Kids of Celebrities have a lot of pressure on their heads. Especially in India, where cricket is life and most consider cricketers bigger celebrities than actors and actresses in the country, there is immense pressure on the kids of these sportsmen with the media monitoring their lives from a very young age.
Will they be as successful as their parents? Will they be successful in the same field, and if they succeed, can they be as good or better than their parents?
Some cricketers have had the pride and privilege of teaching and training their kids to fill their shoes from a young age, while some have accepted that their children have different dreams and want to build their success in other fields.
With that, let’s have a look at 8 children of Indian cricketers and what they’re up to:
1. Sara Tendulkar- D/O Sachin Tendulkar:
