Hansika Motwani

From TV series like Shakalaka Boom Boom  and movies like Koi Mil Gaya to now making it big in the South Indian film industry, Hansika looks nothing like her childhood self.

11. Sanjay Dutt

Sanju Baba of Munna Bhai and the recent Bhoomi looks very different from his childhood self in Reshma aur Shera. 

12. Hrithik Roshan

Named the ‘The Most Handsome Actor in The World’ this year, Hrithik looked nothing like that in his childhood in movies like Aasha and Bhagwaan Dada.


13. Sana Saeed

From Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’s beloved Anjali to Student of The Year’s hottie Tanya many did not know it was the same girl and find it difficult to identify her even now.


14. Aditya Narayan

Salman’s cute kid in Jab Pyaar Kisi se Hota Hai grew up to be quite different and good looking!

15. Malvika Raaj

The younger version of Poo in Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham turned out quite like her movie version in elder form, making her unidentifiable from her own childhood self.


Quite a trip down the yesteryears, wasn’t that?
