Brothers Siddharth, Kunal and Aditya Roy Kapoor are slowly making a mark in the film industry. Here is a look at the Roy Kapoor family tree.
One of the most powerful men in the film industry, UTV CEO Siddharth Roy Kapoor inherited love for films from his grandfather.

While Siddharth's grandfather had passion for cinema, his father joined the Indian army.
Their mother, Salome Roy Kapoor, is a trained dancer and former Miss India (1972). Salome in fact even starred in a film opposite Deb Mukherjee in the 1970s before getting married.
After keeping about their relationship for almost two years, Siddharth married actress Vidya Balan at a private ceremony in Mumbai on December 14, 2012.
Siddharth's brother Kunal started a career in showbiz earlier than his two other brothers. A child artist, Kunal was one of the cast members of TV series 'Just Mohabbat' before venturing into theatre.
Kunal also assisted Boman Irani as a photographer and directed the satirical 'The President Is Coming'. A still from Kunal's forthcoming film 'Nautanki Sala' featuring him and Ayushmann Khurrana.

Aditya, the youngest of the three brothers, started his career as a Channel V VJ before making a foray into films with Vipul Shah's 'London'.
Aditya has also appeared in films like 'Action Replay' where he played Aishwarya and Akshay Kumar's son and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Guzaarish'.
Aditya will soon be seen playing the lead in Mahesh Bhatt's 'Ashiqui 2'.
