Rajnikant ranked first among respondents across South with 42 per cent votes. The poll was conducted on the occasion of Father’s Day and received responses from over 85,000 people who logged onto Shaadi.com in the month of June.
Interestingly, the poll reveals that Big B and Rajnikant are worshipped not just as the baadshahs of silver screen but also as father figures in real life.
Gourav Rakshit, business head of Shaadi.com, says, “The mindset of today’s youth is well reflected by this poll. Times may have changed, but it’s nice to see that the qualities admired in an ideal father haven’t changed much over generations.”
Female respondents who took the poll revealed that when it comes to choosing their life partner, they preferred someone who possessed their father’s qualities. The male respondents echoed their sentiments, as they felt that being understanding is important in a relationship.
