We see them impress us with their brilliant performances all year long, but when it comes to them essaying the role of a dad in real life, they set an even higher benchmark. On the occasion of Father’s day today, we give a huge shout out to Bollywood’s hottest ‘super’ dads who despite a busy schedule don’t miss a moment to spend with their kids. Here’s a list of seven actors from B-Town, who are not only hot and charming but also doting fathers.
Shah Rukh Khan
Bollywood’s very own Baadshah always strives to be the best at what he does and being a father is definitely one of them. The actor shares a lovely bond with each of his children, Aryan, Suhana and Abram and has even gone on record to say that his definition of a perfect day would be when he gets to spend it with his kids. Despite his super hectic schedule he always manages to find time to be by his childrens’ side. A leading daily quoted him as saying, “If I am sitting with the girl, then watching Pretty Little Liars or some chick flick. If I am sitting with the son then I’m watching Doraemon and if I am sitting with the elder son, then I’m watching something deeper and darker from Korea, which I don’t understand but my son does. So watching pictures with them, having potato chips and colas, being in shorts and completely untidy in bed. I think that’s kind of a perfect day.” Super dad indeed!
Hrithik’s sons, Hrehaan and Hridhaan, are the apple of his eye. Whenever the actor isn’t busy with his professional commitments, he is seen spending quality time with his sons. Whether it’s going on vacations with them or taking them out on drives, the actor is every bit the doting father. His instagram page is filled with pictures of him with his sons. Though separated with his wife Suzzanne Khan, the ex-couple always takes out time for their kids taking them out for vacations or outings. As a father he has always made sure that his separation with Sussanne didn’t in any way affect his children and therefore as busy he may be with his movie engagements, he ensures that it doesn’t come in the way of his quality time with his children. Adorable isn’t it?
Arjun Rampal is a proud father to two beautiful daughters, Mahikaa and Myra. The handsome actor has even tattooed their names on his forearm. The Daddy actor loves to unwind from his otherwise busy schedule by taking his daughters out on exotic vacations. He loves the fact that his daughters have taken on him and has gone on record to say that, like their father, they too may want to consider taking up acting in the future. The actor recently separated with his wife Mehr Jesia after 20 years of blissful marriage. He went on record to say that the reason Mehr and he took a lot of time to announce their separation was to make sure that their children had fully accepted it and were comfortable about the new arrangement.
Here’s another actor who is blessed with two daughters! Farhan’s daughters, Shakya and Akira are the core of his world. He is extremely fond of his daughters and leaves no stone unturned to make the best of his time with them. On his daughter, Shakya’s 16th birthday, last year, the actor wrote a hard hitting open letter to her that brought to display his love for his daughters and inhibitions as a father. His cogent words certainly left us speechless and overwhelmed with emotions! Here’s a dad, who strikes a chord with just the right words!
Saif Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan`s love for his children is unflagging. The Nawab has two children, Sarah Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan with Amrita Singh and Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi with Kareena Kapoor Khan. In an earlier interview he had stated that he is a friend to his kids and wants to spend more time with them. Despite his divorce with former wife , Amrita Singh, the actor has always taken out time for his kids, be it challenging them on the tennis court, taking them out on dinner dates or mini vacays. He is also extremely close to Taimur and the first word that the little munchkin uttered was, ‘Abba’. Cuteness personified!
The Udta Punjab actor became a father to baby girl, Misha in August 2016. Since then, to say that the little one has become the centre of the actor’s life is no lie. He is probably one of those few Bollywood actors who decided to go on a five-month long paternity leave to spend quality time with his family. Right from being beside his wife, Mira Rajput, throughout her last few months of pregnancy to taking care of their baby daughter since she was born, Shahid has been doing it all! Even now, whenever he is away from his little “munchkin”, the doting daddy can’t bear her absence. He is all set to be a dad for the second time and to say that he is on top of the moon would be an understatement. Shahid continues to give young dads around the globe some serious parenting goals.
He is Bollywood’s fitness junkie and therefore it comes as no surprise that the Toilet Ek Prem Katha actor, Akshay Kumar, takes time off from his busy schedule to teach his son, Aarav, martial arts, cycling and rollerblades. The good-looking actor has also inked his back with his son’s name.The 50-year-old actor is also extremely possessive and protective of his daughter Nitara Khanna Bhatia. Yes, he along with his wife, Twinkle Khanna, decided to call their daughter so in order to pay tribute to their father, late Rajesh Khanna. Every now and then the actor makes it a point to take a break and spend quality time with both his children. He also keeps his daughter away from the prying eyes of media. Now that’s a strict yet cool dad!
