So far, Siddharth has announced three projects.

Asked if we can expect to see the National Award winning Vidya in any of the films, Siddharth told IANS here: "Actually, as a family, we have all decided to keep the professional and the personal separate, and that works very well for us as we can be objective about each other."

None of the brothers either?

"Yes, we are all on our own paths but very supportive of each other in everything we all do," he added.

His slate of films include an Aamir Khan-starrer biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma, a biopic based on the life of a man named Vijendra Singh who had lost his wife Leela in the Uttarakhand floods, and another movie based on a book.

Siddharth's brother Aditya Roy Kapur's last release was Ok Jaanu, where we saw him paired opposite Shraddha Kapoor. Siddharth's wife Vidya Balan will next be seen in Tumhari Sulu opposite Manav Kaul. The movie will also mark the cinematic debut of RJ Malishka. It is slated to release on 1 December.

With roots in kinship and stardom, how Bollywood continues to fuel nepotism despite being an 'industry'

Nepotism is encouraged, above all, by a film industry marked by high risk and volatility. Under such circumstances, the star – who accumulates an almost divine aura in his person – comes to be the biggest investment the producer makes to guarantee a film’s success.
