As the internet is abuzz with Father’s Day special messages here are the much-celebrated pairs of Bollywood’s fathers and daughters who over the years have openly displayed love and affection for each other.
Amitabh and Shweta Bachchan
This pair tops the list as Big B has time and again expressed his love and inclination for his only daughter and has even publicly claimed that his net worth will be shared between his son Abhishek and Shweta equally. While earlier Shweta kept herself away from Bollywood and was mostly in Delhi with her husband Nikhil Nanda and her kids Agastya and Navya Naveli now she is very much active and is part of all the A-listed circles of the B-town.
Prakash and Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone has repeatedly during her interviews, posts, and events shared her strong feelings for her parents, especially her father Prakash Padukone who created history in 1980 by winning the All England Open Badminton Championships, the first time ever by any Indian. Deeps has always maintained that she is very close to her father and the values given by her parents have made her what she is today.
Mahesh and Alia Bhatt
Alia Bhatt is the topmost actress of today. While she owes her success more to Karan Johar than her father Mahesh Bhatt, the latter has been a big influence in Aaloo’s life. Even though the Raazi actress rarely got to spend time with her busy director father as she grew up Mahesh Bhatt started giving more time to family and the relationship between Alia Bhatt and her father became stronger after she became an actress herself.
Boney and Janhvi Kapoor
Until Sridevi’s death, both Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor were mama’s daughters who were strictly guided by the superstar. But post the shocking death of Sriji, it was only Boney and his daughters and during these times of crisis, they came closer, and their bonding with their step siblings-Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor also improved.
Anil and Sonam Kapoor
The superstar of the 90s Anil Kapoor has always been proud of both his daughters Sonam and Rhea Kapoor. From Sonam winning National Award for Neerja to arranging a grand marriage ceremony for her the Zhakas actor has always shown through his actions and words what Sonam means to him. Even when he met the Raanjhanaa actress after a long time due to the Corona pandemic, Anil Kapoor was in tears.
