On Father’s Day, which is to be observed on June 19 this year, let us remember some of these iconic Bollywood father moments.
1. Jayeshbhai Jordaar – Amazon Prime Video
In this 2022 film, Ranveer Singh essays the role of a father who defies obsolete social norms to save his wife and unborn daughter. The story is about discrimination against the girl child and female foeticide but with a comic twist. Jayesh stands out as a strong and amiable father figure as he finds hilarious ways to save his family.
2. Piku- SonyLiv
Anyone who has seen Piku will remember the iconic bond shared by the female protagonist Piku (played by Deepika Padukone) and her father (played by Amitabh Bachchan). We love the short, warm and sometimes funny chats that go between this duo.
3. Angrezi Medium – Hotstar
Angrezi Medium gave us one of the most iconic roles played by late actor Irfan Khan. This 2020 film revolved around the story of a widower who goes the extra mile to fulfill his daughter’s dream to study abroad.
4. Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl – netflix
This film is based on Gunjan Saxena, India’s first female combat pilot in the Kargil War. The titular role is played by Janhvi Kapoor and her father’s part is beautifully essayed by Pankaj Tripathi. In the film, we find a supportive and inspirational father in Pankaj Tripathi.
5. Dangal- netflix
When the film was released in 2016, it became an iconic movie not only because it depicted women in sports. The film also showed the role of a father (played by Aamir Khan) in motivating his daughters in a certain profession.
