Sonam Kapoor

For this Bollywood's fashion diva, her father, Anil Kapoor is the best actor in the country. She shares a very friendly and close relationship with her father. Anil, too, is a doting dad who pampers Sonam a lot. Recently, daddy dearest even bought rights for film adaptations of two books, which are Sonam's favourite.

In Sonam’s words:

“I go to him for advice where my personal life is concerned as he is more liberal than my mother. He wants us (Sonam and Rhea) to be friends with him, but I want to talk to him in a certain way and give him that respect as I have strong Indian values.”

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka is not shy of showing her love for her dad publicly. Even her twitter page describes her as ‘Daddy's lil girl’. She has even tattooed these special words on her wrist.

Her father, Dr. Ashok Chopra, was suffering from cancer and Priyanka had dropped her assignments to be with him. However, cancer did not stop him from accompanying his daughter to Vancouver earlier this year, where she won an award for Barfi. Unfortunately, her father passed away on June 10, 2013, with Priyanka and the entire family by his side.



In Priyanka’s words:

This is what the quintessential daddy’s girl has to say about her father; “I am my daddy's little girl. He is my superhero.” She adds, “The man I marry needs to be a chhavi (mirror image) of my dad. It doesn't matter which profession or place he belongs to, but he should be someone whom I respect tremendously.”

Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi is her daddy’s favourite. For her, Shatrughan Sinha is the world's best man and actor. When Shatrughan Sinha was hospitalised, Sonakshi left all her work to be with him. During his recovery, she even put him under house arrest. Shatrughan says, “There's only one woman I'm afraid of. I can't defy any command from my daughter.”

In Sonakshi’s words:

“My dad has a strong personality, but he is a real softy inside. He is extremely caring and a good role model to have. My brothers always like to believe that my father pampered me and I am spoilt.”

Anushka Sharma

Being an army officer’s daughter was not easy. Her father was not around most of the times, but when he would return home, she would not let him out of her sight. Anushka says, “I have always been daddy’s little girl.” Anushka attributes her success to her liberal upbringing, which helped to shape her personality.

In Anushka’s words:

Anushka says, “I am extremely close to my father and can talk to him what I can talk to no one else. If I am sad and he just comes and sits next to me, it has a calming effect on me."

Esha Deol

Esha believes her dad is a warm-hearted person with an open heart. She and her father have a mixed equation of mutual respect and friendship. This father-daughter duo love spending time at their farm house, watching movies and sometimes, even gardening.

In Esha’s words

“I am just like my father and I love his simplicity. Even I believe in simple living and in concentrating just on my work.”
