Shaandaar, Vikas Bahl's next offering after his 2014 hit Queen, has caught the eye with its just released trailer. The film that stars Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor is a romantic drama set against the backdrop of a destination wedding.

The buzz about the film includes its trailer, its cast, a scene with Alia Bhatt in a bikini, and its story-line. But it's also in the news because father and son Pankaj Kapur and Shahid Kapoor are acting together for the first time.

However, this is barely a first for Bollywood father-son duos to have shared screen space. Here are five such examples who have entertained us over the years.
