    Not all the star kids are able to carry the legacy of their parents further. Many actors like Udya Chopra, Twinkle Khanna, and others failed to impress the audience and are now away from the limelight. However, there is one actor, who is the son of a superstar father and has been unable to make a mark in the industry on his own. 

    The actor we are talking about, his father is one of the highest-paid actors in the south film industry, his brother has impressed the audience with his films, however, he has only 1 hit in his entire career. He is none other than Akhil Akkineni.

He pursued acting as a career at age 16 and enrolled in an acting course at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.
