Deepika Padukone on Prakash Padukone
Speaking about her father, Deepika Padukone has been quoted by Filmfare as saying, “He is such a humble person and there is so much goodness in him that it all radiates. I don’t think my sister, Anisha and I could have asked for a better role model than him.”
"…And that is what I want to tell you my children, that there is no substitute for perseverance, hardwork, determination and passion for what you choose to do. If you love what you do, nothing else matters — neither awards nor compensation, not even the gratification of seeing your face in newspapers or television." Thank You Pa for always inspiring us!#HappyFathersDay
Janhvi Kapoor on Boney Kapoor
A few days after the untimely death of her mother, Sridevi, Janhvi had penned a heartfelt note about the relationship she shared with her father, Boney Kapoor. She had written: “Preserving the sanctity of what they had would mean the world not only to my mother but also to a man who’s entire being revolved around her, and her two children who are all that remains of their love. Me and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his ‘Jaan’.”

“My dad was my best friend, my idol and my protector. He was the man of my life. I was very close to my father. He was my super hero, my idol. I wanted to grow up and be him. He was a musician. He used to perform on stage, he was a surgeon, he was an artist, and he was the life of a party.”
Alia Bhatt on Mahesh Bhatt
Speaking at the India Today Conclave, Alia Bhatt talked about the life lessons she has learnt from her father, director Mahesh Bhatt. “My father taught me there is always someone better than me somewhere. So never say that I have arrived. You rather be stupid rather than pretend to be intelligent. A lot of your energy is consumed when you explain it to this world that you know it all. You can conserve this energy and use it to gain true knowledge. True knowledge can be acquired by being on the threshold of ignorance,” she said.

“I couldn’t possibly be more like anyone as I am like my father. I wish every girl growing up gets to look up to a man like I got to with my dad. He taught me to stand up for myself and what I believed in and never allow anyone to treat me wrongly. My biggest inspiration comes from him and how wonderful this world would be if there were more men like you papa! I love you to the moon and back.
