तस्वीरें उनकी धुंधली पड़ जाती हैं , यादें , सूरतें वैसी ही रह जाती हैं ; पिता के स्वर्गवास पे जब शोक ग्रस्त बैठे थे हम , मित्र ने हाथ रखके कहा , क्यूँ ऐसे होते हो तुम , भाग्य शाली हो , बिताए हैं 61 वर्ष तुमने उनके साथ , मैंने तो जाना ही नहीं 18 वर्षों के बाद पिता का हाथ !🙏
Ajay Devgn shared a throwback picture with Veeru Devgan from a boxing ring. “Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday.. Unseen, unheard but always near, still loved #HappyFathersDay,” the actor wrote.

Wisdom to know the difference between right and wrong and the strength to choose the right thing always' I pray that you all find the same wisdom that I pray for daily and I pray that all girls are blessed with a father like mine."

Actress Sonam Kapoor shared a couple of pictures, one with father Anil Kapoor also featuring sister Rhea Kapoor. the second picture she shared was of her feeding a piece of cake to father-in-law Sunil Ahuja on her wedding reception. She wrote a lengthy heartfelt note.
“A father’s tears and fears are unseen, his love is unexpressed, but his care and protection remain as a pillar of strength throughout our lives.” – Ama H. Vanniarachchy I’m blessed to be born to a father who has taught me the value of integrity, morals, progressive ideas and the importance of work ethic, I’m lucky enough to marry into a family where my father in law leads by example with his optimism, spirituality and doing everything he does with an unbeatable conscience. Both of them have given me unconditional love and support. And they’ve both started with nothing and reached stars and have done everything to give their children whatever they need so they don’t have to face the same trials they faced. But our most important inheritance is the values that they have passed down. Happy Father’s Day to the super heroes in my life.. I am because of you.
Anand Ahuja also took to Instagram to share a picture of his father and father-in-law, dancing at their wedding reception. He captioned the picture with heart emojis.
