If you believe in the notion that your passion and work become perfect with age, you are highly mistaken. We are well aware of the fact that acting is no cake walk, especially if you are a kid. It takes a lot to understand the role and the level of hard work that needs to be put in.

If you have seen films like Sanjay Leela Bhansali’sBlack or Siddharth Anand’s Tara Rum Pum, you will remember who actually enjoyed the limelight for all the right reasons. Yes, we are talking about the kiddos who were a part of these films.
