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.

I’m gonna miss them on Rakhi Day and how I wish That i could have tied them one in person and not through couriers 🙂

For Independence Day:
Being a good citizen doesn’t mean to just love your country. It means to love it’s good but also trying ways to fix its bad. I really do love india like it’s my own baby and I crib a lot about it, even on my social media but it’s always with an intention to fix it, nurture it and make it better for our tomorrow and our children’s day after. My country is My own and I am proud to be an Indian.

Kunal Nirola on Friendship Day: I have been lucky to make friends wherever I have gone

For actor Kunal Nirola, his friends mean the world. The actor says that his friendships have helped him become a better person today. “Friendship is one of the most beautiful and powerful things that can flourish between human beings. Friendship can help to build you up or can even destroy you. Friendship depends on how you create it. I am a very jolly person and I make friends wherever I go. I have had so many friends and I was lucky enough as wherever I went, I made friends. These friends are a blessing to me. I am a person who gives his hundred percent even if one of the friends gives his ten percent. I start loving people and get very close to them and if something affects them then it also affects me. This is the beauty of friendship, it is like a family you create,” he says.

He adds, “I am from Punjab and I have stayed in Delhi, and now I am in Mumbai. I have my family of friends in Punjab, Delhi and now in Mumbai. Recently, one of my friends got married and she made me swear to attend her marriage, which is so cute and beautiful. Sometimes you need someone who pampers and supports you and it is where the beauty of friendship comes.”

Kunal says that his family members are also his best friends. “My parents are like my friends, especially my father as I share everything with him and he is my first friend. Even my mom and brothers are like my friends as I share even the stupidest thing with them. All of my friends are very close to me and I really love them. My college friends are in Bangalore and recently I had visited them and we all go on vacations. In a city where you know no one, friends make you happy. Friendship day is coming and you all should go and express your friendship to your friends,” he says.

Happy Friendship Day: Here’s who these TV actors are best friends with

From uplifting their spirits on their ‘low’ days, handling mood swings to taking care of them, these friends are surely people who are favourite TV actors adore!

Angad Hasija 

My best friend from the industry is Sara Khan. It’s been 10 years now and we are still good friends. No matter where she is, she has always stayed in touch with me. She was doing a Pakistani show in between and from there, she used to FaceTime me. We talk almost every day with each other. Many people say that a guy and girl can’t be friends but my friendship with Sara is very pure. We don’t meet much but whenever we do, it’s the same bond and connection. It’s been 10 years now, we have even done 2-3 shows together and I feel there are only a few friends who maintain friendships for so long. Once I was feeling unwell and my family was out of town, so Sara left her shoot for two hours and came to my place, took me to the doctor and dropped me back home, I am so grateful to her.

Rajesh Kumar 

My best friend is a person who has been with me when I was no one. My classmate, roommate, batchmate who has been with me since 1995; his name is Kranti Prakash Jha. He is also an actor. The best part about him is the gratitude towards his discipline, the way he lives his life, the way he has maintained himself,  the way he does yoga, everything is such an inspiration for me. He has always been an inspiration. Coming from a small town, getting the title of Grasim Mr India Best dressed male and eventually landing up in films, what a journey it has been. I have seen him throughout his journey. A guy from a small town who did not even have a sense of fashion and then to become Grasim Mr India best-dressed male is very inspiring. We are actually brothers from another mother. The first time we met in Delhi during college days, I remember him looking at my thin moustache and saying in a Bihari accent ‘Arey Baap re Aap Toh Bahut Sundar Hai’. I just laughed at him at that time. He had come in formal clothes and sports shoes and from then to now, the way he has worked on himself is incredible. He is such an inspiration.

Rahuol Lohani  

I have had many best friends since childhood, but in Mumbai, the first-ever good friend I made was Kirti Kelkar. We were in a show together called as Har Mod Par where I was playing her brother. I believe friendship happens automatically and no efforts need to be made. I have done so many TV shows and worked with many people but I have made only some friends and Keerti Kelkar ji is on the top of that list. I call Keerti my punching bag because whenever we fight, I am the one who gets angry and she understands me. I feel that the people who understand you are the ones who are your friends and that’s what my relationship with Keerti is all about. She is always there whenever I need her. Vikas Kadam is also a dear friend who was part of the creatives before and is now an actor.

Tinaa Dattaa

My best friend is Aashka Goradia because she always boosts my morale, she always motivates me. I have an attitude of gratitude for her. I shall always be thankful for her because she is that one industry best friend of mine who is not jealous of anybody. Who does not have ego issues? She will always show you the right path and never make you feel insecure unlike any other actors on set. She is a fabulous person and that’s why she is my best friend.
