Popular Bollywood Celebrities Who Looked Absolutely Unrecognizable As Kids

Mumbai, Bollywoodmantra: So apparently these celebrities weren’t just born looking dropdead gorgeous. Think only you have awkward and extremely childhood pictures? Here are nine celebrities who will make you feel better:

Popular Bollywood Celebrities Who Looked Absolutely Unrecognizable As Kids

Siddharth Malhotra

From ‘not’ to ‘hot,’ Siddharth owes puberty his heartfelt and eternal gratitude.



While there is no denying her caliber as an actress, Kajol similarly owes the person who invented makeup one helluva thank you.



Kangana Ranaut

We’re glad that the Kangana of today got over her aversion to the camera and took to the silver screen with some absolutely brilliant roles, because Kangana Jr. sure doesn’t look too cheesed about being on the receiving end of the camera lens.


Priyanka Chopra

With absolutely zero offense to Priyanka, it’d take one hell of a fortune teller to predict that the kid in this picture would one day bring the Miss World crown home and bedazzle the Indian and Western masses alike.



Imran Khan

We’d have had a hard time connecting the cute little guy in this picture to Imran Khan, but mercifully those thick brows saved the day.


Shilpa Shetty

Graceful, stylish and hot, everything that the younger Shilpa was not.


Bappi Lahiri

Damn. For a minute there, we almost didn’t connect this innocent young kid to the walking, talking gold van he has morphed into today.


Kapil Sharma

For a celebrity of his caliber, Kapil is as appearance conscious as the next guy, but guess how many Babaji Ka Thullus he gave about his looks back in his childhood?


Alok Nath

Contrary to what we always thought, Alok Nath didn’t just spring into existence as the beaming, benevolent Babuji of today. Back in the days of yore, before he singlehandedly took on the task of wiping out the country’s singles registry, Alok Nath looked like he was ready to dole out anything but aashirwaad to the ladies.
