My dad is very good looking and everyone told him to take up acting, and here I am fulfilling my father’s dream. I am in Mumbai and my father is in Madhya Pradesh. I am decorating my new house in Mumbai and that’s my gift for him. I am proud to be his son.”
Beautiful actress Shilpa Anand said, “My dad is no more and I miss him a lot. He has taught me many things in life which I cherish. When I was young, I used to make cards for my dad. He is no more but I can still feel him everywhere. He is one such person who has guided me and supported me through thick and thin. He was the pillar of the house.”
Rithvik Dhanjani’s dad name is Chandra Prakash Dhanjani and he stays in Dubai. “I can’t really send him a gift but yes, will definitely call him.

We have a business, and even when we had difficult times, my dad never hampered my standard of living.”
So did you get phatkas from your dad? “My dad never hit me but my mom did, of course. I was a very mischievous child and whenever I did any masti, he used to tell my mom mere taraf se bhi do lagado (laughs). It used to be quite funny, actually. When I was in class 9, my parents learned that I have a girlfriend, and then I got a nice phatka from my mom.”
For Prerna Wanvari, her father Anil Wanvari is the best dad in the world. “I am very happy with the way I and my brother (Mishal) have been brought up. He is strict, mild and my best friend.

I became a spendthrift and my dad stopped giving money to me. I miss him a lot and feel his presence everywhere.”
Aishwarya Sakhuja shared, “I don’t celebrate Father’s Day and don’t make any hue and cry about it. For me, everyday is Father’s Day. I say love you to my dad every day. He plays a very important role in my life. I am so lazy that I just work and sleep, rest everything he takes care of. I am very dependent on him. He used to scold me when I got less grades in school but said me to everything whole-heartedly. My dad is in Delhi, so I will just wish him. My dad’s name is Dr Sudhir Kumar Sakhuja.”

Finally, Vishal Singh said, “My dad, Deshraj Singh, is a big foodie and he will cook for everyone tomorrow.
