12 Bollywood stars as kids: Travel down the memory lanes

When we talk of the most beautiful actress of the B-town, our mind immediately goes to someone like Aishwarya Rai. When we look for the most kissable actress alive, we are instantly reminded of the suave rosy lips of Katrina Kaif. When we search for some leggy girls, Deepika Padukone and Shilpa Shetty strike our hearts and Madhuri Dixit rules the country when it’s about the most killer smile.

But, have you ever thought of our Bollywood actresses as anything other than the glam dolls or power-packed performers? Though, the industry houses a number of good-looking actors ranging from the hunky strong-bodied ones to the chocolaty boyish guys, have you ever laid your eyes on your favourite stars when they were merely toddlers? Gals are going to swoon and drool as this special list features some of the best looking things the world has ever seen. We present you your favourite Bollywood celebrities the way they looked when they were still in their nappies or half-pants.

Shahrukh Khan

It’s really hard to think of SRK as anything other than the romantic heart throb that he is today. But if you just take a time turner and go back by a few decades, you will be amazed to find that the same effervescent, witty and action-packed superhero was a little child with a cute, curious mind. The twinkle and mischief in those little eyes can be seen till today. And this childhood pic of his proves that King Khan was always a proud flaunter of a terrific hairstyle. Yes, his height may have increased over the years but even as a scampering kid running hither & thither, Shahrukh seemed to suggest, “Mujhko ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, naamumkin hai.

Amitabh Bachchan

It may be impossible to believe that our ‘Big B’ was once a little B. Born in the pre-independence era, Amitabh’s childhood pictures have a lot to do with traditional Indian attire and posing as a freedom fighter. Perhaps, it is the fighting spirit of the child Amitabh that surfaced years later when the ‘Shehenshah’ fought his way out of a deadly accident that occurred during the shooting of ‘Coolie.’ Mr. Bachchan looks extremely cute & endearing in his childhood pic.

Aishwarya Rai

Aishwarya Rai is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most beautiful women to grace the Earth. In the prime of her youth, she looked ethereally beautiful but her colourful personality was there to be seen even during her earlier years. As a child, she was an epitome of grace & élan though, one must admit, that she wasn’t as stunning as she later turned out to be. Her chirpy, pretty face was well complemented with a tinge of baby chubbiness and with short hair, she, sometimes, even filled the description of a tomboy. Time only magnified this subtle prettiness into a captivating look that brought her the Miss World pageant in 1994.

Salman Khan

Ah, the bad boy of Bollywood was always an impish type and more so during his hay days. His childhood pic highlights his outgoing personality, an ever-smiling face and a rich mane of hair. Of course, the body was not as chiseled as it would become in forthcoming years but the naughty twinkle in the eye is ubiquitous. The actor has, over the years, muscled his way into the mid 40s adding weight, height and six packs (losing his rich mane of hair, albeit) but that glint in the eye has stayed on. Our big bad boy just refuses to grow up. The 46-year old Salman is not a day older than his 10-year self! And, we just love both sides of the coin……

Imran Khan

Imran may be a married man now but really there is no remarkable difference in his looks. He still retains his boyish, chocolaty looks that make him the delight of his female followers. As a child, he was merely shorter and lighter on weight (though there’s no remarkable difference on that count, too).

Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir, as a child, possessed that regal, royal face that he inherited from his Kapoor clan. He was extremely cute, no doubt about that. But apart from that, he looked extremely smart & intelligent as well; a far cry from the shy kids of his generation. Those inherent looks are simply unmissable when it comes to Ranbir Kapoor’s young days.We wonder how many girlfriends he had as a kid! Katrina, are you reading this?

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor was a tall girl and actually had a very amicable personality. It’s a completely wrong notion that she was an ‘ugly duckling’. Instead, she was pretty and graceful. We are sure, she must have wooed several male kids of her colony! Right, folks?

Katrina Kaif

During her childhood days, our ‘Chikni Chameli’ was really a Barbie doll. She was enticingly cute and sugary sweet. She went on to develop a murderous look and an hour-glass figure but even as a child, she had killer looks. Yes, she was that sweet!

Aamir Khan

Even as a child, Aamir was a perfectionist. Just look at his face tilted perfectly at an angle of 27 degrees by the neck; just look at that perfectly timed smile and just look at that perfect poise! Even during childhood, he was good before the cameras! Now, what a screen presence!

Deepika Padukone

Deepika may be elegant and lady-like today, but she was frothy & feisty as a child. Her neatly done hair swayed in the breeze and that dimpled smile added to the cuteness.

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik conquered female hearts even as a child. Even though, he had to battle his problem of stuttering, his cute, green eyes and chubby face had all the big girls going for his cheeks! Ya, you can call him the ‘Greek Baby God’.

Kareena and Karisma Kapoor

Randhir Kapoor and Babita’s daughters were confident kids and had plentiful of baby fat. Yes, they were not the wafer-thin size-zero that they are today but had a fuller face, well-fed body and, overall, very admirable features.
