Hyderabad: The sun doesn’t seem to shine bright on actor Dhruv Vikram who debuted in `Adithya Varma’.
Son of actor Chiyaan Vikram, Dhruv has been on the receiving end of bitter criticism, abrasive comments and placed in juxtaposition with Vijay Devarakonda ever since the movie was released.
Speculations are rife that he has decided to quit acting and venture into business. However, it was neither been confirmed by Dhruv nor Vikram but the tabloids in Tamil Nadu are gossiping about it. There is also a rumor that this could just be conjecture as Dhruv earned a lot of love from his fans for his looks and attitude.
Coming to his film, although there have been some minor paradigm shifts in the role played by Banita, as the female protagonist, the movie still portrays unreasonable misogyny in an era of growing awareness and progressive feminism.
While it is a feast for the eyes of some audience, the chauvinism has not gone down well with the strong believers of equality. The film, much like the Telugu and Hindi versions, has depicted the male lead as a bellicose medico attracting disapproval.
It is quite the privilege to be born to affluent star parents but star kids too have had their own share of luckless careers and fallen prey to merciless criticism.
While Dhruv is not the sole star-kid that has been star-crossed in the film industry, there are others like Uday Chopra, son of Yash Chopra in `Pyaar Impossible’, Taneesha Mukherjee, daughter of Tanuja Mukherjee, in `Sshhh’. Eesha Deol couldn’t pull off grace much like her mother Hema Malini. Fardeen Khan, son of Firoz Khan has been continuously unsuccessful after a series of endeavors. Luv Sinha, son of Shatrughan Sinha, couldn’t have luck favor him.
After trying their utmost, some star-kids have been painfully unsuccessful and made bids for different career paths unlike Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, and others.
