OMG! Nutan's granddaughter, Pranutan Bahl, is a natural beauty like her gorgeous dadi!

Daughter of famous actor Mohnish Bahl, Pranutan is ready to make her Bollywood debut!

She was the reigning queen of Bollywood in the 50s-60s and was known for her stellar performances in movies that are celebrated in Indian cinema such as Sujata, Bandini, Saudagar and many more.

Legendary actress Nutan would always be remembered for her timeless beauty, elegance and movies. And now twenty-five years after her death, looks like she has returned in her granddaughter Pranutan Bahl, who looks strikingly similar to her famous dadi!

“My father and I just shared a few pictures on Facebook and that got all the attention. It’s wonderful when you get so much love from people. I’m happy they’ve commented how I look like my father and grandmother. It’s evident that I’ve taken to my paternal side," says the young girl in an interview to a national daily.

The 24-year-old is daughter of popular character actor Mohnish Bahl, who is best remembered for her power-packed performances in Maine Pyaar Kiya, Astitiva, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, Hum Saath Saath Hain.

Belonging to a family of actors it's natural for Pranutan to opt for acting too. However, that's not the only reason she is looking at a career in the movies. However, it must be noted that she is a law graduate and holds a BLS LLB degree. She also manages her dad's social media accounts.

“I loved my grandmother in [films such as] Sujata (1959), Bandini (1963) and Saudagar (1973). And my father was fabulous in Maine Pyar Kiya (1989) on the big screen, and in the TV show, Devi (2002-2004). I can’t wait to work in Bollywood. Given my legacy, I believe I can’t be a part of any and every project. It has to be a substantial character and the film must be helmed by a good director under a leading banner," she says.

“I think healthy competition is important. It helps you perform better. Jhanvi (Kapoor; daughter of actor Sridevi) and Sara (Ali Khan; daughter of actor Saif Ali Khan) are both stunning and talented. It would be great to debut with them at the same time,” says Pranutan.

Pranutan is right when she says that competition is important and helps you perform better, but many a times children and the young take it quite negatively, especially when they are in school. That's why parents should encourage their kids to be competitive but only as long as it is healthy competition.

  • Ask your child to never be obsessed with competing with his friends and don't go overboard with it.
  • Demeaning, disrespecting and humiliating others in the name of competition is bullying and not competing.
  • It is also important to remember that being on the top or the first in class is not important as long as you're confident and sure of what you're doing.
