It is often said that the world is a small place. If we go by this then India’s showbiz industry – the Bollywood – is indeed a small place. And thanks to social media, it has become a lot easier for us to not only trace our favorite stars but also virtually stalk their children, even when they aren’t really a part of the industry. While we are mostly aware of their public life, have you ever wondered that they, too, are human beings and share similar jitters like us when it comes to little things, like say examinations, studies, etc?

Have you ever dreamed of your favorite actors or directors sharing lunch in school or share books with their best friends at the moment? Well, we don’t think we have ever imagined them that way. In fact, did you know that many of the celebrity kids – who are superstars now – studied together in school and had been great friends since then?

1. Krishna Shroff and Athiya Shetty

The daughter of Jackie Shroff – Krishna – and the daughter of Suniel Shetty – Athiya – may be yet to establish themselves as powerful actresses but it is already a known fact that these two celebrity kids are great friends and have been together since their school days.
