Bollywood dads don’t need a special day. They spend most of their time doting on their children, posting pictures of them on the social media, and generally being awesome. So, on this Father’s Day, we’ve compiled a list of the coolest Bollywood dads as well as the wonderful things they’ve said about their kids. With pictures, of course.

Aamir Khan

“Azad can’t really differentiate between real and reel as yet. So when he saw me getting punched (in a movie), he thought I was hurt and that upset him. Even after PK, we’ve tried watching other films of mine with him but it doesn’t go down well with him. He prefers the real papa, not the reel one, I guess,” Aamir said of his youngest son, six-year-old Azad.

Shah Rukh Khan

“When I am with Aryan sometimes, we just lie down in our shorts without our shirts and crack dirty jokes. He gets really excited telling me about the gaalis he’s learnt. I’m from Delhi and I’ve also been that age and my vocabulary of Hindi gaalis is fantastic (smiles). So when he tells me one, I tell him that I’ll teach him another version of it,” said Shah Rukh, calling himself a cool dad.

Hrithik Roshan

“Hrithik believes in mental stimulation for his children, so he has been creating comic strips and penning stories for his kids. He wants to impart important lessons that will help them grow up to be compassionate human beings. The stories are told in the format of comic strips and Hrithik designs the doodles himself,” a Mid-Day report quoted a source as saying.

Kunal Kemmu

“I want to know everything that she has done, even though she’s only feeding and sleeping right now. Earlier, I would finish the day’s work, go back home, put my feet up and watch something on TV or call friends over. But now, it’s all about her. She has become the centre of attention in my life,” said Kunal about his daughter Inaaya Naumi. “Now, I’m looking forward to the time when she becomes more active and responsive — right now, she can’t even hold her head up properly. But it’s such a happy and blissful phase to be in.”

Abhishek Bachchan

“Ma’am, as far as I know… Most schools are shut for the weekend. She goes to school on weekdays. Maybe you should try it considering your spelling in your tweet,” Abhishek, always the protective dad, once responded to a troll who wondered how his daughter, Aaradhya, finds the time to go to school between public appearances.

Shahid Kapoor

“My daughter didn’t choose this glamorous life. What’s her fault? I hate to think of all the glare that’s on her. That is probably the only time I feel I should have had another job. I don’t want her to deal with it. It’s not good for children to go through this. They have a right to a normal childhood,” he said of daughter Misha in an interview to Mid-Day.

Happy holidays
