If there was ever a business that thrived on nepotism, it would be Bollywood. Ask any of the thousands of aspiring actors struggling in Mumbai - the best way to get your foot in the big door of Bollywood, is to be born into a filmy family.

But there are some actors who in spite of being from big Bollywood khandans like the Kapoors and the Khans did not click with the audience. So here are 10 Bollywood Kapoor's and Khan's who were unsuccessful at the box-office.

Sanjay Kapoor - Though both his brothers, Boney, and Anil Kapoor became massively successful, Sanjay didn't quite have the same luck. His debut 'Prem' (1995) was an absolute flop and it was mostly downhill from there.

Zayed Khan - Zayed Khan made his Bollywood debut with Farah Khan's Main Hoon Na but Shah Rukh Khan walked away with all the plaudits. The actor got numerous chances in films like Fight Club, Blue, Yuvvraj, Cash, Speed, Mission Istanbul but failed to make a mark with any of these films and ultimately tanked at the box -office.

Fardeen Khan - The son of famed Firoz Khan, Fardeen started out with 1998's 'Prem Aggan' and we all know how that went. Films like 'Jungle' and 'Pyar Tune Kya Kiya' were interesting, but clearly, they weren't enough to put him in the big leagues.

Imran Khan - The 32-year actor made a successful debut with 'Jaane Tu Jaane Na' but after that, it has been a mixed run for him at the box-office. While "I Hate Luv Storys", "Delhi Belly" and "Mere Brother Ki Dulhan" did well, films like "Luck", "Kidnap", "Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu", "Break Ke Baad" and "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola'' seriously hampered his career. His last movie OUATIMD tanked making him forget by the industry.

Kunal Roy Kapur - Being the elder brother Aditya Roy Kapur and younger brother of Siddharth Roy Kapur, actor Kunal Roy Kapur has not been able to find his space in Bollywood. The actor did some multi-cast movies like Delly Belly, Yeh Jawani Hai Dewani which were successful but apart from that he hasn't found much success.

Arbaaz Khan - Salman Khan's brother made an impressive debut portraying a ruthless negative character in Daraar (1996). However, his limitations as an actor were exposed in his subsequent films like Hello Brother (1999) and Maa Tujhhe Salaam (2002) among others. His recent movies like Tera Intezaar and Nirdosh also tanked at the box-office.

Faisal Khan - Aamir Khan's younger brother featured in Vikram Bhatt's 1994 film Madhosh, which was produced by his late father Tahir Hussain. The film failed to launch his career. He then featured with Aamir in Dharmesh Darshan's Mela in 2000 followed by some forgettable B-grade films

Tushar Kapoor - Despite being the son of superstar father Jitendra, actor Tushar Kapoor could not the same fame and stardom as his father. Though the actor has been part of some good movies like the Golmaal series, Shootout At Lokhandwala, Shor In The City, Tushar could not perform better in solo movies which have always kept in the shadows.

Sohail Khan - The youngest sibling of superstar Salman Khan, if there was an award for the most irritating on-screen Khan, Sohail might walk away with it without much trouble. Right from his lover boy debut Maine Dil Tujhko Diya in 2002 to Veer in 2010, he has carried the same stony expression in each film.
