Dotting-fathers-in-Bollywood

Bollywood stars don’t have it easy. With constant shoots, endless travels and hectic promotions taking a huge chunk of their daily lives, actors often find themselves short-changed for time when it comes to personal lives. And yet there are these doting dads who inspite of a hectic professional life, always take time off to be with their families and children! Shah Rukh Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and for many other Bollywood daddies, it’s all about making their children their priority and today on Father’s Day we would like to celebrate these super-dads for being such an inspiration to everyone around.

# Shah Rukh Khan: Shah Rukh Khan is not only famous for his movies, but also for being a hands-on father to his three children – Aryan, Suhana and AbRam Khan. His fun outings with AbRam, his adorable posts about daughter Suhana and being a rock-steady support for Aryan, SRK dotes on his three kids. In fact, his Instagram posts are a lot more about his fun times with his children, than it is about his films.

# Abhishek Bachchan: One look at Abhishek Bachchan’s Instagram accounts and it is easy to understand how much the proud papa dotes on his adorable seven-year-old daughter Aaradhya. Abhishek is often seen accompanying daughter Aaradhya on most of the outings and seeing him take to the stage post her dance performance recently was just too sweet. Clearly a super-dad, Bachchan Jr.

# Hrithik Roshan: If you want to do parenting right, then you’ve got to learn it from Super 30 actor Hrithik Roshan. Although he is separated with Sussanne Khan, he tries to maintain a healthy environment for his two sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan. And how can we not mention the crazy holidays that they take together! It is safe to say that Hrithik, with his duties as a father, is setting some serious parenting goals for many.

# Anil Kapoor: Well, he may still not look like a father to three grown-up kids, but Anil is one dad who’s always been extremely family-oriented. Right from being their strongest support system, to being a fun dad who the three – Sonam, Rhea and Harshvardhan – can just about share anything with, he has always been a friend to them. From his interviews to his social media posts, he has always been an encouraging and a doting dad and we love him not just for his films, but his off screen role as dad too.

# Aamir Khan: Mr Perfectionist is not just about being a perfect actor, but he aces at being a perfect father as well. He is quite protective about his three children – Junaid, Ira and Azad – and his simple and grounded upbringing of his children make him a super-dad.

# Akshay Kumar: Action star Akshay Kumar is a tough guy on the big screen, but when it comes to his children, he is the mushiest guy we all know. Father to son Aarav and daughter Nitara, he even has their names tattooed. One of the busiest stars in Bollywood, yet he always makes time for family vacations, and even on a daily basis spends quality time with them. He is a perfect role model for his children, constantly motivating them to lead healthy lifestyles and inculcate strong values as a family man.

# Ajay Devgn: A doting and an indulgent father, Ajay Devgn’s heart belongs to his two kids – Nysa and Yug. He is quite a hands-on dad and just like every father is also protective about his family. While he shares fun times with Yug, he shares a rather strong bond with daughter Nysa. A family guy at heart, he’s a super-dad for sure.

Smiling again looking at this…

# Shahid Kapoor: Well the award for one of the most handsome dads definitely goes to Shahid Kapoor. But besides being a cutie, Shahid is also a very family-oriented guy. He loves spending time with his kids – Misha and Zain and their pictures that he keeps posting on his social handles are super adorable. We already could guess that he is going to be a fab dad by seeing how he was there for wife Mira during her pregnancy and time is only proving us right.

# Amitabh Bachchan: If you want to see a proud father, well we have Amitabh Bachchan for you. Just like every other father, he is very proud of his two kids – Abhishek and Shweta. While always being modest about his own achievements and star status, the star has never shied away from showing off the achievements of his two children and now even grand-children! His strong bond with both his children Shweta and Abhishek was heart-warming and there for all to see in Karan Johar’s chat show episodes too.

# Karan Johar: Besides being a game-changer in the industry and a style king, this new dad sure knows how to win at the game of parenting as well. Karan Johar is a happy father of two munchkins – Yash and Roohi – and we absolutely love to see how he is raising them up as a single dad, with help from his mother Hiroo of course! Karan loves spending time with his kids and his social media followers love seeing their videos together.

# Sanjay Dutt: Sanjay Dutt is an absolute family man and his love for his daughter Trishala and munchkins Shahraan and Iqra is well-known. He is often spotted vacationing with them and he never shies away from showing off the close bond they share. He has often admitted to missing out on Trishala’s childhood that he still regrets, but he now shares a strong bond with her and is every bit a proud dad. He now tries to make sure that he is there for his children as much as possible!

We at CineBlitz would also like to wish every super-dad out there a very Happy Father’s Day. Stay tuned to this space for more news and updates.

It was that evening of the year in Melbourne, when the annual awards night marked its gala presence in the cultural melting pot. 2019’s award function at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne was a special one for many reasons. Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy walked away with the top gong of Best Film honour, whereas Vijay Sethupathi won the Best Actor for his widely acclaimed film Tamil film Super Deluxe and Tabu was named Best Actress for her performance in Andhadhun.

Zoya said, “I am so excited. I am not going to forget this evening. This is my first award in the capacity of a producer. Gully Boy was our first production. This is a good start. No one makes a movie alone and this wouldn’t be possible without my producers, my co-writer, my incredible actors and every member of my cast and crew. 54 invincible artists worked on this album. I owe this night to all of them.”

Sriram said on his win as best director, “I am thankful and overwhelmed with the response to Andhadhun and this award. A French short film inspired this movie. It was 7 years ago and the movie took a long time to make.” Upon receiving her award, Tabu said, “It’s my first time in Australia but I will remember it for the rest of my life. Thank you Sriram for writing this for me. This character is catalyst for change of roles for women that are being written and will be written in future. Thank you for trusting me with this character”.

Shah Rukh Khan, in his usual candour, said, “Thank you all of you in Melbourne. It’s an honour and privilege for me. Awards are odd because to me an art form be judged for its quality feels counter intuitive. Art is an expression and cinema is the ability to create emotions and share experiences through stories. To be an actor, is to live to know that each one is a mere illusion. When you are making a movie you can change a lot by changing the angle of the light and it strikes you that life is a lot like that as well. It’s the simple things that can alter your journey and pondering makes your story worth telling. I shot a film here 12 years ago and it was a straightforward film about a man who has lost hope in life picks on a team of girls and then they go on to win a world championship. This city had the simplicity I had seen nowhere else. When you get older like me, you realise things. I realised that film changed my life. It’s not the awards you get, it’s just the part of creating process that is an exhilarating experience for an artiste.”

Here’s a complete list of winners:

  • IFFM Best Short Film: My Name Is Mohamed And Raghad, We Don’t Exist Here Anymore by Ali Mousawi AND Be My Brother by Genevieve Clay
  • IFFM Diversity Award: Onir
  • Telstra People’s Choice Award: Simmba
  • Celebrating 20 years of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai: Karan Johar
  • IFFM Best Director: Sriram Raghavan for Andhadhun
  • IFFM Best Actor: Vijay Sethupathi for Super Deluxe
  • IFFM Best Actress: Tabu for Andhadhun

Nikaah, Halal, Phir Ussi Mod Par – 4 films that dealt with Triple Talaq

The subject of triple talaq is not new to Bollywood. Time and again, filmmakers have dealt with this social issue faced by women in the Muslim communities. Here we check out five such films that have explored the topic on screen.

Nikaah

Nikaah (1982) movie poster

The film was a social comment on the Shariat law of divorce. The film was initially titled Talaq Talaq Talaq, but director BR Chopra had to change the title of the film to Nikaah after one of his friends pointed out that the title will dissuade Muslim families from watching a film that was propagating Talaq (divorce). Chopra changed the title to Nikaah but could not stop people from filing cases against the film.

Starring Raj Babbar, Deepak Parashar and Salma Agha — it was the story of a woman who is married to a man who does not have any time for her — resulting in an altercation that leads to the man spelling out Talaq three times to her.

Phir Ussi Mod Par

Another Muslim social that attempted to talk of the practice of Triple Talaq. It is the story of a woman of substance and fortitude who gets duped in love facing an unjustified ‘Triple Talaq’. She raises her son against all odds only to see him subject her daughter-in-law to the same fate in a most unjustifiable manner. The woman rises to the occasion squarely meeting the daunting challenges of society and clerics to ensure that justice prevails. Directed by Lekh Tandon the film failed to impress at the box office.

Halal

Halal (2016) movie poster

The film deals with the theme of loyalty, love and the institution of marriage that is deemed to be pious by society. It is a story of human emotions, which depicts the trials and tribulations that women in our society go through. The film is about a woman whose husband divorces her so that she does not face the ire of his mother. As per the Muslim customs, the woman has to marry again and divorce the second husband if the first husband wants her back.

Directed by National Award Winner Shivaji Lotan Patil, the movie featured Chinmay Deepak Mandlekar, Priyadarshan Jadhav, Pritam Kagne, Vijay Chavan, Vimal Mhatre, Chhaya Kadam, Amol Kagne and Sanjay Sugaokar.

Code Blue

Code Blue (2019) movie poster

‘Code Blue’ refers to the life-saving emergency code and in this movie it revolves around this girl, whose story is inspired by a real-life incident. The protagonist is pushed to the limits by society’s malpractices and how she comes back and fights those evils, is what Code Blue is all about. The battle of a girl from a dead-end! Made in association with Rahat Kazmi Films, the film features Alok Nath, Rishi Bhutani, Sushmita Mukerji and Khan in lead roles.

Khan wants to use the medium of movies to bring to light the lives of women who find their lives shattered with this instant divorce practice. She says, she felt traumatised when she encountered cases of women having to endure the mistreatment and misuse of the oral talaq system.
