Colors TV’s Balika Vadhu was the longest running show after Kyunki Saans Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Apart from its unique storyline, the child actress Avika Gor was loved by the audience. She is not the only child actress who has tasted success early in life. There are several other children who have become millionaires at a young age and earned the tag of Child Celebrity. Here are five little stars from the International Film field who left their mark in the industry in a grand style.
#1 Rubina Ali
The famous star from the film Slumdog Millionaire has become one of the millionaire stars. She was starred in the film at the age of 5 and today is one of leading celebrities. She was one of the nine actors who were thrust into the limelight overnight because of the film’s success. Despite never stepping onto the silver screen, she got to share the screen space with stalwarts like Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan and brought her the status of Child Celebrity.
#2 Daniel Radcliffe
Ever since becoming a wizard at the age of 12, Daniel Radcliffe has been an international star. The child actor who played the role of Harry Potter is one of the child millionaires. He made 1 billion dollars in his first film of the Harry Potter series. Seemingly tailor-made for the role of Harry Potter, the young actor went from complete unknown to superstar overnight – and he’d barely hit puberty. Since his days in the blockbuster franchise, Radcliffe has starred on Broadway and in indie movies, earning critical acclaim and shedding his child star image along the way.
#3 Macaulay Culkin
Macaulay started acting at the age of 3 and rose to fame with his role in Home Alone. Tapping into a rich vein of childhood fantasy, the film – which spawned three sequels – showed kids an irresistible world stripped of parental control; a world where an eight-year-old can gorge on forbidden pleasures like junk food and grown-up telly whenever they want. Though he earned a modest $40,000 for his first film, his role in Home Alone made him a millionaire and earned him $10,00,000.
#4 Jaden Smith
The child actor who you saw in the film Karate Kid is a millionaire. Jaden Smith, star of the movie “Karate Kid,” trained every day for four months in order to learn kung fu, the martial art performed in the film. 11-year-old Jaden worked at such a level of intensity that he cried at one point. Many of the training scenes included in the film are actual sessions that Smith experienced. He took a salary of $1b and had an additional earning of $2b.
#5 Abigail Breslin
