Living with your parents well after growing up didn’t use to be such a big deal in India. Our culture expected every boy to live with their parents and take care of them while girls lived with their in laws. But the westernization of Indian culture has brought the attitude that it is not cool to live with your parents after a certain age. While I accept modern ideas as much as the other guy, there are some things that our old culture got right and the Americans got wrong. In big cities, it has become common for boys to move out of their parent’s house once they get a job and start earning. Taking up jobs in different cities or countries also means that most children move out of their parent’s home. It has become a social norm now to move out and as always celebrities have to face the pressure of being cool. A lot of bollywood celebrities don’t care about this norm and still live with their parents. In one way it is good that they want to live with their parents while for some it’s time to grow up and move out.
6. Sonam Kapoor:
Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam still lives with her father even though she has established herself as a good actress on the young upcoming generation. She’s a talented actress and has received good acting skills through her genes. Not only does her living with her parents show her love for them but it is also actually a very wise financial decision as it saves on rent which she happily spends on designer dresses and other stuff.
5. Ranbir Kapoor:
Ranbir Kapoor still lives with his parents, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. He says he does so because of how close he is to them. This super talented and cute family stays together and that’s… well cute. But I wonder how he goes about his dating business with all those girls under his father’s roof. I guess if you have a father like Rishi Kapoor you can manage to pull it off. I bet he helps Ranbir from time to time as well.
4. Dev Patel:
Dev Patel might have become the slumdog millionaire but he still lives with his parents. And rightly so as he’s still a kid. Apparently he loves to fight with his sister. We’ll have to see if he continues to stay with his parents once he grows up. Or will he move out to Hollywood?
3. Alia Bhatt:
Alia Bhatt is still a child and so still lives with her parents. She says she loves her mom and never wants to leave her and move out. Let’s see what happens when she grows up. But for now that’s great and there shouldn’t be anything wrong with that. Living with your parents should be the new cool. It’s one part of our culture that actually makes sense and isn’t something to be ashamed of.
2. Rani Mukherjee:
Rani Mukherjee is the oldest bollywood star on this list and she still lives with her parents. She likes to stay true to her Bengali roots and follows all the traditions wholeheartedly. That’s the kind of stars we need more, who help us maintain our traditions while adapting them to suit the modern age. I wonder how she’ll feel when she has to move out when Aditya Chopra finally accepts that they are married to each other.
1. Vivek Oberoi:
Vivek Oberoi is a desperate star. He’s always been desperate to be a star. Or we can say that he’s the star of desperation. He still lives with his parents but the interesting thing is that his parents have tried twice to throw him out but he keeps coming back! Now we can expect that from Vivek. He says he comes back because he misses his parents too much. But we all know that that’s just an excuse.
