Father’s Day is here! TV actors tell us what they have learned from their old man!

1.Samir Soni

My father’s name is Raghbir Soni. My dad passed away 3 years back. He was an honest hard working man from a small town near Shimla. He always taught me 4 things. Work hard, be a good human being, always respect women and the word “impossible” doesn’t exist. And till date, I follow that advise.

Father’s Day is a very emotional day for me since I lost my dad, Jitendra Soni,  in my teens and I was very close to him. I am whatever I am because of my parents and my dad has been the biggest reason which I value my relationships in life and express my love on a daily basis to my family and friends. One of the many things he taught me was to be brave and stand by my choices and live a life that makes me happy, be honest with the ones who love me unconditionally and accept me just the way I am. The way a father expresses his love shapes a daughters relationships in life and this Father’s Day let’s not hesitate to shower our love to dearest daddy.

My father’s name is late Mr Omkar Singh Bagri. I really miss him and he is one of the main reasons behind me becoming an actor today. Whenever I see myself on TV, I miss him. There are many things about my dad which I remember, he was crazy about his work and was very hardworking. One thing which he always used to say is that we should always work hard and should never take a step back and neither give up. Also, he said that we should never expect too much, we should just think that every day is a new day and we have to work hard. So these things which he told me, inspires me every day to work hard. Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers.  s.

    My father’s name is Krishnappa Kadandale. One advice given by him which I follow till date is, to be honest to yourself. There are three things which I follow which are- you should always do the right thing, be happy and make others happy. He was very righteous about things. I lost my father before coming into the TV industry when I was around 22 years old before I started Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. When I was pregnant, Deepak Bhayani who is Deepak Bhai for me, who is actually my husband’s family friend, was there for me and he has been like a father to me for the last 8-9 years. He is my father figure and I am going to celebrate with him and the family which I have earned all thanks to him, his wife, daughter, and son. If I am not shooting than most probably, I am going to celebrate Father’s Day with him and Sana who is like my sister. What he normally does is that he takes his daughters out and gives them a treat and gifts, so that’s the kind of father which I have for the last 8-9 years and he is very special to me.5.Rajesh Kumar

My father’s name is Shivanand Prasad Singh. My father always wanted that I try my hand at agriculture and I took his advice seriously. He wanted me to change my profession but I have not changed it completely. Rather, I have added one more profession. This time on Father’s Day we won’t be together because he is in Bihar and I am in Mumbai. So there is no special celebration but I think that whatever small achievements I have would make him happy on this day.

When I was in 12th my father passed away, I miss him a lot. Everyone tells me that I have a lot of manners and etiquette and that I always address others with ‘Aap’ even to the people who are younger to me. So somewhere or the other I have inherited this thing from my father as I always used to see him addressing everyone with ‘Aap’ even to the servants. So these little things I have learned from him. He even respected women a lot. Since I was very young, I didn’t get a lot of time to spend with him but whenever I see someone else bonding with their fathers I really miss him a lot. He passed away when I was very young so I only remember his face. I really wished that he would have been there so I could have celebrated father’s day with him. But I know somehow he is always there with me and will always be there.

Vivian Dsena’s ‘Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon’ clocks eight years!

“Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon” completed eight years today. The show that aired on Colors TV topped TRP charts not just for its storyline but also because of the chemistry of its lead pair, Vivian Dsena and Drashti Dhami. Their on-screen pair was a huge hit among the fans and they had even coined the term “Rishabala” for them.

While Vivian played superstar Rishabh Kundra aka RK, Drashti essayed the titular role of Madhubala. The show is about a girl, born on a film set, who later meets a superstar and how their feelings change from hatred to love for each other. The show had everything from love, drama, an obsession to possessiveness.

It made both the actors into huge small screen superstars overnight. Vivian even calls the show a turning point in his career.

“‘Madhubala…’ was the highlight of my career. I think that’s one show which changed my career graph completely. It gave me whatever I expected from my career and from my self. It changed my career, my name and everything professionally 360 degrees for me,” he says. He further adds, “I had given my heart, body, mind and soul to the character of RK. I am grateful to my audiences for unconditional love. Does he miss the camera between projects? “The butterflies in my stomach which are there when the moment the director says action is something that I miss the most when I am not working and it makes me want to get back soon,” he says.

To celebrate eight years of the show, Drashti took to her Instagram account and shared a poster of the show and captioned it as “8 years” followed by a red heart emoticon.

“Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon” premiered on May 28, 2012 and went off-air after almost two years. It was produced to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema. Hope the makers decide to come with Madubala 2!
