11 Bollywood Celebs Who Have Adopted Kids

While the whole world knows and praises Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for adopting three babies from underprivileged countries and giving them all the happiness and joy that they could ever ask for, we take a look at the generous and big-hearted celebrities closer home, who have adopted children and continue to be an inspiration for everyone around them.

1. Sushmita Sen

She is not only one of the most beautiful women in this universe but also possesses a big and beautiful heart. In an interview with Simi Garewal, Sush mentioned that she had decided to adopt a child when she was just 18. However, the adoption laws didn’t allow a single woman to adopt a child and she had to fight a long battle at the end of which she adopted Renee. Sushmita was 25 at that time. Earning accolades for being a woman who had made history, she again adopted a three-month-old baby girl, Alisah, back in 2010. This time, too, she had to face a legal battle because the Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act (1956) forbade the adoption of a child if the adopter already had a biological or adopted child of the same sex. Sushmita, however, challenged this Act in the court and finally, Bombay High Court allowed her to adopt Alisah.

2. Raveena Tandon

Who would believe us when we say that this national award-winning actress, who still sets many a heart racing, has already become a grandmamma? Yes, you have read it right. Raveena had reportedly adopted her distant cousin’s daughters, aged 11 and 8, when she was barely 21. Both the girls, Pooja and Chhaya, are now married while Raveena is now the full-time mother of her biological children Rasha (9) and Ranbir (7).

3. Mithun Chakraborty

This superstar of the yesteryears is also a superstar in real life. Not so long ago, he heard that a newborn baby girl was abandoned on the streets of Kolkata. The girl was found in a garbage bin. This news moved Mithun Da and he decided to adopt the baby and named her Ishani. That newborn baby has now grown up to be a pretty lady and is seen accompanying her daddy dearest and her brothers Mimoh, Rimoh and Namashi on various social occasions.

4. Salim Khan-Helen

One of the most widely known and respected families of Bollywood has an adopted daughter, too. Salim Khan, a renowned scriptwriter and father of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, had adopted a girl child after his marriage with actress-dancer Helen. The couple had named her Arpita and now she is a regular in the social circles of Mumbai.

5. Sunny Leone

This is the most fmous and latest adoption in bollywood. Sunny and her husband Daniel had adopted Nisha a small 4 year girl.

6. Samir Soni and Neelam Kothari

When Samir Soni married his long-time love Neelam right after his stint with Bigg Boss Season 4, everybody was waiting for the couple to announce the good news. But due to some complications, they decided to adopt a baby instead of going for a surrogate mother. As Samir comes from an all-boys family, the couple chose to adopt a daughter and after a few months of formalities, they welcomed Ahana to their home and in their life.

7. Nikhil Advani

This famous director of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kal Ho Na Ho adopted a girl child and named her Keya, who is now aged 8. But that’s not all. More than a decade ago, Advani had adopted a child from Mumbai streets and paid for his education. However, the child called Pathan was not keen to pursue his studies. The news that Nikhil Adavni has an 18-year-old adopted son never came out until he was arrested for threatening to kill Advani and abduct Keya. Pathan had reportedly grown quite possessive of all the financial support he had been getting from Nikhil Advani and hence the misdemeanour.

8. Subhash Ghai

Bollywood showman Subhash Ghai has never been too vocal about his personal life. But he had adopted Meghna, the daughter of his younger brother, years ago. Meghna is now married to Rahul Puri and they are now taking care of Whistling Woods, Ghai’s film and media institute based in Mumbai. Ghai has also been blessed with Muskaan, his biological daughter, who was born 27 years after his marriage to Mukta Ghai.

9. Priety Zinta

Priety Zinta popularly adopted 34 young girls from Mother Miracle School in Rishikesh in 2009. Zinta takes care of the food, upbringing and education of all of these girls.

10. Rahul Bose

Rahul Bose adopted six children from Andaman & Nicobar Islands who were aged around 11. He has now admitted these children in Rishi Valley School, Andhra Pradesh.

11. Kunal Kohli

One of the most renowned directors in the Indian film industry, Kunal Kohli and his wife, Raveena adopted a young girl by the name of Radha.
