Some Great Dads In Hindi Movies

Great dads love their child and want the very best for their child. 
Hugs are free, comforting and a Jaadu ki Jhappi (magical hug) can instantly have an emotional connect and make both the giver and receiver happy! 

There are many Great Dads in real life and reel life.
Here are some cool dads from Hindi cinema who deserve a hug as they:

Are Loving & Doting
In the movie- Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, a single sneeze enacted by the smart daughter is enough to get her father rushing to the summer-camp! Earlier her dad even helps his daughter on stage by speaking on the topic-'Mother' in a competition.

Go Far To Be With/Connect With Their Child
In the movie- Chachi 420, the father dons the garb of an elderly governess just so as to be with his daughter at the latter's maternal grandfather's place!

Prove to be honest role-models
In the movie- Shakti, the father upholds his duty and refuses to negotiate his son's release from kidnappers. His son hates him, but later, his grandson understands and derives inspiration.

Are Pillars Of Support
In the movie- Ferrari Ki Sawaari, the little hero's dad goes to great lengths to fulfill his son's dream- to play at Lord's.
In the movie- Kya Kehna, the unwed pregnant girl's father supports her decision to carry the child.

Can Do Anything For Child's Interests                                                                          
In the movie- Akele Hum Akele Tum, the child's father even does what he is averse to i.e. sells his compositions to copy-cat musicians to earn money.

Know The Best & Plan For The Future
In the movie- Mughal-E-Azam, the hero’s father, The Emperor of Hindustan, plans not only for the hero's future but also plans for our country's future. He does not let his son marry the court-dancer the latter loves.

Set Matters Right
In the movie- 2 States, the hero and heroine get to marry as the hero's father helps to patch up.

Motivate & Grant Freedom 
In the movie- Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, the hero's father is very open and is willing to let his ambitious son's travel-spirits soar freely. 

Have Courage to Own Up  
In the movie- Paa, the politician father of a child suffering from Progeria, raised by a single-gynaecologist mom, agrees that he happens to be the child's father. He publicly addresses and owns up that the child is a result of not using 'protection'.

Teach Life Lessons
In the movie- Andhaa Kanoon, when his daughter starts crying, the Dad advises her-
"Rote rote hasna seekho, hanstey hanstey rona;
Jitni chaabi bhari Ram ne, utna  chaley khilona".

English Transalation: 
Learn to laugh while crying, and learn to cry while laughing;
The toy will run for as much time as Ram has wound its key.

Fathers are special for all the above reasons and more!
A hug is a great gift we can give our father this Father's Day.

Mothers play an important role as the heart of the home, but this in no way lessens the equally important role fathers’ play, as head of the home, they nurture, train, and love their children.
