Siblings of some Bollywood A-listers are all set to make their acting debuts. Take a look!

Bollywood, apart from its larger than life, musical movies, is also known for its many family dynasties that are still going strong.

This has been a long-standing trend in the Hindi film industry and, if the number of aspiring actors waiting in the wings for their Bollywood debuts is any indication, it is here to stay.

Isabelle Kaif, Katrina's sister 

This could turn out to be one of the most high profile launches of 2014.

Isabelle Kaif is currently shooting for Vinay Virmani starrer Dr Cabbie, which is being backed by none other than Salman Khan.

An international film with a strong Indian connect to it, one waits to see how it will present Isabelle on screen, considering big sister Katrina is a superstar already.
