Uday prakash Tirich me kehte hain 'baap kile ki tarah hota hai, unke parkote par hum sab kuch bhool kar khelte hain, daudte hain aur raat ko us kile ki suraksha me hum gehri neend sojaate hain (Uday Prakash says in Tirich 'Fathers are like forts. We play freely around them. And, at night, we get a sound sleep under their protection)'."
Dilip Kumar died on Wednesday, after a prolonged illness, He had been admitted to a Mumbai hospital last month after he complained of breathlessness.
Earlier this week, Anubhav had shared a picture of his brother and their father and had written, "Somehow I can never cuddle dad like that. Anupam does and I feel jealous.
