It’s Father’s Day today and considering Bollywood heroes are looked at as role models for a lot of things, why not for being good dads? HT City conducted a quick snap poll to find out who, according to young readers, are the dishy dads of tinsel town. Their choice? Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan (in random order). Here’s what makes them ‘fathers who rock’!!
Anil Kapoor can be hyper-protective about his daughters but when it comes to pampering them, he leaves no stone unturned.
Recently for Sonam Kapoor’s 24th birthday, he flew for 18 hours from Los Angeles to Mumbai just to celebrate the occasion, and returned to LA the day after.
Arjun Rampal is the father of two baby rock stars —Mahikaa, 7, and Myra, 4. The gals were so inspired by dad’s Rock On that they formed their own band. But Arjun’s goatee didn’t go down very well with them— they wouldn't let him kiss them. So when the movie got over, Rampal first got his goatee shaved off so that he could kiss his daughters.
It is no news that Shah Rukh Khan dotes on his children, son Aryan, 11, and daughter Suhana, 9. According to reports, King Khan has started cutting back on smoking after being urged to do so by his kids. He has also said in interviews that he worked crazy hard to get six-pack abs because son Aryan wanted daddy to have a fab body. Recently, he bought an Audi A6 car especially for them. Also, in his free time, he loves playing Scrabble with Suhana and football with Aryan.
Junaid, 18, and Aira, 13, became baraatis at father Aamir Khan’s second wedding. The affectionate dad takes six months off from work (every year? or just took it this year?) to spend some quality time with them. They play chess together and he read out stories to them. And Aamir will soon be a dad again, as wife Kiran Rao is expecting their first child from this marriage.
When it comes to Akshay Kumar’s 7-year-old son Aarav, the actor goes an extra mile to fulfill all that darling beta wants. So when WWE star Kane recently visited, Akshay made Aarav, a huge fan of the wrestler, meet him. The father-son duo train for parkour together and also indulge in adventure sports when there is time. Akshay also has a tattoo with Aarav’s name inscribed on his upper back.My daddy strongest
