1: Among Hindi film stars Shashi Kapoor was the only successful child star who became successful Star. Amir and Hritik did small insignificant and unnoticable roles as Child actors.Sridevi and Kamal Hasan were not child actors in Hindi movies. None of the successful Hindi movies' child actors like Honey Irani, Tabassum, Junior Mehmood and Sachin could become succesful actors as adults.Shashi Kapoor was the only Child Star (Aag, Awaara) to become a Star Actor as adult from 20 years (Dharamputra) to 52 years of age (Akayla).
