I’ve the closest bond with my father. He always wanted me to be a police officer and there was a time when I was preparing for the same but soon I realised that I wanted to be an actor. But I couldn’t dare to share this with my dad because he had a different dream for me. But one day I told him, “Papa, I want to be an actor and want to go to Mumbai to pursue my dream.” He took few seconds and said, “I am happy that you have decided your career and I’m always there for you.”
He is the kind of father, who expects nothing from his children. He helps me make most of my decisions. Today whatever I’m, it’s all because of my father. He also my buddy and mentor. I’ve learned a lot from him. He is a government employee in in accounts department but he hates corruption. He has taught all his children to be honest. When he is with me, I feel like I’m the strongest man in the world. Everyday I pray for his long life.
